wine importer from the UK
Oliver and bird - Specialist wine merchant...
Oliver & Bird was born in 2004, out of a desire for the individual and authentic. Having studied, made, tasted and of course drunk, significant quantities of wine we were left feeling that ubiquity and uniformity were the trends that endangered our drinking pleasure.
With this at the forefront of our minds we decided, with the laughter of many ringing in our ears, to commence by importing wines from small, family run producers in the Languedoc region of Southern France. Why? Because we knew the region extremely well having made wine there and we knew that in many cases this region, with its huge diversity and ever improving quality, was the best place in the world to source superior wines at the most reasonable of prices.
Since our initial foray into the Languedoc we have continued on our mission to visit the wine regions that we love, regardless of prevailing fashion, and import those wines that have the most personality and sense of place. We like to be a little different and this difference has resulted in our ever increasing success.
