Vineyards and Partners' philosophy
We don’t buy bulk wine to bottle it, we take part of the wine making.
Created at the early 2000s, Vineyards and Partners is above all a qualified sourcing, “a jewel finder” for its customers around the world and a precious and indispensable help for wine growers who see their wines shine far beyond of the French borders.
Deeply committed to a quality, a responsible and a societal approach, V&P wishes to work over the long term with its winegrower partners. We have been working with certain winegrowers for more than 20 years. Likewise, our customers located in the four corners of the world have shown great loyalty for several decades.
Vineyards & Partners sets itself apart from other merchants by tightening control over the wines sold. 100% of the wines shipped are controlled.
“We control 100% of the wines we sell.”
