Great businesses are built on collaboration. At Bacchus, we are very proud of our partners and we have listed them below so you can find out a little bit more about why we love them!
Our flagship supplier in Tuscany, Italy! Fattoria La Vialla (farm the villa) is a family run vineyard with a difference. The family use biodynamic and organic farming to produce fully sustainable wines that are also carbon neutral and vegan friendly. Oh, and they also have a farm shop selling their 100% traceable produce. Yup, these guys do it all and it’s not without having passion and purpose at the centre! You’ll find their various wines in our World Wines, Explore Italy and Viva Vegan wine tastings.
Below, you’ll find Fattoria La Vialla’s web link as well as a link to Andrew Jefford’s article from Decanter Magazine (needless to say, he’s mega impressed with their offering).
Sharpham do wine and Sharpham do awards! In fact, it’s fair to say that Sharpham collect awards like horcruxes! No less than 45 awards (yes we’ve counted) adorn their current wine range. Devon have a gem in the English wine making world here and we are all too happy to offer their wines. Find select choices from their range in either our Explore England tasting and as ‘guest appearances’ across our other tastings.
The Little Waddon Vineyard is set in the heart of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. They produce sensational single vintage, low intervention English wines. The first wine we sampled was their Col Fondo, a frizante style sparkling wine, and we were smitten instantly! We’re confident you will be too. Visiting Dorset? You can visit their vineyard and even spend the night!
ThinK Wine Group produce our Vegan friendly Prosecco and sparkling rose. Not only are these delicious wines vegan and vegetarian friendly, they are also low sugar and low calorie. We’re very proud to say that we are the only wine tasting company that ThinK supply directly to.
We are currently working with Michele Fagot’s Champagne house to bring their sensational Champagne to the UK. We will be the only importer of their Champagne to the UK! That sounds crazy we know. Here’s the thing… Many retailers, such a supermarkets, need large volumes and will reluctantly stock high quality (high price tag) bottles from relatively unknown names-it’s just too much of a risk for them. Germany, however, know a good thing when they see it, as they are currently the largest importer of Michel Fagot’s Champagne. Well we’ll take a small slice of that cake too! We do like to know what takes place on the ground, so we visited their Champagne house ourselves. We’re pretty sure they treat all their guests like royalty or maybe it was just us… Either way, their Champagnes will be featured in our Champagne tastings very soon that’s for sure!

Coveted wine critic, journalist and wine writer Jancias Robinson is a true advocate of the benefits of serving wine at the correct temperature. At Bacchus, we are not brave enough to disagree with Jancias! Therefore we use the Kelvin K2 thermometer and app to ensure all our wines are at the ideal temperature before serving them at our tastings.
Jancias Robinson’s guide to serving wines at the correct temperatures is below: http://www.jancisrobinson.com/learn/drinking-wine/how-to-serve-wine
