  • Wonderful Whites For Summer!

    The June bank holiday this weekend kicks off the Summer season for most of us (even though the weather may not play along!), and what this means in terms of wine selection is a marked shift from red to white as we look for wines which will work well with the salads, seafood and lighter dishes gracing our tables.

    It isn’t always as simple as that though, some whites are better...

  • Perfect Pink Wines

    As I write, the sun is beating through the office window, and with this in mind, I have decided 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, the main reason being that can be such good wines for food-matching, particularly with the grilled fish, barbecues and salads filling our tables just now. I have chosen four w...

  • Just Arrived!

     

    One of the best things about this job is that with our constantly evolving wine-range there is always something new to try, and while January and February can be a little quieter on that front, things kick up a gear in Spring with an abundance of newly-made wines in the tasting room awaiting sign-off and lots of new wines hitting the shelves in our stores.

  • Spring Sipping

    It’s hard to believe that the first day of Spring falls next week, ‘Tempus Fugit’ and all that aside, I thought now would be the perfect time to focus in on some fresh white wine choices to pair with the lighter dishes that will soon be appearing on our tables.

  • A Long overdue look at an old Favourite!

    Rioja has long been one of Ireland’s favourite red wines so I thought it was about time I took a look at the region and its wines.

    Quite unlike the model followed in other regions, the DOC denomination (Spain’s highest quality grade) for Rioja is not attached to individual vineyards, but in fact covers the whole region, which itself is subdivided into three zones: Rioja Alt...
