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.

    La Vrille et le Papillon Z Rouge 2018

    Great to have some stock of a back vintage that is benefitting from that extra bit of time in the cellar. Z Rouge is a blend of roughly 50/50 Syrah and Merlot. The Merlot sees only tank, but the Syrah is fermented and raised in old barrels for 9 months,...

    Elisa Guerin 'La Vigne de Mon Pere' Moulin-à-Vent 2020

    The aromas here are wine open, with a lifted floral perfume. With Moulin-à-Vent generally providing more meaty intensity, here an impressive balance of muscularity and elegance is on display, with a granular feel to the grippy tannins. Dark, inky...

  • 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 La Tribu 2020

    La Vrille et le Papillon Les Fees Papillon 2020

    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

    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...
