  • Brilliant BBQ Wine Choices for the Long Weekend

    Two bank holiday weekends in a row with uninterrupted sunshine was always going to be a big ask given our changeable weather, however with the temperature looking staying relatively high, I know will definitely be taking every opportunity to get out in the the garden and fire up the BBQ this weekend, and deal with the showers if and when they come.

    Given that I'm  sure may o...

  • Looking through Rosé tinted glasses!

    As I write, the sun is beating through the office window, which has inspired me to return to the topic of Rosé for my blog today.

    Regular readers will by now that I am a huge fan of Rosé wines, and for most of us, thinking of a crisp glass of Rosé conjures up images of sitting in the evening sun on a terrace somewhere in the Mediterranean, which is all well and good, but for...

  • Organic Options in our French Wine Sale

    There are quite a few Organic wines included in our French 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.

    Their success can be put down to the fact that many Organic producers are now making innovative and delicious wines as...

  • The French Connection

    Each year France comes in at either 2nd or 3rd place in the list of the world’s biggest wine producers depending on the weather conditions during the vintage (although last year saw an historic low).

    However, it is fair to say that no country comes close in terms of their contribution to wine culture globally.

  • Wine tips for Easter Sunday Lunch

    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.

    You should aim for a red wine with a decent tannin structure, good depth of fruit and a finish that can endure as long as the lamb itself. The goal is to...

  • Bordeaux offers this Spring

    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 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...

  • Stunning Whites in our Annual Wine Sale

    In my blog last week, I picked out a selection of reds from our annual wine sale, so it is only fit and proper that this week I should turn the spotlight on to some of the Stunning Whites included in the line-up.

    To start off, I have picked a Pinot Grigio From the Friuli region of Northeast Italy where Pinot Grigio tends to be richer and more complex.  Puiattino (€11.95 down...

  • Last of the Summer Sauvignons

    As Ireland’s favourite grape variety, Sauvignon Blanc surely needs no introduction but as the wines tend to be so well suited to summer, I thought I would use this week’s blog to highlight some of the superb Sauvignons we currently have on offer.

    While France’s Loire valley can claim the title of being Sauvignon’s spiritual home, New Zealand is undoubtedly the driving f...

  • Wonderful Whites For Summer!

    The June bank holiday this weekend kicks off the Summer season for most of us (even though the weather may not play along!), and what this means in terms of wine selection is a marked shift from red to white as we look for wines which will work well with the salads, seafood and lighter dishes gracing our tables.

    It isn’t always as simple as that though, some whites are better...
