And unsurprisingly so: lead by our Wine Director and Master of Wine, Lynne Coyle, our team source over 800 exciting lines from across the wine-producing world.  From the classic Old World regions of France, Spain and Italy to the lesser known areas within Uruguay and Romania, we stand or fal...

  • Irish Wine Geese

    The Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations that take place all over the world this week are a reminder to us all that the Irish have always looked beyond these shores.

    Although historically this was mainly for reasons of political or economic necessity, these enterprising emigrants often sought out or created exciting opportunities for themselves in their adopted countries of resid...

  • 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...

  • Treats for the Long Weekend

    This upcoming long weekend will surely see many dinner parties, celebrations, and informal gatherings as we all take advantage of the extra day off. Now, normally on the August bank holiday weekend, my blog would lean heavily toward BBQ wine tips, but unfortunately, the picture above might represent wishful-thinking as it doesn’t look like the weather is going to play ball.

  • Que Syrah, Syrah!

    Syrah, when grown in its Northern Rhône homeland produces wines with a deliciously savoury and peppery style, that make it a perfect choice for these late winter/early spring days.

    Ferraton’s Crozes-Hermitage la Matiniere (€17.95 down from €19.95) is a great example of this style, a beautifully balanced lighter style of Syrah in which elegance and very pure fruit combine...

  • Many are called, few are chosen!

    It may seem a little early in the year to be looking back, but by this time of the year, all of the wine buying is done and practically all of the new wines are already on the shelves.

    Led by our wine buyer Lynne Coyle MW, the three of us on the wine team have tasted in excess of 3,000 wines this year.

    To say that the selection process is stringent would be an understat...

    We have 20% - 40% off over 150 exciting wines in our Australia & New Zealand sale, far too many to list here so I have decided to focus today on these two countries’ flagship grape varieties.
