Boutinot started life in Greater Manchester in 1972 when Paul Boutinot begin to collect wines from France and bring back to Manchester to sell at his parents restaurant. Paul's reputation quickly begin to grow and it wasn't long before other restaurants were asking for him to sell them wine and the company was started in 1980 as a wine supplier.
