“It’s great to see someone promoting new and unheralded winemakers, there’s a lot of love in these wines”

– Tim Aiken, Master of Wine

Our winemakers know they can make a brilliant wine but just need a little help. They don’t have the resources to make their dream wine. They don’t own vineyards or have exclusive rights to the best grapes where they work, even if it is a family vineyard. Some don’t even have winemaking facilities. All they need is help to do what they do best, make great wines.  

There are significant up-front costs at vintage and then you must wait patiently for months or even years. The wine is left in the capable hands of our winemakers and the wait is always worth it. They are paid their normal fee to make a wine, the difference is it’s theirs. The only ‘rule’ is they must make a wine that is capable of aging. 

 

To give you an idea we picked the grapes for Virgil Kerr’s Pinot Noir in April 2011, bottled it about a year later and started selling it with bottle age in August 2014. He believes it will be at its peak from 2015-18 and he was right, it is stunning (93/100 from Tom Cannavan)

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

M-Wines is genuinely built on personal stories and relationships, it sounds a bit cheesy but it is true. I always include a page for “The Cast” of all the people involved in making a wine. I now want to add “Supporters”, “Sponsors” and a “Patron” to that page.

 Philip Morton will host a private tasting for you and your friends or colleagues covering 6 wines on the night. We will try and skype in one M-winemaker to answer questions on the evening – good Wi-Fi connections and international timing permitting (NB for practical purposes this will be restricted to within 50 miles of London)
