Yapp Own Label Wines
Jason and Tom select the wines for the Yapp own labels annually.
"It is imperative that the wines bearing our name provide the same price to quality ratio as the rest of our portfolio. To a certain degree, it is as much of a challenge to find great wine for every day drinking, as it is to discover those world-renowned agencies."
Jason Yapp, Director of Wine.
