  • Fireside treats for the Bank-Holiday weekend.

    As the long weekend stretches out in front of me, I am looking forward to a few days relaxing at home and a couple of family gatherings around the dinner table with some comforting autumnal meals. But one thing is certain, the fire will be lit and a glass or two of wine will be enjoyed.

  • 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...
