Boutinot Wines

Boutinot Wines

At Domaine Boutinot, Cairanne, in the heart of the Southern Rhône we strive to make wines which show the best of the Côtes du Rhône. Starting with hand picked grapes, many from old plots of traditional varieties, we use time-honored winemaking techniques. Patient maturation in different sized oak barrels adds complexity to our wines three wines from Cairanne, including La Côte Sauvage, and allows us to enrich the blend of Les Coteaux, Côtes du Rhône Villages. Together with a Séguret, a Provence style rosé and La Fleur Solitaire, our Côtes du Rhône Blanc, there are seven award winning wines in the Boutinot Rhône Fide et Arte range. 

Domain Boutinot is owned by Manchester based Boutinot Wines. Founded to supply wine to Manchester’s restaurants, Boutinot are grape growers and wine makers and exclusive agents for over 150 of the world’s most interesting wine producers. Boutinot’s commitment to provide great wines at competitive prices has been recognized in many ways over the years, more recently by holding the Sommelier Wine Awards ‘Merchant of the Year’ title for six consecutive years.

Fever-Tree

Fever-Tree

Fever-Tree is a premium natural mixer brand that creates its drinks from only the finest natural ingredients. The founders, Tim and Charles have spent years trekking the globe seeking out unique, natural ingredients from independent farms and plantations. Their ingredient hunting led them to the Rwanda Congo border to the last quinine plantation in the Congo which produces the best quality quinine in the world. This quinine is blended with spring water and 8 botanical flavours, including rare ingredients such as marigold extracts and a bitter orange from Tanzania to produce the distinct taste of our tonic water. Fever-Tree have gone on to develop 9 more drinks from this. The award winning natural mixers taste clean, subtle and balanced, all with authentic flavours.

Reserve Wines

Reserve Wines

Reserve is the finest independent wine merchants in Manchester, run by people with a passion for the great grape. We have a massive local following due to our commitment to making wine accessible and fun for everyone, stocking a huge range of 'boutique' wines from family owned-and-run wineries across the globe. Don't get tricked into thinking that we're pricey though - there's something on our shelves for everyone, and we pride ourselves on the quality of every bottle we sell, from £4 to £400. We know they're good because we've tasted them all (it's a hard job, but someone has to do it).

We love to get visitors in our shops more than anything else, but seeing that isn't an option for everyone, we make every bottle we sell available to buy on our website or over the phone - that way we can spread the word of wine worldwide!
