About the Wine

Four generations deep in Sancerre, today the enterprising Eric Louis leads his family estate.

The compound interest of such rich local history? They’ve accumulated over 35 hectares of vineyards, across 3 villages of Sancerre and 60 distinct parcels, meaning even this junior bottling is expressive and lively.

With its heady ripe notes of passionfruit, lifted by green apple and kiwi zest, this is fleshy, fresh and sophisticated Sauvignon.

About Domaine Eric Louis

Domaine Eric Louis is the key label within a group that is collectively known as the Celliers du Pauline. The name comes from Eric Louis’ great grandmother Pauline, who founded the family estate back in 1860.

Based in Thauvenay in the south eastern part of the Sancerre region, Eric Louis is the fourth generation working the vines.

Their holdings now extend to 35 hectares across 60 different vineyard parcels. These are located in the villages of Thauvenay, Ménétréol and Sancerre et Vinon.

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
