Started in 1979 when Frenchman Jean-Claude Schmitt came to England with his English wife Suzanne, The French Wine People are wine merchants in Matlock Derbyshire with customers throughout Great Britain and Europe. We are wine importers, wine wholesalers, restaurant wine suppliers and retailers. Over the past twenty years we have built up a good reputation for sourcing fine French wines from small Chateaux and vineyards, where we personally know the growers. Many make award winning wines which are only available through us. Through group buying we also supply some of the smaller, boutique orientated brands, at competitive prices or wines with “ personality “ from most countries in the world. Cristal Champagne from Louis Roederer or the full range from Cloudy Bay are just two examples. – Description from milana

  • So on a whim we decided to visit British Columbia. But we flew up to Washington, so visited a few places there too. Totally off the subject of wine, I found an awesome bakery in Spokane and the girl there served me this thing that I thought was a kind of Parmesan cheese foam. In fact it was fermented cashew whip, which was definitely weird, but ... Read More

  • "So, what are you going to do on your Travelscope Flavors of Burgundy and Provence cruise aboard Emerald Waterways next July,” one of my viewers asked me.  While I could spend hours speaking about the joys of traveling in France, I restrained myself and answered the question as succinctly as possible --- “A lot.”I guess some details are in order...

  • If you haven't had wines from Romania, you’re missing out. Big time!I know this is a bold statement. With so many amazing wines being produced worldwide today.

Is this an American prejudice?Duncan, it is not clear to any of us what the OP's agenda is.  He/she apparently picked that as his/her Snooth handle, made one post and has left.I think most people have wine preferences--I know that I certainly do--but I would not describe the attit...
