Richard Ellison set up his online-only merchant Wanderlust after 10 years in finance, to offer top drawer wines from lesser-known producers. Its focus is sustainability: all wines offered on the site are organic. The remit includes natural and biodynamic wines, which are made using minimal machinery, intervention and chemicals.
Ellison notes that ‘provenance in food and wine is increasingly important. People are much more passionate about it and interested to explore.’ Wanderlust’s wines are sourced directly from producers to ensure a fair price is reached. The company also provides private client wine sourcing and a curated wine club, and will deliver wines to your door within hours of purchase.
