Emile Wines is a London-based, female-founded wine importer and retailer.
Our portfolio is dynamic and unique, offering authentic, terroir-driven wines from Burgundy and California’s elite, whilst also championing wines off the beaten track from across the classic regions of France. Much of the portfolio comprises organic and biodynamic wines and all of our growers work towards the philosophy of sustainability, often with a low-interventionist approach.
Emile Wines is the destination for restaurant quality wines you can enjoy at home. Predominantly we sell to the crème de la crème of London’s dining scene (Noble Rot, Café Cecilia, Spring, NoMad, Lyle's, St. Bart’s, Ikoyi, The Connaught and Sketch, to name a few) and every bottle in our online shop can be found in some of the country’s most exciting restaurants.
We carefully select our winemakers based on artistry, wines with a sense of place, authenticity and environmental consideration. Every bottle and item you find on Emile has been thoughtfully chosen and we hope Emile is a place for inspiration and discovery. Predominantly it is a curation of truly brilliant wines, although we also bring together beautiful items to make your drinking experience all the more enjoyable.
