  • Glorious Galicia: Lagar de Costa

    Galicia, located in the northwest of Spain, is riding the crest of a winemaking wave right now and their signature grape, Albariño, is leading the charge.  An aromatic and versatile variety that tends to produce high acidity, light-medium bodied wines with plenty of pear, citrus and floral notes, Albariño is proving to be a worthy alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.  Rías Baixas ...

  • Looking through Rosé tinted glasses!

    As I write, the sun is beating through the office window, which has inspired me to return to the topic of Rosé for my blog today.

    Regular readers will by now that I am a huge fan of Rosé wines, and for most of us, thinking of a crisp glass of Rosé conjures up images of sitting in the evening sun on a terrace somewhere in the Mediterranean, which is all well and good, but for...

    Spain is Europe’s largest gin market with an estimated 3.2 million cases consumed each year. If you have visited the country in the last 10 or 15 years, it’s easy to see how gin has become the national spirit where even the humblest bar could have a stock of fifty ...

  • Marvellous Malbec

    In just the last 15 years, Malbec has gone from being a niche grape that was largely unheard of, to now being one of Ireland’s favourite grape varietals.

    And while Malbec’s home region may be Southwest France, the credit for this recent success sits squarely with Argentina, with the World’s largest planting, and its own distinctive style Argentina is undoubtedly now its...
