Meadowdale Wines was born on the beautiful Isle of Wight in 2014, and trades all over the UK to restaurants, bars and individual customers via the internet.
We have continued to grow and diversify. In 2018 our business expanded into Denmark and Sweden in response to increased interest in sustainable wines across Scandinavia.
We are a small dedicated team running the business, constantly on the hunt for new and exciting wines. We conduct frequent tastings in restaurants and at wine fairs, and keep our knowledge up to date through qualifications with WSET and The Court of Master Sommeliers.
Our mission is to source handcrafted, ecological, sustainably made wines from small to medium sized producers who have a passion and drive to make wine with respect for nature and the consumer. We only source wine which is made without the use of synthetic chemicals and the use of low levels of sulphites.
We believe wine made this way is better for us and for the environment. This way the true aromas and flavours haven’t been masked or altered by chemicals. They are wines true to the grape, the people, and the place. They portray the character of the terroir and the environmental factors in which the vines grow.
These are the special wines we hope to share with you.
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
