Mischief & Mayhem was founded in 2004 as a partnership between two old friends from opposite ends of the globe, borne out of a recognition of the region's ability to bring frustration and elation to the consumer in equal measure.
The dynamic duo of Englishman Michael Ragg and Australian Michael Twelftree have a substantial background in the world of wine, where the former worked for a decade in the London wine trade before taking up residency with Aloxe-Corton. The latter is the driving force behind the hugely...

The village Chablis comes from several parcels all of which add intensity and character to the wine. The 2017 has an aromatic bouquet of white flowers with a vibrant palate of green apples balanced by an energetic mineral freshness and a hint of white pepper. Perfect from release. Armit Winesmore

The 2013 vintage was very difficult vintage to manage, with a heavily reduced crop after the hail. This superb White Burgundy has a lovely perfume, and very Puligny-Montrachet in style.

Sheltered by the great monoliths of Solutré and Vergisson, the terraced slopes of Pouilly-Fuissé produce some of the greatest whites in Burgundy.

With Ragg's first-hand knowledge of the region and experience of its wines and Twelftree's passion for wine and knowledge of international markets, Mischief & Mayhem has two gifted and ambitious creative forces behind it.
Rather than attempt to build a domaine by buying land, Mischief & Mayhem sources its fruit and juice from a variety of growers with whom they have built close relationships. This gives the flexibility to only work with fruit that comes up to their strict quality standards rather than being forced to produce wines from substandard grapes due to the obligation of owning the land from which the grapes were grown. The range generally extends from Grand Cru to generics but is always fashioned in a style that encourages early drinking as well as the option for further cellaring.
Time and again, when we put these wines in customer's glasses, they come back for more.
