Established in 1980, Boutinot has grown to become one of the leading UK based distributors of quality wines from around the world. France is one of Boutinot’s production hubs, where they manage the creation of various labels. Boutinot’s winemakers work by both vinifying fruit from their own vineyards, and by working with partner growers with whom they have long-standing relationships. Many of these French wines are produced from single domaines, each with an individual identity.
Since the beginning, Boutinot has been exploring the country’s vineyards to make outstanding wines from specific sites and plots that best represent the location and terroir. They are very particular about what they do and who they work with to ensure every bottle contains only the best wine sourced from the finest grapes. Being a producer enables quality control of each wine that they craft – a unique advantage Boutinot has over other distributors.
