  • Think Pink this St. Valentines Day

    St. Valentine's day is the perfect opportunity to treat that special person in your life, perhaps you plan to prepare a special meal at home, if so and If you really want to set the romantic tone, why not go with a special bottle of wine?

    Obviously, some wines are more suited to such an occasion than others and in my opinion, nothing says romance like rosé sparkling wine or Ch...

  • Treat yourself to a Shiraz this Australia Day!

    With today being Australia day, I thought I would use my blog to celebrate Shiraz, the best-loved vinous export from the land down under. While this grape variety, known as Syrah in its French homeland is not native to Australia, they have certainly made it their own in the relatively short time since it was introduced to the Country by James Busby in 1831 and since that time the spel...

  • Wine for Christmas Day

    On Christmas day in our house, I try to keep the food traditional but as simple as possible, the wines need to be versatile and appeal to a diverse but demanding audience – my family. We would always start with bubbles and because its Christmas we would pour Charles Heidsieck Champagne as a treat -  deliciously brioche in character, rounded and elegant it matches very well with pre-lunch snack...

  • Top tips for pairing with Turkey

    With Thanksgiving being celebrated all across the USA this Thursday and around the world by the American diaspora, I thought we should take a look at some wines for serving at the Thanksgiving dinner table.

    Of course, I know most of us won’t be celebrating with a Thanksgiving dinner, but I think it’s fair to assume that those of us who do will be sitting down to the tradit...

  • Great wines to Serve with Tapas

    Visiting the Wines From Spain Trade Fair earlier this week, I was reminded of just how diverse and exciting the range of wines produced in Spain is. Also on show at the fair was a delicious selection of tapas, Iberico ham and other cured meats.

    Given that Tapas is now one of Irelands’ favourite dining styles, I thought I would use this week’s blog to highlight some Spanish ...

  • Autumnal Reds in our Annual Wine Sale

    There may still be plenty of sunshine about, but It is fair to say that autumn has now taken hold and as the leaves are falling and the evenings begin to draw in, our appetites tend to move towards richer, more robust dishes, the same goes for our wines, so I have chosen below a selection from our Annual Wine Sale, all which are suited to roasts, hearty casseroles and cosy evenings in...

  • Lighter reds for summer

    Whites and Rosé wines grab a lot of the attention in summer, and even when reds are mentioned, often it will be a big spicy wine to pair up with a BBQ.

    However, there is a wide range of lighter red wines which really come into their own when the sun is shining and some of them taste even better when lightly chilled.

    I have picked out a few such wines below, all of which...
