Meadowdale Wines was born on the beautiful Isle of Wight in 2014, trading all over the UK via Internet and direct sales. To broaden our range we have now teamed up with other ecological wine merchants so that we can provide great wines to the local community from all over Europe, South America and New Zealand. Over the Internet we still concentrate on our original boutique selection. We are now also heading to Denmark with selected wines. Early 2016 brought two new, exceptionally dedicated team members to the business. When not having tastings in restaurants, or displaying at fairs, they do research on all things wine and educate themselves, including completing their Level Two in Wine and Spirits award at WSET London Wine School (still waiting on the results of Level Three - fingers crossed). Always on the hunt for new and exciting wines from small, independent, artisan wine makers we regularly attend wine fairs at home and abroad.
A WORD FROM THE FOUNDERS
We learnt about ecological wines after first having come across a television documentary about poisons in some conventional, factory wines. Horrible stuff that was! Timely, we then went to Copenhagen to meet a natural wine guru. After a session with him we were hooked. No time to loose. We had to find out what this is about so we went to Italy, Slovenia and London to wine fairs to taste wines, meet and discuss with wine growers. A new world opened up, treacherous sometimes maybe, but so many wines with vibrant flavours and tastes that we never experienced before. We asked a Japanese importer - why do you buy these kind of wines? He said: Listen to them, and they will reveal their secret. We haven't got that far yet, but we can say one thing: Trust your taste buds! That is what we do. The wines our taste buds are happy with, we bring to the Island where we live and have tastings with local people, friends, neighbours; people from all walks of life. Only when we all agree that we have a good wine in front of us, do we consider buying. This is what makes our wine collection unique.
Don't waste time drinking bad wine, enjoy only the best. #trustyourtaste # winelover
