LEA & SANDEMAN in London

An established and respected independent London wine merchant, Lea and Sandeman (established some 20 years ago by Charles Lea  and Patrick Sandeman) style L&S as “most original wine merchants”

logoLea & Sandeman is about wines to drink – not just wines that impress at tastings. We particularly emphasise drinkability and try to offer wines which do not just impress on first taste, but leave you wanting another glass.

More important than meeting price points, Lea and Sandeman is about value for money. From the very beginning this meant sourcing wines direct from growers. Although many of the domaines and growers on our list today are the same as when we started, our range has developed over the years, reflecting the introduction of both traditional and innovative producers. We are not name-buyers, we are quality buyers – our Sauvignon de Touraine is better than cheaper Sancerres, our Sancerre is among the best in the appellation.

Lea & Sandeman is about wine with personality. Our search for quality has led us to producers who work for the best expression of terroir and grape varieties, with the minimum of intervention, resulting in wines which are not only refreshing, but also uplifting to drink.

Excellent range of wines, many awards and a brilliant website with online ordering and regular tastings show why L&S were awarded “London Regional Wine Merchant of the Year” in the international Wine Challenge.

Voted as one of the UK’s Top 50 Independent Wine Merchants 2017 in the wine trade magazine Harpers.
