Les Vins de Sylvain (LVDS)
Hello, and welcome to Les Vins de Sylvain.
We are a small London based company selling a wide range of high quality wines that have been hand selected from independent wine producers. We stock wines at a range of prices, all of which represent good value. We deliver within the M25 free of charge if you spend £80 or more.
I have always loved wine, and always had many bottles open in my house to taste, and I have long had links with vineyards across the country where I come from. However, in 2011, while I was working as a waiter at Shepherds Restaurant in Westminster, I decided to follow up passion and set up full time. In fact my first private customers were two people I served at lunch! (Chateau Monlot from Saint Emilion from the wonderful 2009 vintage).
Richard Shepherd who owned the restaurant (and was London's first ever Michelin starred chef) gave me a leg up by taking some of my wines at the restaurant, and then at Langan`s Brasserie in Green Park.
Since then I have been lucky enough to continue to serve many of London's best restaurants, bars, hotels and catering companies with my company LVDS. But the heart of my business will always be delivering a case or two of wine to a person, or a family, who I know will enjoy it. That's where this site - Les Vins de Sylvain - comes in. I source, select and deliver all the wines to your door myself. It is business, but still a personal passion.
I hope you enjoy looking round the wine shop finding something for you. I have tried to make sure there is something for everyone.
If you have any comments, or want to tell me about a wine you particularly enjoyed, please send me a note.
