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.

  • Le Mazel Cuvée Briand 2018 | Wayward Wines

    Le Mazel Cuvée Briand 2018

    Briand is 100% Grenache and is, in our opinion, a perfect example of how this varietal can express itself in this part of the world. The fruit is spicy and red, with a beautiful perfume full of wild fennel and clove. The wine is neatly cut through with...

    La Vrille et le Papillon Le Canon d'Achille 2020

    The second vintage of this hugely popular wine made by Méryl and Géraldine's teenage son, Achille. This is a decidedly juicy carbonic maceration of Cabernet Sauvignon, made in that glouglou style with good times in mind. Treated in this way...

    La Vrille et le Papillon Les Fees Papillon 2020

    Generous rosé of Syrah with ripe strawberry fruits upfront, a gentle waft of wild herbs and some savoury structure beneath. A short maceration on the skins bleeds in a flash of colour and adds substance. A pleasingly versatile wine, with lots to...

    La Vrille et le Papillon Caprice du Chameau 2019/20

    Savoury, textured Viognier from the windswept Western Rhône. A warm gold in the glass, there is ripe, mouth-coating apricot fruit and some prickly spice at its core; a wonderful example of how this grape can be expressed in this part of France. A...

  • La Vrille et le Papillon Q Blanc 2020 | Wayward Wines

    La Vrille et le Papillon Q Blanc 2020

    Incredibly tasty wine made from younger vines of Ugni Blanc, that lesser-sung French sibling of Trebbiano. Much the same as that Italian grape, it offers yellow fruits with something a little saline and mineral - but there is also a lovely oily citrus...

    Le Mazel Cuvée Mias 2018

    Wild, bracing Viognier that is a world away from the more soft, perfumed style. Much like the Charbonnières Chardonnay, this wine is robust and packs something of a punch; a very different expression of the grape. The wine ferments spontaneously...
