The wines from La Giaretta have rapidly established themselves as among the most popular of our portfolio. Husband and wife team, wonderfully - though confusingly - called Francesco and Francesca, run the estate located in Valgatara, a small hill town that lies in the heart of the classic Valpolicella region. They produce the lot from the lighter dryer Valpolicella to its sturdier brother Amarone della Valpolicella, which are the two most important red wines in the Veneto, all the way to the sweet Recioto (amazing match with Chocolate by the way) For several generations, the winery has produced and bottled wine obtained exclusively from grapes grown on the estate including the Valpolicella, the Ripasso and the Amarone.

What to drink with... roast chicken.

A classic dish – you can never go wrong with a roast chicken. We tend to gravitate towards Burgundy in France, whether it’s a buttery oaked Chardonnay or a Pinot Noir. But pleasures come from further afield too: a New World Pinot Noir or Chardonnay, a Viognier, or that food friendly Chianti Classico. Then of course the wild cards can just pull off something memorable: our Rogue Vine Grand Itata Tinto (old-vine Cinsault from Chile), a white Rioja, Blaufränkisch from Austria, a Chilean Merlot or a trendy blend from Sicily. Roll on Sunday lunch!
