Wayward Imports

We work with a number of small growers in France & import wine from these producers directly and exclusively. 
We are interested in wine from growers who are in tune with the land on which they work, employing organic or bio-dynamic practises to produce low yields of healthy fruit from unique vineyard parcels. This philosophy follows through to the cellar where the wine is made with as few additions as possible - in some cases non at all.
We feel these wines best express the place they come from and the people that make them. They are the wines that we like to drink and we’re very pleased to be bringing them into the UK. We hope you’ll enjoy them too.
