Expression du Terroir
Expression du Terroir is the wholesale arm of London-based independent wine merchant Borough Wines. We are independently owned and exclusively supply the on-trade and independent retail sectors.
By working with dynamic, emerging winemakers rather than big domains, we aim to bring the best, most authentic expressions of a region’s terroir to the UK market. We specialise in French wines – with a particular focus on Bordeaux, the Loire and the Languedoc – but also work with producers in Italy, Spain, Portugal and lesser-known winemaking countries like Hungary.
We are the sole UK importer for the majority of the wines in our range, which includes many organic, biodynamic and natural wines too. More importantly for us, all of our wines provide excellent value for money, as well as something a little bit different, to help us and our customers stand out.
With this in mind, we also supply the pioneering Borough Wines ‘Straight from the Barrel’ system. This efficient, economical and environmentally-sound wine bottle refill system is popular with independent retailers, as well as in the on-trade sector and with events companies and caterers. The wines available ‘by the barrel’ change every four to six weeks, ensuring the offering remains interesting and compelling.
The Expression du Terroir service goes beyond the wines we sell. A dedicated Account Manager is on hand to help with list changes and staff training. Online ordering provides an added level of convenience and is backed-up by interactive sales and account support.
All stock is held locally and delivered by us, maintaining the personal touch synonymous with Borough Wines.
