  • The new wines for July have landed

    By all accounts, we are due for a mini heat-wave this weekend, to help make the most of this warm spell while it lasts, there are lots of Summer treats available in your local O’Briens store. 

    Regular readers of the blog will know that, weather permitting, I never miss an opportunity to get the BBQ lit, and this weekend certainly be no different, but as this weather also s...

  • Brilliant BBQ Wines

    With a  fairly good weather outlook ahead, I thought now would the perfect time to have a look at some simple guidelines on how best to pair wines with BBQ dishes successfully.

    Above all, you should choose fresh, fruity, wines; zesty, citrusy whites, and bright, fruity reds and take care to avoid overly oaky wines either red or white and also avoid any red with heavy tannins.<...

  • Early Easter Treats!

    With Easter looming large on the Horizon, many of us will be thinking of serving the traditional roast leg of spring Lamb, and the classic partner of red Bordeaux to serve alongside it.

    So, it is very apt, that we have just launched our spring Bordeaux parcels promotion, of course buying Bordeaux can seem daunting for some, so to help de-mystify the region, I have laid out a fe...

  • Break out the Bubbles this Mother’s Day!

    Not that we should need an excuse to spoil the Mothers in our lives, but Mother’s Day is a great reminder to do so. 

    And of course, when it comes to wine, nothing says treat, quite like a bottle of bubbly.

    Regular readers will know that Just last week I was writing about Prosecco, so for today I will be focusing on traditional-method sparkling wines; two Champagnes and one v...

  • Pick up a Prosecco.

    With 20% off our entire range of Proseccos as part of our Italian wine sale, there can be no better time to pop in to your local O’Briens store and pick up a bottle of Ireland’s favourite fizz or even to branch out and try something new as we also have a number of other Prosecco-style wines included in the line-up.

    Of course, I’m fully aware that the vast majority of Prosecco enjo...

  • A taste of ‘la Dolce Vita’

    Our Italian wine and Prosecco sale starts this Thursday, so I was inspired to have a look at matching some Italian wines with some classic Italian dishes.

    Italy probably produces the most diverse range of grape varieties and wine-styles of any country, but if there is one thing which unifies all these wines, it is a common vision among winemakers to primarily produce wines whic...

  • Just Arrived!

     

    One of the best things about this job is that with our constantly evolving wine-range there is always something new to try, and while January and February can be a little quieter on that front, things kick up a gear in Spring with an abundance of newly-made wines in the tasting room awaiting sign-off and lots of new wines hitting the shelves in our stores.

  • Spring Sipping

    It’s hard to believe that the first day of Spring falls next week, ‘Tempus Fugit’ and all that aside, I thought now would be the perfect time to focus in on some fresh white wine choices to pair with the lighter dishes that will soon be appearing on our tables.

    Of course, if I wanted to play it safe we could look at Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio, I could certainly reco...

  • Game On (But not for much longer!)

     

    With the open season for wild game birds drawing to a close at the end of the month, I thought now would be a good time to take a last look at some wine pairings, before these delicious seasonal delights disappear from our tables until the Autumn.

    The received wisdom dictates that I should be recommending well-aged bottles of fine red Burgundy and Northern Rhône Syrah, and w...

  •  Happy Hallo-Wine!

     While you could be easily forgiven for thinking that Halloween treats were only for the kids calling to your door, there is always room for some grown-up treats as well.

    I know I for one will be treating myself to a glass or two of red wine over the bank holiday weekend, and my choice will almost certainly come from the delicious selection I have picked out below.
