Drinks of France is based in Brentwood in Essex where we have a small warehouse full of the fabulous discoveries we have made travelling around France. We are open for tasting the second weekend of each month and on these occasions customers have the opportunity to sample a dozen wines free of charge, as well as any of our aperitifs and spirits that they wish. Always check the events page for exact dates.
We import exclusively from small family owned, independent vineyards which means that there are no middlemen and no mass-production. The result is that quality is never compromised and value is always ensured.
We began by selling the wonderful aperitif Pineau des Charentes but now, several years later, we supply a wide range of products from across France. In almost all cases we have personally met the producers and visited their properties. This makes for a good working relationship as well as giving us a feel for the terroir which has produced the wine.
When selecting our wines we rely not only on our own judgement but also on the views of customers whom we like to involve in the decision making progress. This gives us the opportunity to be in tune with the tastes of those who buy our wines and to interact closely with them.
We hope you enjoy exploring the site, and experiencing the true taste of France.
