  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Just Arrived!

     

    One of the best things about this job is that with our constantly evolving wine-range there is always something new to try, and while January and February can be a little quieter on that front, things kick up a gear in Spring with an abundance of newly-made wines in the tasting room awaiting sign-off and lots of new wines hitting the shelves in our stores.

  • Game On (But not for much longer!)

     

    With the open season for wild game birds drawing to a close at the end of the month, I thought now would be a good time to take a last look at some wine pairings, before these delicious seasonal delights disappear from our tables until the Autumn.

    The received wisdom dictates that I should be recommending well-aged bottles of fine red Burgundy and Northern Rhône Syrah, and w...

  • A Taxing Issue

     

    Here in Ireland we have some of the highest rates of alcohol excise duty in the EU, and while I’m sure my colleagues in the beer and spirits departments will have plenty of issue with the excise rates being 2.5 times the European average, it is wine that is the most disproportionally taxed.

    At €3.19 per bottle, we are out on our own at the top of the table and pay more...

  • Top Tips from our Australia & New Zealand Wine Sale

    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.

    Like many new world countries, New Zealand and Australia have built their winemaking reputation using grape varieties of French origin, but to consider these wines as mere copies of ...

  • Meet Fleur & her Fabulous Sauvignon Blanc

    Insight, one of our absolute favourite Sauvignon Blancs is back on promotion at €12.99 from today.

    Insight Vineyard Sauvignon owes it wonderfully-aromatic character not just to the supreme winemaking skills of former Cloudy Bay guru Eveline Fraser, but also thanks to the vision of owner Fleur McCree.

    As you can see from the photos below, Fleur rescued an unloved sheep farm,...
