Meet the importers
“Port O.Bristol” by Xisto Wines solely import Portuguese wines from small artisan producers that put 100% of their skill and passion into making wines that reflect the varietals and terrior of Portugal. They strive to be the most sustainable wine importers from vineyard to table to make their wines as good as local.
Founded in 2019, Déjà Bu Wines is a Burgundy wine specialist selling a carefully selected organic and biodynamic wine range with a focus on lesser-known appellations. They work with artisan vignerons whose dedication and love for their work shine through the wine they are producing
Spiegel & Peach are a brand new Bristol based importer and wholesaler, created to service the Bristol independent trade and add a bit of interest to wine lists. Their wines are made in family wineries, with minimal intervention, and are selected to be accessible in style and price.
