BOUTINOT - What’s all that about then?
Simply put, it’s all about the wines, always has been, always will be. We love wines with that ‘drinkability’ factor. They can be big or slight, racy or serious, famous or obscure but at the end fo the day they have to be wines you actually want to drink and not just score out of 10.
We're confident about the quality of our wines and are always delighted at the recognition they receive - no more so than from the results of the Sommelier Wine Awards 2011, where we were awarded Merchant of the Year for the 3rd year running:
"Phenomenally strong in all the staples of the wine list, the vast majority of medals came from France, Italy, Spain and 'Essentials' like Sparkling Wine and, particularly, House Wine." Chris Losh, SWA Competition Director
We’re unapologetically commercial.
We like to sell wine and so price and value are high on our priorities list. As well as being agents for some of the best producers around, we also create a fair few bottles ourselves as producers and therefore know better than most that whilst it’s relatively easy to make or find fantastic wines at £10 +, it’s actually somewhat more difficult to do that at £5.
So, we invest a lot of time and effort at that lower end and we think we’re pretty good at it. And as you’ll see from the portfolio, we’re fairly savvy at the interesting bit in the middle and of course the downright daring and sexy stuff at the top end.
We're about people too.
Some really good folk work at Boutinot and whether it's customer service, logistics, sales or whatever, there is a culture here of people really wanting to understand your business and offer ideas, solutions and opportunities. Making friends is big for us and we work hard to bring producers and our customers closer together.
Having passed the thirty year milestone, a nice age to be, we’ve learnt how to do most things quite well but are still up for a challenge and a bit of fun. If you are an existing customer, you’ll already know that so Log On and use the site for your business needs but then don’t forget to actually speak with us too!
