Meet some of the winemakers you'll be helping

3,000 Angels needed to help French winemakers going through tough times

  • Small-scale artisan winemakers in France are going through their toughest year in living memory. These guys rely on bars and restaurants, wine fairs and tourism to sell their wines, so they’ve really struggled. Millions of bottles of wine are stuck in cellars, going nowhere.
  • With bills mounting, and the need to clear space for this year’s vintage, many winemakers are resorting to selling their wines in bulk to the government for a pittance, to turn them into hand sanitiser. That’s why we’ve decided to help.
  • Play your part in helping France’s little winemakers stay in business, and in return you’ll get a one-off case of restaurant-quality wines we’d never normally get, from some of the most talented artisan winemakers in France
