the big idea
Think of Findwine.co.uk as your very helpful shop assistant who kindly recommends you fantastic wines every time you go and visit him. You will choose the right wine every time with our simple wine selector.
There is a huge amount of choice in the wine world and so we have given you a helping hand in trying to reduce that choice. We only sell 54 wines at any one time to make it easier for you to choose which one you want. But it should also encourage you to be adventerous with your choice, don’t be scared of trying new wines!
We buy small parcels of all of our wines, which help’s us find new and interesting wines for you. However it does mean there is often a limited quantity and therefore once it’s gone it’s gone. So as good as it might taste you have to trust us to replace it with something equally good.
Here are some slighty more in depth explanations of our styles. Click on them to view each description...
The home from all the fresh, clean flavoured wines you could wish for. They are mostley dry and crisp and fragrant and leave you with a zingy buzz.
This category contains some delectable beauties. Wines with lingering exotic fragrances and subtle intoxicating flavours. Think white pepper & lemons, honeysuckle, jasmine and violets.
This is not referring to what you need to be to purchase the wines. We are referring to the rich, lovely creamy and peachy nature of the wines. These white wines tend to embody the heavier end of the white spectrum. Great big rounded wines, that will put a smile on your face every time you open one.
Rose is surging towards poll position for Britain’s favourite summer drink. There are many different styles of Rose, enough even to warrant a separate website but we have tried to represent a broad range in our selections. Bring on the sun!
LIGHT AND FRUITY
This style contains some of the softer red wines the world has to offer. Do not mistake the word lighter to mean thin, on the contrary these are some of the most elegand and refined wines there are. Anyone who has seen the excellent film "Sideways" will tell you just how sought after a good light Pinot Noir is!
Some really sumptious wines fill this category, they all have a certain depth and distinction but with soft, rounded edges. Stephen Fry woulld be the human version of this style. Rich, warm fruit that also contains a darker, heavier side.
RICHER DEEPER DARKER STRONGER
We are in talks with Kanye West to replace his lyrics "harder, better, faster stronger" with the name of this style. As yet we haven't heard back. Although if I know Kanye like I think I do, then he would love all the wines in this category. Each one has a glorious brooding, almost mystical opaqueness that invites you to gaze into them and resolve all life's questions.
Another one of our cryptic style headings. I know you might find it hard to believe but all these wines hae bubbles in them, as in they're fizzy...clever huh? The idea of putting fizz in wine was a French one and only made possible by brilliant British glass making, the technique in various guises has been transported around the world. This is what we reckon is good for spraying all over the place or just drinking. I will offer one tip; Champagne always tastes better when opened with a sword.
Although we believe all of our wines are delicious, these are 6 that we really, really like and the ones we tend to take home and curl up in bed with. They are from all over the place and are all different styles. The one consistent quality is that they are very, very tasty indeed. Try them before they disappear forever... probably into my cellar!
the story of find wine
It all began with a job interview years ago. Mike and John met in a wine stained office cluttered with cases of wine and tasting glasses in a notorious wine shop in North Yorkshire. Tomfoolery, drunkeness and record breaking Christmas sales followed but little did they know one day they would be running their own wine business together.
John and Mike went their separate ways. John disappeared into a very serious career in the wine trade, supplying wine to the great and the good of the North of England. And Mike drank a lot of wine!
A chance reminiscent text message led to a pint, which led to briefly working together again, which led to a dicussion about starting a wine business together. Six months later, Mike’s dog had destroyed the web designers’ studio, John finally admitted he could not tell between the coloured discs on the buying page and the pair set about adventuring and exploring the wine world to lay out the delicious treats you see before you.
This is it, please enjoy using the site and tell all your friends about how marvelous it is. Mike and John are currently undertaking the tireless process of choosing more wine for the website. If you want to ask them anyting, email them: Mike@findwine.co.uk, John@findwine.co.uk
