Marcel the wineman, French wine refills delivered to your door

At Made in Little France, for over 8 years, we have been very really happily sourcing and importing fantastic wine from small independent producers. Sad to find out that approximately 50% of glass is not recycled in the UK, we have been working to launch Marcel, a home delivery service of French wine refills, based on the milkman model. You can now order wines from our selection of red, white or rosé. Marcel will deliver wine, right to your door, in reusable bottles.

Visit in the heart of Beaujolais wine country with Patrice Chevrier

Visit in the heart of Beaujolais wine country with Patrice Chevrier

Advocating an eco-friendly approach to agriculture, the team has committed to comply with High...

Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrivé !

Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrivé !

Every year since 1951, the third Thursday of November, tucked between Halloween and Thanksgiving, marks an entertaining event for the worldwide wine community: the release of the new-vintage Beaujolais Nouveau wine. As every year we have stocked this fresh and new vintage wine from one of our very reliable producer, Patrice Chevrier. Domaine de Sermezy is situated near the village of Brouilly, in the heart of Beaujolais, Burgundy's largest appellation owned by the Chevrier family, the 18-hectare Domaine in its existing form was created when current owner Patrice's parents got married and joined their lands together. Patrice took the helm in...
