    A surge in popularity over the past two decades has seen Tapas elevated from humble bar snack to one of the World’s favourite ways to dine.

    In recognition of this popularity Thursday, June 16th has been designated the inaugural World Tapas Day, so in the spirit of this new addition to the calendar I thought should offer some wine recommendations for all of you who are plan...

  • A Taste of Summer!

    At this time of year my thoughts always tend to turn toward rosé, for me, nothing says summer quite like a crisp refreshing glass of rosé.

    Deliciously drinkable on its own, Rosé’s star reallyshineswhen it comes tofood matching, probably because of the fact that it expresses some of thecharactersof both red and white wines.

    Of course for most of us, thin...

  • Treat Yourself This Easter

    In its deliciously tender spring-Lamb, the traditional Easter Sunday lunch brings to the table one of my favourite food & wine matching opportunities.

    Lamb really is such a flavoursome and wine-friendly meat, working so well with a wide range of reds, from the classically Italian vibrant acidity and cherry fruit character of Porta Nova Ripasso through to the rich, robust style of Bl...

  • A new twist on the Christmas Classics!

    When it comes to choosing wines for the Christmas dinner table we tend to opt for the security of classic pairings, however if you are prepared to be a little more adventurous, you can be rewarded with some really interesting and particularly delicious food and wine matches.

    With Thanksgiving being celebrated all across theUSA today and around the world by the American diaspora, I thought we should take a look at some drinks options for serving at the 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 traditional roast tur...

    Since that time they haveadded to the original La Morra Vineyards with estates in Serr...

  • Take One Grape - Pinot Noir

    Pinot Noir excudes flavours of strawberries, raspberries and black cherry mingledtogether and is defined by crisp acidity, Mike Raymond the character in the 2004 Academy Award winning Sideways movie was famous forhis outspoken views on Merlot, he also however summed up Pinot Noir beautifully:

    "it's a hard grape to grow, it's thin-skinned, temperamental, ripens early ...

  • Italian Food & Wine Matching

    Our Italian wine sale starts on Wednesday, which inspired me to have a look at matching some Italian wines to a couple of classic Italian dishes.

    More than any other country, the wines of Italy are absolutely made to go with food, often these wines have higher acidity, which allows them to work well with the tomatoes which are such a feature of Italian cuisine, bearing this in mind I ha...

  • Meet Fleur & her Fabulous Sauvignon Blanc

    Insight, one of our absolute favourite Sauvignon Blancs is back on promotion at €12.99 from today.

    Insight Vineyard Sauvignon owes it wonderfully-aromatic character not just to the supreme winemaking skills of former Cloudy Bay guru Eveline Fraser, but also thanks to the vision of owner Fleur McCree.

    As you can see from the photos below, Fleur rescued an unloved sheep farm,...
