In 1969 a young Tony Laithwaite was at work for the summer, toiling in the Bordeaux vineyards and spiriting home local vintages for lucky family and friends. By the end of 1969, and with the help of a faithful Ford van, the young Laithwaite was importing serious wines for serious buyers at home in the UK. Using the sensible moniker “Bordeaux Direct,” Laithwaite offered just five wines initially and only sold to about 150 customers, but as his oenophelic investigations expanded, so too did the business.
As one of the first importers of any nationality to prospect for wine in the southern regions of France, Laithwaite developed personal relationships with small vineyards in Bergerac, Duras, Cahors, Madiran, Gaillac, Minervois, Saint-Chinian and so on eastwards into Spain, Italy and eventually even Australia. Selling only wines bottled directly by the producers, Bordeaux Direct gained a reputation for excellence and soon became known as Laithwaites. After more than 4 decades in the business, Laithwaites now delivers wine to more than 700,000 customers worldwide and remains committed to quality, novelty and above all customer satisfaction.
