Quality and authenticity

We exercise great care in making our wine selections to ensure quality at all price levels. Wines which we offer for sale, whether they are $15 or $150 a bottle, are wines which we believe provide a high level of quality in terms of their price and denomination of origin. We will not offer wines that do not meet our high standards.

An exceptional Choice

We take pride in our product selections. Our list of Bordeaux is particularly extensive and covers Crus Classés and Crus Bourgeois from leading properties. We also have a range of wines from elsewhere in France as well as Italy, the USA, Spain, Australia, and other countries, all of which have been selected with the same care as our Bordeaux portfolio. We have made a serious effort to find limited production wines not available from other merchants. All our wines are stored under temperature-controlled conditions as all fine wines should be (but usually are not!).

Punctual and professional delivery

At Millesima, we strive to deliver your wines as promptly as possible. You can expect to receive any bottled wines marked as “Available” at your indicated shipping address within one week, barring weather-related delays.

History
Introducing... Patrick Bernard and Millésima

Millésima was founded in 1983 by Patrick Bernard and thanks to its expertise and reliability has become Europe's leading fine wine mail order merchant.
The company began life as Les Vins des Grands Vignobles and became Millésima in 1988, when it published its first catalogue of 100 of Bordeaux's greatest wines, the Grands Crus Classés. Patrick Bernard's aim then, as now, was to bring some of the world's greatest wines direct to wine lovers from the Châteaux.
Since 1992, we have published our list every year on January 1st and it is now available in Germany (€), Belgium(€), Portugal (€), Austria (€), France (€), Switzerland (CHF), Great Britain (£), Ireland (€), Luxembourg (€),Italie (€) and Spain (€). Over the past 15 years, we have made over 300,000 deliveries to more than 65,000 satisfied customers and our expert knowledge and range of top Bordeaux wines is recognised and applauded by the international wine press and the wine trade. We continue to supply more and more wine enthusiasts with top wines from France, Europe and the rest of the world.
