If you are after characterful wines from small independent wine makers, you’re in the right place.

Founded in 1969, Yapp Brothers Wine Merchants is widely recognised as the UK’s leading importer of French regional wines and was named Specialist Wine Merchant of the Year for the Rhône, Specialist Wine Merchant of the Year for Languedoc-Roussillon, and Specialist Wine Merchant of the Year for Regional France at the International Wine Challenge Awards in July 2015. The company is rated as one of the 'Top Ten Wine Shops in the UK' by The Times and 'Top Ten Online Wine Merchants in the UK' by The Independent.

In November 2012, the Telegraph Weekend published a double-page spread on the history and ethos of Yapp Brothers, written by Victoria Moore. You can read a copy of the article here: A good Yapp about great wine.
