In the heart of the English East Midlands you will find a Frenchman determined to showcase some of the best French Wines – at Derby wine merchant Pierre Hourlier Wines, where it is claimed that many of the best French wines are kept for the French!
Happily, Pierre Hourlier Wines is owned and run by a Frenchman, Pierre Hourlier – together with son, Jean-Pierre and wife Susan. We have travelled throughout France, seeking out lesser-known wines of superior quality – and because we are French by birth, nature and inclination, we’ve been able to discover many wines that lesser wine-merchants are simply not told about by French producers keen to keep the best for themselves!
We have developed personal contacts throughout France with those who are passionate about wines and wine-making – but we are particularly excited about the Languedoc-Roussillon area, which is producing some of the best, but least-known wines in all of France.
The website is a delight – fresh and informative and delivered with French style. The range is limited to France, but then these are the wines which they know and can recommend. Online ordering is available, as are Wine Tours to France which look to be very interesting. Sadly there are no premises to browse around – this is an online and mail order operation – but if you want to discover some great French wines then this is the place to head for.
