  • Madeira is magical wine. It is quite literally created by doing all the things that any self-respecting wine makers tries to avoid, yet results in one of the most indestructible, and utterly delicious creations in the known world.

  • How to Choose the Right Storage for Your Wine

    For wine fans, a mere 3x3 wine rack simply isn’t enough to hold their collection.  Once you start collecting wine, you start to understand that fine wine needs more than a shelf in the kitchen cupboard or a rack in the pantry.  There are different options for storing wine so what are they and how do you decide what is right for your collection?

  • We recently noticed an article in the Sunday Times with some of Italian chef Giorgio Locatelli’s favourite things in life, which included a bottle of Sagrantino di Montefalco from a fantastic producer Paulo Bea. We have to agree that there is no finer choice! This is a pretty special bottle of wine – inky black, layers of lush fruit and deliciously savoury earthiness. Sagrantino as a grape has some of the highest levels of tannin, so requires a minimum of 30 months ageing in barrel or vat prior to selling, which contributes to its high price. But boy, is it worth it! You can also buy a fantastic passito dessert wine made from the dried grapes - a bottle of that and some gorgonzola sounds heaven to me. Continue reading

  • They call Piedmont the Burgundy of Italy and it has an incredible history.  The Kingdom of Piedmont, ruled by the house of Savoy controlled much of northern Italy and southern France and Turin was briefly the capital of the unified Italy in the mid 19th Century.  It is perhaps one of the reasons that Piedmont’s signature fine wine, Barolo, became known as the ‘Wine of Kings’.  Today the region produces many of Italy’s best and most famous wines, including Barolo, Barbaresco, Ghemme, Gattinara, Gavi di Gavi, Barbera d’Alba, Moscato d’Asti, the list goes on.
