At Stone, Vine & Sun we are committed to sourcing fine wines that truly reflect the land they are grown on.

Stone, Vine & Sun was named after the three most important influences on a bunch of grapes, and therefore wine: the earth, the plant and the weather. It reflects our belief that wines should have a sense of place. As a result we strive to buy from independent, family-owned producers, whose husbandry of their land increasingly encourages the adoption of sustainable, organic or bio-dynamic methods of cultivation.

We specialise in the Rhône, Burgundy, Languedoc-Roussillon, and the Loire Valley, plus South Africa and South America; as well as having an extensive range of wines from other regions of France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, New Zealand and the US. You are sure to find the perfect bottle or case here. Try one of our mixed cases, our range of fine wine, or simply browse among our wine gifts, services and opinionated comment.

    The Times Top 100 Mixed Case

    “Two of our French wines passed Jane MacQuitty's strict selection for The Times 100 best wines for summer. Our white is a long-term favourite here, young Olivier Fichet's unoaked Macon. It's particularly lively and fruity this vintage. The second is a wine we only shipped for the first time this spring, Mas d'Amile's silky and refined old-vine blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan from the top terroir of Montpeyroux in the...”

  • Badenhorst, Secateurs Red, Coastal Region, 2012

    Product Code: BAD612

    Badenhorst, Secateurs Red, Coastal Region, 2012

    “A very lightly oaked blend of 55% Shiraz, with 33% Cinsault, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Tinta Barocca, 2% Pinotage and 1% Mourvèdre. This has so much more suavity and perfume than most Cape reds, the Cinsault and Grenache bringing some freshness and grace. It offers smooth red fruit, a bit of spice and all just rounded by big old oak vats. Applauded everywhere. Now-2016”

    Product Code: VOL212

    Volcanes de Chile, Tectonia Grenache - Petite Sirah - Mourvèdre, Central Valley, 2012

    “This is a blend of grapes sourced from Rapel, Maipo and Maule respectively, so just Central Valley on the label. Inky deep purple. Liqueur cherry and blackcurrant aroma. Very ripe and very concentrated indeed: one for lovers of old fashioned Aussie blockbusters. Cassis and brambly fruit with a liqueur richness. Woodsmoke and forest floor notes. Some would say this is over the top: others will love it! Now-2017”

    Product Code: ROS314

    Cherrier Père et fils, Sancerre Rosé, 2014

    “The Cherrier family have been delivering fine Sancerre to us for years now. Pierre took over the 14 hectares of vineyards on the sweeping slopes at Verdigny in 1962, and has now passed on the baton to his two sons, François and Jean-Marie. The uncomplicated and vivacious fruit of the classic white here signifies bench-mark Sauvignon Blanc. Alongside the white and rosé, we list the family’s red for the first time.”

    IWC Dinner, 16th July 2015

    As promised, more on the IWC dinner where SVS was awarded the Specialist Wine Merchant for Chile award. It was quite an evening. Much as I don't want to bite the hand that awards me, the inner old fart in me had some issues. OK, I can just about cope with the disco lights and the incessant, pounding pop music (does this have to punctuate everything now, from international cricket downwards?). BUT... the dinner. If you are going to charge 200 quid a ticket, and put bottles of trophy or gold medal-winning wines on each table, you must serve decent food. But what did we get? OK, I didn't see the crib sheet, but what I appeared to be served was a roundel of Shippam's meat paste with pickled vegetables; followed by some dark-skinned fish in sweetish teriyaki sauce. So the august organisers of an event celebrating the world's wines managed to come up with one course dominated by vinegar and one by sugar...both well-known wine-destroyers. No red meat,  aaargh....A real shame, as it was in many ways a jolly occasion with some top merchants and producers there. The best dressed group were the Japanese, there in force for sake awards, but I also loved coming across the couple in the photo, winner of the Taiwan Fortified Trophy (yes, there's a big world out there....)

    With Tim Atkin, MW, Co-Chairman of the IWC

    Back after midnight (driving, so a dry evening, felt a bit weird in this crowd) from the annual International Wine Challenge dinner, clutching the award for Best Specialist Merchant for Chile (tiny slingshot carrier from Hampshire sees off the Goliath of the splendid Wine Society).
