  • Hot off the Press!

    I’d like to use my blog this week to draw your attention to some of our wines which have been reviewed in the Irish Press over the last few Month.

    Julia Florista Branco 2016 (€7.95 down from €9.95) “A multi-regional blend of grape varieties. Light, soft and very pleasantly fruity. Drink solo or with summer salads.”  - John Wilson, Irish times, May 5th

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Autumnal Reds in our Annual Wine Sale

    There may still be plenty of sunshine about, but It is fair to say that autumn has now taken hold and as the leaves are falling and the evenings begin to draw in, our appetites tend to move towards richer, more robust dishes, the same goes for our wines, so I have chosen below a selection from our Annual Wine Sale, all which are suited to roasts, hearty casseroles and cosy evenings in...

  • Our Sale Wines in the Press.

    When putting together the line-up for our Annual Wine Sale, we were certain that we were going with the strongest selection yet, nevertheless, it is great to have that confidence re-affirmed with a huge number of reviews in the Press, some of which I have picked out below.

  • 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...
