Our names are David Mair and David Miller.
We are two dedicated wine enthusiasts who want to pass on our enjoyment of wine to as many people as possible. We both have regular employment outwith the wine trade, but we want to let you enjoy some of the wines we have tasted and which we think you would like to try.
Our aim is to buy good quality wines at the most reasonable prices possible, and then to sell those wines on without making ridiculous amounts of money in the process. We cannot compete directly with the supermarkets but we aim to sell equivalent wines at a better price or better wines at an equivalent price.
Our slogan is "New World Wines from the Old World" and we aim to import wines directly from France, Italy, Spain, etc that we consider to be of an equivalent style to wines that you can buy from Australia, California, Chile, etc. The wines that we import are wines that we have personally tasted and that we consider both to be of a quality that everyone will enjoy and to be good value for money. We shall specialise in wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon area of France. We shall however offer wines from the New World when we are given the opportunity to sell them to you at prices that we consider to represent good quality and good value for money.
We have learnt from experience that it is extremely difficult to import wines directly and sell them at £50 per case. This does mean, unfortunately, that the minimum price per case that we are likely to sell our wines at will be £60 but, if we get the opportunity, we shall not hesitate to sell a case for less than that. Occasionally, we may have samples of wines that we are considering to include in our cases or on the website and, when we do, we shall sell them in the minimum quantity and at the minimum price possible.
We may also have a premium case available. Again, all these wines have been personally tasted by us. The aim of the premium case is to give you the opportunity to sample wines from both the Old World and from the New World that you are unlikely to have the opportunity to sample if you do not buy this case.
