  • 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 ...

  • Italian Wines to enjoy this weekend.

    Ireland welcome Italy to the Aviva Stadium this Saturday, and hopefully, the men in green can kick on from last week’s drama in Paris and deliver the bonus point win we need to keep the grand-slam dream alive.

    Italy may still be considered relative new-comers the rugby competition having only joined at the turn of the Millennium, long before that though we were welcoming Ital...

  • 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.

  • A taste of ‘la Dolce Vita’

    Our Italian wine and Prosecco sale starts this Thursday, so I was inspired to have a look at matching some Italian wines with some classic Italian dishes.

    Italy probably produces the most diverse range of grape varieties and wine-styles of any country, but if there is one thing which unifies all these wines, it is a common vision among winemakers to primarily produce wines whic...

  • 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...

  • Treat Yourself This Easter

    In its deliciously tender spring-Lamb, the traditional Easter Sunday lunch brings to the table one of my favourite food & wine matching opportunities.

    Lamb really is such a flavoursome and wine-friendly meat, working so well with a wide range of reds, from the classically Italian vibrant acidity and cherry fruit character of Porta Nova Ripasso through to the rich, robust style of Bl...

  • The original Super-Venetian

    With a just claim to the title of “the original Super-Venetian”, Masi’s “Campofiorin” was first produced in 1964 and was the first wine to be made on a commercial scale that utilised the now highly popular “ripasso” process. It is also interesting to note that Masi was the onlyproducer making Ripasso from 1964-1989 – so they&rsqu...
