Allez Vins! operated as a wine merchant specializing in importing French Regional Wines until its closure in 2005.Allez Vins logo

Since then we have been working on a number of websites using the knowledge of France and French wine and vineyards which we acquired during many visits to all corners of France to source great wines!

We can particularly recommend

  • Frenchvineyard.co.uk – vineyard accommodation in France – B&Bs, gites/cottages, hotels and guest houses; visiting vineyards and wine villages
  • FrenchDuck.com – with a focus on travel and within France, whats on in France, French wine and food!
  • FrenchDuck.co.uk – holiday accommodation in France

In Allez Vins! we now offer a wine merchant’s guide to the best Books on France, Wine and French Wine!

As the owner of a small independent Wine Merchant business in North Yorkshire, I specialised in French Regional Wines, finding lesser-known wines from some of the hidden corners of France. We bought many wines direct, often because the vineyards selected only produced quantities too small to be of interest to the larger chains and supermarkets. We sold these wines direct to the public through our shop, online and through the many wine tastings we offered.

To discover these wines involved many trips to France and hence we have developed a wide knowledge of France and its wines.

We closed the wine business in 2005 due to ill-health, but our love for France and its wines has continued, which is why we are able to offer recommendations for books on France, Wine and French Wine which should help to enhance your enjoyment of your next trip to France and your next bottle of wine from France and elsewhere.
