At Desoutter & James our aim is to become the reference point for UK wholesalers and distributors looking to discover exciting new Spanish wines. As wine-loving residents of Spain for over 30 years, we have seen a revolution in Spanish winemaking. But we still see that many exceptional wines from Spain are simply not making it to the UK market. We want to change that. With a long background in commercial relations between the UK and Spain, we’ve developed a network of personal contacts across the Spanish wine sector, and a deep understanding of how the sector works. So we can provide you with a single point of access to the Spanish wine market whenever you need it.
What makes us different?
Our wines are held in Spain, and can be sold either ex-works directly from the individual wineries, or grouped together in mixed pallets with wines from other wineries. With all the complications following Brexit, that means you, the buyer, still have the freedom to pick and mix wines from across Spain and combine them in a single order. So you can explore Spain’s lesser-known wine-producing regions and native grapes while still keeping costs under control.
What we can offer
A GREAT WINE LIST
We offer a carefully selected list of artisanal wines from small to medium-sized winegrowers all over Spain with a wide variety of grapes and styles.
We can put together bespoke, mixed pallets orders made up of wines from multiple providers all over Spain. Giving you the flexibility to choose the range and volume of wine you buy.
GROUPAGE & TRANSPORT
We can ensure hassle-free, groupage shipping from a single point in Spain. We work with the transport providers and handle all aspects of delivery to your chosen UK destination
HELP WITH BREXIT
Importing from Europe just got more complicated. We help keep things simple. After grouping your order we can help streamline the paperwork to ensure a hassle-free trip back to the UK.
A variety of varietals
We work with a broad cross-section of grapes to reflect the choice available in Spain’s wine sector. From the traditional tempranillo and the upcoming albariño, to lesser known varieties like bobal, we can deliver against your clients’ expectations whilst offering a route to more interesting and less explored wines.
We work with talented and enthusiastic winemakers from across Spain. Focused primarily on small to medium sized vineyards, we seek out artesanal family vineyards who combine a deep knowledge and understanding of their heritage with a willingness to be bold and modern in their approach to making wine.
Our wine selection
And because we work with a wide range of producers, who in turn work with a wide range of varietals, we can offer a wine list that satisfies the core needs of any UK distributor whilst offering you the chance to branch out and try new wines that the competition won’t be offering.
