  • And now for something Completely Different!

    There are many thousands of grape varieties planted in a vast array of regions worldwide, Italy alone accounts for over a thousand, yet when it comes to choosing a wine, most of us invariably fall back on a very small selection of old favourites.

  • 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...

  • Top picks from our Italian Wine Sale

    With our Italian wine sale kicking off this Friday the 9th , I thought now would be the perfect time to take a whistle-stop tour through Italy’s wine regions and look at some of the wines produced therein.

    We start our journey in the Northwest, in the region of Piedmont which is home not just to Italy’s finest reds; Barolo and Barbaresco, but also to one of the country’s ...

  • 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 ...
