Smashing Wines import a wide variety of quality French wines, specialising in promoting small producers who respect the environment and their vineyards, concentrating on producing natural, biodynamic and organic wines. A lot of time, tasting and selecting has gone into creating the wine list we offer today, gaining UK exclusivity with many vineyards.
With our main focus on quality we only work with exceptional organic, biodynamic and natural wine makers. We believe that organic, biodynamic, and natural winemaking leads to a naturally superior product. The individual "personality" of each wine can be fully expressed in the glass for us to savour.
The Smashing Wines concept was born in Meribel, French Alpes, on one evening over Christmas 2014 when three friends, Clement, Tom and Rebecca were enjoying a bottle of Chateau Haut-Brion 2005. Three friends and one huge thing in common – the love and passion of great wine! Many conversations and many bottles of wine later, Smashing Wines was created.
Tom’s passion for French wine developed over 10 years of living and working in France during the winter months. Rebecca too spent 6 months living in Bordeaux where great wine was so easily accessible and at such affordable prices. Clement who is French and spent 15 years living in Bordeaux was the one who really pushed the concept forward. Every time he visited England he would be shocked at the quality and price of wine. More so the lack of French wine available. With France and England being neighbours he couldn’t understand why so much of the wine available was from other countries much further afield.
From day one Smashing Wines mission was to promote small, quality producers, concentrating mainly on organic and biodynamic winemakers from across France. They worked closely with a wide range of winemakers, gaining UK exclusivity on many wines to create the wine list available today.
