Wines Export Agency produces and distributes a distinguished French portfolio of high-quality.
Across France there are fantastic wines that deserve more than a local audience. By traveling constantly, in Bordeaux, Burgundy, Provence, Côtes du Rhône, talking with those working in the vineyards and cellars, tasting many, many wines, we select only those that represent true expressions of excellent terroir.
Purveyer of french fine wines, and selected by our team manage by James Arth our globle winer, our portfolio represents a group of these of France’s most unique and independent vintners hailing from the country’s finest appellations. Both visionaries and traditionalists, they embody a new wave of progressive winemaking in France that integrates innovation into the tried-and-true, old-school practices a fusion of Old World and New World ideologies that respects both le goût de terroir as well as varietal integrity. As many of these freethinking vignerons studied abroad, they now thrive when thinking outside of the box, and very few among them subscribe entirely to one set way of farming or winemaking that does not respect the environment and the human.
This said, all of our partner producers are strong proponents of quality, and they absolutely hold certain tenets to be true. As thoughtful stewards of their terroirs, all farm sustainably (sometimes organically or biodynamically), often employing the lunar calendar, cover crops, plowing, strict pruning and canopy management to achieve a superior quality of fruit that is most representative of the vintage. Most of vineyard work is done by hand. In the cellar, their use of modern equipment and non-interventionist winemaking techniques produces wines that are at the same time classic and modern, bright and fresh, balanced and finessed, and deeply aromatic.
We work with small, medium and large producers who respect the land and techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation.
Finally we are driven by this constant ambition : to distribute the best wines.

The many sinuosities of the relief and the variety of soils allow Alsace to offer a wide range of wines, dry and sweet, quiet and effervescent. However, thanks to its temperate and cool climate, the vineyard’s main asset lies in the optimal ripening of the white grapes, Pinot Noir being the exception. Identification of wines by their grape variety – riesling, gewurztraminer, sylvaner. . . – is one of the other Alsatian specificities, as well as the presence of great vintages.
Main grape varieties : Riesling, Pinot gris, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, Sylvaner,…
With an international reputation, Bordeaux is the largest appellation vineyard in France and one of the most prestigious. This vineyard is organised around three river axes: the Garonne, the Dordogne and their common estuary, the Gironde. While red wines are the vast majority, it offers all styles of wines, most often resulting from the blending of several grape varieties: in red, Merlot and Cabernets dominate; in white, Semillon and Sauvignon. In addition to the wide appellations, it is customary to distinguish the “left bank” (of the Garonne and Gironde: Graves and Médoc), to which are added the vineyards of sweet wines and the “right bank” (of the Dordogne and Gironde: Libournais, Bourgeais, Blayais).
Main grape varieties in red : Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc

Burgundy is a historical vineyard, one of the oldest in France. Shaped in the Middle Ages by the monks, then by the Dukes of Burgundy, it is rich in estates often modest in appearance but of great prestige. Although it occupies only 3% of the land planted in France, it is the richest in appellations of origin: the number reaches 100. Pinot noir and chardonnay reign as masters. It is therefore the extreme diversity of microclimates and terroirs, known in the region as climates, and not that of the grape varieties, that determines the immense variety of wines of this vineyard. Several ensembles are individualized: the vineyards of the Yonne in the north, famous for the Chablis, the Côte d’Or, the heart of the vineyard, the Chalonnaise coast and the Mâconnais, more southerly.
Main grape varieties in red : Pinot noir et Gamay
Main grape varieties in white : Chardonnay et Aligoté
Mountain in the sea, the Île de Beauté and its turbulent topography offers a multiplication of slopes and hillsides, microclimates favoured by the proximity of mountains and valleys and a lack of soils beneficial to the vine. The vineyard runs all around the island, close to the coast. Alongside imported varieties, grapes not found on the mainland are cultivated, such as sciaccarello and nielluccio, which are the source of typical red and rosé wines, the vast majority, or vermentino en blanc.
Main grape varieties in red : Sciacarellu et Nielucciu
Main grape varieties in white : Chardonnay, Chenin et Muscat d’Alexandrie
This immense vineyard stretches along the Mediterranean coast. It covers three departments: Aude, Gard and Hérault. It offers a variety of landscapes and a mosaic of terroirs between sea and mountain (Corbières), influenced by the Mediterranean climate, giving rise to a wide range of red, white and rosé wines, natural sweet wines and sparkling wines. Wines, which have long been assimilated to mass viticulture, have been constantly renewed for almost thirty years.
Main grape varieties in red : Grenache, Mourvèdre, Carignan et Syrah
Main grape varieties in white : Roussanne, Viognier, et Grenache
The Loire, the longest river in France, is famous for its Renaissance castles that stretch along part of its course, bathed in a unique light. From the Atlantic coast to the Massif Central, it is dotted with vines, as well as its tributaries, forming a link between the vineyards of the Pays Nantes, those of Anjou, Saumurois, Touraine and Centre. These regions make up a larger wine-growing area than the Loire Valley in the strict sense, its central part. The most varied climatic nuances and terroirs allow the production of almost all styles of wines: dry whites, mellow and sweet, effervescent, light reds or more tannic, rosés. . . Most of them share a freshness that gives tone to even the sweetest wines.
Main grape varieties in red : Cabernet franc,
Main grape varieties in white : Chenin, Sauvignon, et Melon de Bourgogne
Singing accent and cicadas concert : welcome to « Provence !
The vast Provençal vineyard stretches almost 200 km long, from east to west, from Nice to south of Avignon, and 60 km wide between the Alpilles and the Mediterranean. Swept by the wind (Mistral), Provence enjoys a sunny, hot and dry climate. Alongside the pine and olive trees, the vines occupy very diverse islets, and if one finds the three colours of wine in this land of sunshine and wind, it is rosé that reigns supreme.
There is a Holiday air in this world-famous French région, especially with the « Riviera ».
