Lea & Sandeman: Most Original Independent Wine Merchants

Lea & Sandeman is about wines to drink - not just wines that impress at tastings. They particularly emphasise drinkability and try to offer wines which do not just impress on first taste, but leave you wanting another glass.

More important than meeting price points, Lea and Sandeman is about value for money. From the very beginning this meant sourcing wines direct from growers. Although many of the domaines and growers on their list today are the same as when they started, their range has developed over the years, reflecting the introduction of both traditional and innovative producers. They are not name-buyers, they are quality buyers - their Sauvignon de Touraine is better than cheaper Sancerres, their Sancerre is among the best in the appellation.

Lea & Sandeman is about wine with personality. Their search for quality has led them to producers who work for the best expression of terroir and grape varieties, with the minimum of intervention, resulting in wines which are not only refreshing, but also uplifting to drink. More information at
