    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.

  • Delicious Autumn treats on offer for just €10

    As autumn settles in, I like to savour every last opportunity to the enjoy fresher and more elegant styles of wine, before winter takes hold and my tastes tend to shift toward heavier reds and richer whites to complement the richer, more robust dishes on the table.

    Rosé Returns!

    Swallows filling our skies, BBQ aromas wafting over the garden fence and the gentle background hum of a distant lawn-mower; all herald the changing of the season.

    But for me nothing says summer, quite like seeing the new vintages of our Rosé wines arriving.

    And for most of us, thinking of a crisp glass of Rosé conjures up images of sitti...
