Soif D’Ailleurs

This phrase in French means Wanderlust and describes the range and approach excellently.

The notion of the outlet embodies that well worn story of the traveller who has been to somewhere previously unseen that produces great wines, whereupon they then enthuse endlessly about them. Of course it is an unfulfilled tale, as the availability of these wines for us in the travellers domestic setting is nil. So we are never given the opportunity to enjoy (or otherwise) our intrepid voyagers’ finds.

For founder Mathieu Wehrung the idea of the French only range ‘c’est fini’.

At ‘Soif’ you will find wonders from Canada, Chile, New Zealand, Germany, England even! You’ll find varieties aplenty, only a few known in French production circles.

Legrand Filles et Fils

Although a retailer at their core their range of imported wines is impressive. Starting out in the late nineteenth century showcasing and retailing foods from all corners of the globe, the outlet was taken over by the Legrand brothers in the early part of the 20century. Pierre Legrand’s eldest son, Lucien carried forward his father’s love of wine and discovered famous producers such as Rousseau, Dauvissat, Trévallon and Sélousse.

The shop became legend for artists of all genres to meet and discuss… whatever with a glass of wine.

Whilst the selection is clearly dominated by the French classics, there are the telling ‘New World’ classics of Penfolds, Ridge and other selected specialities from various corners of the world.
