The French Connoisseur
The French Connoisseur is a very personal affair. It was born from the desire to bring to the UK unique wines and champagne from carefully selected French vineyards and wine-makers.
We personally go out to France to find and meet local producers. We visit their vineyards, learn about their wine-making methods, discover their history and, of course, taste their wines! We import directly and exclusively from these handpicked producers.
The wines we sell are not specifically made for export. They are authentic local wines. You will not find them anywhere else in the UK.
We import from producers located in well-known wine-making regions of France who develop great wines thanks to the quality of their soils and traditional wine-making methods.
Most of our wines have been granted AOC status "Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée" which is regulated under French law. The rules and regulations that go along with being classified as an AOC wine include restrictions as to the geographical location of the vineyard, grape varieties allowed as well as methods of viticulture and wine-making used, thereby providing a guarantee of quality and consistency.
In addition, a number of our wines have received medals at various France or worldwide wine contests.
