    In its deliciously tender spring-Lamb, the traditional Easter Sunday lunch brings to the table one of my favourite food & wine matching opportunities, and in my opinion, this calls for a structured, flavoursome red wine.

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

  • 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...

  • A Return to the Classics.

    Along with most wine bloggers, I am probably guilty of directing most my attention to the new wines on the scene, all the better if they come from an upcoming or even a surprising region or if they are produced using a largely unheard-of grape varietal or winemaking technique. Not that there is anything wrong with this per se, but it would be a shame not to give a mention to the some ...

  • A beginner’s guide to the wines of Bordeaux

    Consideredto be the finest of all wine regions, Bordeaux however can seem daunting for some. In order to help de-mystify the region, I have laid out a few simple tips below.

    The first point of note is that all Bordeaux wines from entry-level right up to some most of the world’s most expensive wines are made from a blend of two or more varieties, primarilyCabernet Sauvignon, Merlot...

  • Spotlight on Bordeaux

    We have a number of Bordeaux wines included in our sale, but for today’s blog I thought I would focus on a particular favourite of mine.

    Château Fourcas Hosten is owned by two members of the Hermès luxury-goods family, the brothers Laurent and Renaud Mommeja, who have lavished money on upgrading what was already one of the leading estates in the commune of Listrac.

  • Organic Options in our Wine Sale

    There are quite a few Organic wines included in our September Wine Sale, so I thought now might be a good time to look at the category.

    Once seen as a niche product, consumption of organic wine is now growing faster than that of conventional vintages.
