Vincisive was established by two airline pilots, Darren Brogden and John Edwards. Their extensive travel around the world has allowed them to experience an enormous diversity of wine styles and qualities, bringing them in to contact with some of the finest wines and estates on the planet.
The decision to form Vincisive was taken after we discovered the wines of Uva Mira on a tasting trip to Stellenbosch. Matthew Van Heerden, Uva Mira’s talented young winemaker, is currently producing one of the world’s best Chardonnays and we were simply ‘blown away’ with its quality. Realising that these wines were not available in the UK we readily agreed to begin importing them. Their sheer class was something that needed to be brought to the UK as an example of the restrained elegance that can be achieved with a balanced, sustainable approach in the vineyard and minimal interference in the winery.
In partnership with Mark Chamberlain, an independent wine merchant based in the Cotswolds, we now specialise in looking for small, boutique producers who have exceptional quality wines to bring to the UK. Only hand-crafted wines that pass our exacting criteria will be considered for our portfolio so that you can be assured of their quality, integrity and unique sense of place.
