The government continues to make it hard for the wine market with duty increases, vat increases and the like.  We now pay £1.81 + Vat of duty of every normal bottle of wine, soon it will be £2.  With increases in the cost of bottles, labels, corks and so on one can understand why it is very difficult to find anything of genuine quality under £6, £7 or even £10!

That said wine making and vineyard management continues to improve across the board and wine makers are investing more and more in quality and regional character to get the best from their ‘terroir’.  The UK is a very good place to be a wine enthusiast as we have virtually everything here.  Retailers and merchants are becoming more and more competitive in a bid to win business in a massively saturated market so for those of you seriously mad about the grape; it has never been a better time to buy good wine!

From Buon Vino this month a mixed bag of some great new listings; including, chunky red Massaya (forget Musar) from the Lebanon, lovely new elegant reds from the Valpolicella area of Italy, some super Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire and the best value white around in the new vintage of Soave Classico Monteforte from the excellent ‘Cantina Sociale’ in the heart land of Garganega country.  Finally a couple of super Rosés to quaff in this splendid weather!

Happy slurping…….
