The London based wine merchant UKV PLC believes each and every wine consumer should know as much as possible to make an educated choice about the wine they are seeking to purchase, collect, or simply enjoy drinking. Unlike most wines where the vineyard itself produces a label that gives an explanation of the grape variety used and some basic information, the French wine industry uses labels produced under government direction; labels in France create a different option for consumers as the concept of terroir remains influential for those who feel they enjoy the flavors and aroma’s of French wines.
Experts from UKV PLC explain the concept of terroir places as much value on the location grapes grow in as it does on the variety chosen for any wine; labels use the appellation system that rates the area a vineyard is located in up to the Appellation d’origine rating that is reserved for only the top wine producing locations in France. French wine experts believe the grape is important, but the climate and soil conditions of a vineyard also add flavor and subtle hints of the minerals found in the ground to add to the complexity of many French wines, according to the experts at UKV PLC.
The UKV PLC company offers consumers many benefits when looking to both buy and sell wines from all regions of the world. UKV PLC has built a network of contacts that include wine experts, fellow wine merchants, and private individuals who are contacted when the company attempts to aid a client in selling their prized wines.
