There is no doubt that some of the greatest sweet wines in the world come from Sauternes. We are pleased to bring you an offer of a fabulous mature Sauternes from the great 2007 vintage that has received sensational reviews from the critics, yet we can offer it at £100 per case less than when it was first released a decade ago.
Beaucastel's Perrin family make some wonderful wines beyond Château de Beaucastel. Here we have their fabulous Coudoulet Côtes du Rhône and,a wonderful Vinsobres, both with great reviews.
Who says that you can't get a good bottle of Bordeaux for less than a tenner? Not us, as we have a parcel of 2015 Fourcas Dupré which is delicious now and just £110 per 12 in bond.
Following the biggest ever tasting of Kumeu River Chardonnays by a group of distinguished critics, Hunting Hill 2016 received rave reviews and huge scores. At just £240 per 12 bottles in bond, this wine gives its old world counterparts a serious run for their money.
There is only one wine in the Farr Vintners portfolio that carries our name on the label - a Pauillac that hails from one of the very best properties in that appellation and that punches well above its price point.
Two excellent articles have appeared in the press recently regarding the remarkable Vin Doux Naturels (VDN) from Philippe Geyral that we are proud to represent and distribute in the UK. We currently stock over 60 different vintages of these brilliant fortified sweet wines from the youngest, 1989, to the oldest, 1874.
Louis Mitjavile of Bordeaux icon Le Tertre Rôteboeuf has turned his hand to crafting this fabulous wine from Corsica. This fascinating, oak-aged Sangiovese made by one of Bordeaux’s best winemakers will have your fellow wine lovers stumped at blind tastings!
We are convinced that you will not find a better Margaux at a lower price from the great 2009 and 2010 vintages than this pair of Séglas.
The 2014 vintage of our biggest seller is here and ready to drink. At just £75 per 12 bottles in bond, Fleur de Thénac Rouge is the ultimate house wine.
Despite all the hype surrounding Provençal Rosé, it is still possible to find a world class, inexpensive wine with serious pedigree. Miraval Rosé is that wine - get it while you can!
The temperature is rising so what better reason than to stock up on our fantastic Rosé! The 2017 vintage has just landed....
Tronquoy-Lalande 2010 is a sensational, classic St Estèphe of obvious classed growth quality for the modest price of £320 per 12 bottles. With excellent reviews from major critics and the Farr Vintners seal of approval, this will make delicious drinking from now and for years to come.
From one of the oldest and very best producers in all of Italy comes this remarkable wine that belies its price and status. 2013 Barolo Castiglione, Vietti is "intense, voluptuous" and “…may very well be the single most compelling value in Barolo today.”
When it comes to value for money in Bordeaux, we genuinely believe that it is quite impossible to beat the brilliant Lalande Pomerol wines of genius winemaker Denis Durantou.
Château Batailley’s name has become synonymous with quality and value and this 2012 is a delicious, ready to drink wine from a “chateau that is capable of producing great wine.”
