  • 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...

  • Exciting New Wines this October

    October may seem a little early in the year to be looking back, but everything in the world of wine seems to be coming a bit earlier this year, with many regions in Europe recording their earliest ever harvest this 2017 vintage.  Also by now, practically all the wine buying is done and almost all the new wines are already on the shelves.

    Led by our wine buyer Lynne Coyle MW, t...

    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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.
