ABOUT TEN-ACRE WINES LIMITED

Ten-Acre Wines Limited.

first joined the wine trade in 1978 and spent his formative years learning from some great palates who used to supply the good and the great in Cambridge and Oxford, ending up as wine buyer at the award-winning La Réserve wine merchants in London, and for a time this small independent chain had one of the finest selections in the country. In 2004, he decided that the time was right to go his own way and formed Ten-Acre Wines. Why Ten-Acre? Brian grew up on a fruit farm, and this was the name of a favourite family orchard. The trees were tall, and the picking difficult, but the fruit was always the sweetest.

is Sales Manager at Ten-Acre. A former La Réserve Manager, he rejoined Brian in 2006 following a hiatus with Fine & Rare Wines. Having reached the conclusion that he was happier selling wines he had tasted and enjoyed, all it took was the offer of a damp warehouse and a corkscrew to get him back on board!

We are committed to providing a personal, professional service tailored to your requirements, with next-day national delivery and gift services available on request. Expert advice direct from

 wine merchants; no more call centre nightmares - we are always available to chat about our wines and tailor a tasting case for you, or help you plan a cellar. Our goal is to help you drink the best without breaking the bank.

Information and knowledge are key to making good decisions so if our site seems a little ‘wordy’ compared to some it’s because we take what we do seriously. If our knowledge and professionalism enables you to have a better glass of wine or a better dinner party then we’re doing our job properly.

From classical Grand Crus to exciting new ‘everyday’ wines we are passionate about what we do and the wines we list. Try and you will notice the difference.

Husband and wife team Karine (cellar) and Nicolas Mirouze (vineyards) took over the family estate in 1999 and set about turning a bulk outlook, where quantity took precedence over quality, into a much smaller operation where quality was put first, second and third.  They have reduced the area farmed from 50 hectares to 25, and reversed the damage that years of high production methods had taken on the soil; now 100% organic, the soil, like their grapes, is full of life and vitality. ‘The longer growing season is the key to our wines’, Karine explained of her hillside vines, ‘we pick up to 10 days later than our neighbours down in the valleys because of the cooler nights, which, ultimately allows us to produce more complex and refined wines’.  Vines grow on the shallow, sandy soils, and the dry Tramontane wind (like the ‘Cape Doctor’ in South Africa) helps prevent mildew and related diseases; vines are forced to dig deep through the limestone bedrock for nutrients, adding complexity to their grapes.

Product information

Angelo's vineyards lie on the steepest slopes in Roero and, now with the help of son Stefano, he has carved out a reputation for top quality, generic and single vineyard wines in this highly dynamic part of Piemonte, acknowledged by the many Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri awards he continues to collect.

"Very helpful knowledgeable staff" - K, Yorkshire

The Ferraris story begins in nineteenth century when Luca’s great-grandfather Luigi emigrated to America during the gold rush and sent what he mined back to his wife in Italy to purchase a house and land. In 1923 his son purchased the four hectare vineyard called Il Casot, and begun to make and sell his own wine. Luca's father inherited these vines but worked in Turin, so sold the grapes to the local cooperative until 1999, when Luca took over the reins, restoring the old cellar and starting to make his own wine from the vineyards.
