Pre-sells is also known as 'en primeur'. It means reserving top vintages before they are bottled. By paying an instalment 'up front', you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, months before official release.
Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn't enough to go around. Pre-release guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines - providing you are quick!
Now you need only pay the 'cellar door' price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty - around £21.84 a case at today's prices) plus VAT on the total. Prices are for 12 bottles unless otherwise specified.
Once we receive your order we will send you a Reservation Certificate to your customer address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we'll contact you to advise which are still available.

Pinot Noir is best known as the red grape that dominates the renowned vineyards of Burgundy. As anyone who has seen the film Sideways will know, it's also hugely popular in the States - especially in California, home of the boutique winery. This lush red is from Kautz Family Vineyards, founded in 2001 by John Kautz. John built his own state of the art winery so he could have total control of production from grape to bottle. There the wine is treated very gently, using the special 'rack and return' (of the juice) method during fermentation to ensure good colour and structure, rather than the usual pumping over. This preserves the wine's silky texture - a prime characteristic of good Pinot Noir. A fine partner for cornfed roast chicken.
