  3. Always wanted to visit the Andes?

    As much as we would like to during this grey and dreary British Winter, we can't offer you a quick dose of sun and warmth via a last-minute flight to South America. We can, however, offer you almost the same thing - six brilliant Argentinean and Chilean wines packed neatly into our Amazing Andes Pick of the Bunch case.

  4. Burgundy 2013: The Honest Grapes Parcels

  6. Bicycles, Burgundy and bons viveurs - Part 1

    Our Wine Director Tom Harrow has cycled around Burgundy. Here's his report for FT How To Spend It. “…Good company, good wine, good welcome, can make good people…” Such sentiments from Shakespeare’s Henry VIII sum up my last trip to Burgundy – if the final “good” can translate as happy, inspired, grateful, replete, slightly saddle-sore and mildly hungover. The latter quality I blame entirely on unnecessary quantities of 1960s Calvados from the bar at Le Pic in Beaune, and not on the array of fine wines enjoyed throughout. Continue reading →

  7. Wines for the wee beastie: what to drink with haggis

    Burns Night is upon us once again, and with it that eternal question – what to drink with haggis? Speaking largely from experience, whisky often leads to ruin far too early. While beer can make a fun substitute, the Haggis offers a chance to explore our cellar for one attractive option or other. Continue reading →

  8. Wine of the Week: Castello della Rosa's Medal Winning Pair

    This week's featured wine is actually a pair: a perfectly mature, medal winning twosome from the extraordinary Castello della Rosa. Made in the Orion family vineyards in the Northern Italian Province of Trentino, and only in the finest vintages these wines offer superb value, bottle age, and quality. Continue reading →

  9. 98-point Brunello 2010 En Primeur

    From our Wine Director, Tom Harrow: I have been vociferously enthusing about 2010 Brunello since tasting variously in 2011 and 2012 from barrel (also see my How to Spend It - Divino Tuscany report). James Suckling stole a march on other wine writers (much to their chagrin) and organised a pre-release December tasting of this recently-bottled vintage of the millennium, giving the expected stratospheric scores which have made it impossible to wait any longer to mention as buyers are now jostling for allocations.

  10. Be More Fiscally Responsible in 2015: Buy a Case of Champagne

    At the stroke of midnight on December 31, did you resolve to make better budget choices in 2015 (before ordering a £70 Uber to take you home)? If yes, we have a limited offer on Gosset Brut Excellence NV Champagne – a case of 6 bottles for the price of 5 - that will enable you to be simultaneously fabulous and frugal. Continue reading →
