  • How are things in California?

    California is steeped in grape growing history and winemaking know how, the first vines were planted in 1863 by Spanish missionaries. The Californian gold rush started in 1848 which increased and the numbers of people arriving in the state and the subsequent demand for the local wines increased.

    Today California has an impressive Sustainable Winegrowing Program. It has far reaching objectiv...

  • Top tips for pairing with Turkey

    With Thanksgiving being celebrated all across the USA this Thursday and around the world by the American diaspora, I thought we should take a look at some wines for serving at the Thanksgiving dinner table.

    Of course, I know most of us won’t be celebrating with a Thanksgiving dinner, but I think it’s fair to assume that those of us who do will be sitting down to the tradit...

  • Our Wines in the Press

    In my blog last week, I highlighted some of our wines which had recently picked up awards at the big international wine competitions, so for today’s blog, I thought I’d look a little closer to home, and feature some of our wines which have been reviewed in the Irish Press over the last few weeks.

  • Lighter reds for summer

    Whites and Rosé wines grab a lot of the attention in summer, and even when reds are mentioned, often it will be a big spicy wine to pair up with a BBQ.

    However, there is a wide range of lighter red wines which really come into their own when the sun is shining and some of them taste even better when lightly chilled.

    I have picked out a few such wines below, all of which...

  • A Vinous tour through Italy’s Rugby Heartland.

     

     I’m sure, like me, many of you will be cheering on the Irish team as they take to field in Rome’s Stadio Olimpico this weekend to take on the Azzurri.

    And although the trip to Rome represents the longest journey in any Irish six nations campaign, it is also a bit of a stretch to consider this a home tie for most of the Italian side, as with their clubs they will be bas...

  • 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...

  • Pick up a Pinot

    Notoriously hard to grow, Pinot Noir has developed a bit of a reputation as the most challenging of all Grape variety.

    Taking into account the fact that Pinot not only plays a huge role in the production of Premium Champagnes but also that in its home region of Burgundy it produces some of the priciest and certainly most romanticised red wines in the world, it’s easy see wh...
