Vinocation is a French wine merchant, selling direct to the trade, and the enthusiast. We import wines from a small, specially selected number of producers, who have impressed us over the years with the quality and value of their wine and the excellence of their customer service. The producers are known to us personally, and we have spent time getting to know them, their vineyards and their range. Most of the producers are typical French ‘viticulteurs’ – family producers where winemaking is in the blood, and whose families have been producing wine for generations. However, we are careful to work with forward-thinking winemakers, who move with the times and are keen to adopt new methods.
Wine tastings are normally run in combination with restaurant customers and feature wine pairings with different courses.
We work with the restaurant to provide an evening of entertainment and education enjoyed by all, and always beneficial to the restaurants rapport with their customers. We can also run tastings for businesses, allowing staff to mix or network with colleagues or contacts in a relaxed yet professional environment. We can shape an event according to your requirements. Please contact us for more details.
Our wine consultancy extends not only to restaurnts and bars but also to companies with in-house catering. Many companies are grateful for help and advice in selecting their wine list. We are able to discuss requirements with staff and advise and offer our premium quality wines, for in-house lunches, dinners or banquets.
We offer a wine curation service for individuals to stock their cellar. We will help you choose and purchase your everyday drinking wines, and also help you select and buy those more expensive wines which will be kept in a cellar either for drinking at a later date or for investment.
