    With over 60 wineries visiting Dublin for a fantastic weekend of wine tasting on Friday & Saturday, May 11th & 12th, this will be our biggest Spring wine festival yet with over 250 wines to try and I firmly believe it will also be the best...

  • Irish Wine Geese

    The Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations that take place all over the world this week are a reminder to us all that the Irish have always looked beyond these shores.

    Although historically this was mainly for reasons of political or economic necessity, these enterprising emigrants often sought out or created exciting opportunities for themselves in their adopted countries of resid...

  • Treat yourself to a Shiraz this Australia Day!

    With today being Australia day, I thought I would use my blog to celebrate Shiraz, the best-loved vinous export from the land down under. While this grape variety, known as Syrah in its French homeland is not native to Australia, they have certainly made it their own in the relatively short time since it was introduced to the Country by James Busby in 1831 and since that time the spel...

  • 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.

    And at this time of year, with the clock going back, and the evenings drawing in, it’s tim...

  • Autumnal Reds in our Annual Wine Sale

    There may still be plenty of sunshine about, but It is fair to say that autumn has now taken hold and as the leaves are falling and the evenings begin to draw in, our appetites tend to move towards richer, more robust dishes, the same goes for our wines, so I have chosen below a selection from our Annual Wine Sale, all which are suited to roasts, hearty casseroles and cosy evenings in...

  • Que Syrah, Syrah!

    Syrah, when grown in its Northern Rhône homeland produces wines with a deliciously savoury and peppery style, that make it a perfect choice for these late winter/early spring days.

    Ferraton’s Crozes-Hermitage la Matiniere (€17.95 down from €19.95) is a great example of this style, a beautifully balanced lighter style of Syrah in which elegance and very pure fruit combine...

  • 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...

    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.
