Although Rueda is a tiny area it offers stupendously original white wine called Traslagares, made from the Verdejo grape ever since Moors arrived there in the Middle Ages. Like the people who brought the grape, there is an exotic flavour to the wine: notes of pears and herbs, particularly a hint of fennel, and a dry, savoury finish. Wines from Rueda are the talk of Madrid, so why not join in and be the talk of the UK by being among the first to try it.Read more

I found the Riesling I was looking for Jean-Marc Simonis and his family deliver exactly the style of Alsace Riesling I hoped I would find: crisply dry, a modern refreshing crispness, underpinned with honeyed, aromatic layers of complex flavor that make you stop in your tracks and think: mmm this is different. It really is different, it is a great answer to that difficult question of what wine to serve with Asian food, and, as it happens, it is an absolute steal.Read more
Most Portuguese wine producers make a range of red wines, from their entry-level, through their Reserva up to their Gran Reserva. Usually the wines get richer as you go up the scale. This approach was adopted at Lagar de Darei, but visitors and guests soon noticed that there was another, unlabelled red wine stored at one side of the winery, which they were sometimes offered to drink on site - it was known as “Dad's own blend".
This time, we are offering two wines at the same time; you can buy one or the other or a mixed box – it's up to you. The first wine on offer will be a Sauvignon Blanc from Menetou-Salon in France, priced at £66 for a box of 6 bottles, plus delivery.Read more

Rias Baixas is a beautifully green region (thanks to the high rainfall) of rocky coast and creeks reaching far inland, green hills covered in eucalyptus, and, in between, dozens of tiny vineyards, all growing one grape, Albarino, most often trained high above the ground, supported on granite pillars in the pergola system.Read more
Pecharmant (“Charming Hill" in old French) is a tiny area just north-east of the town of Bergerac, with a total of 400Ha under vine, with a unique combination of elevation above the plains of the river Dordogne, aspect to the south-west, and soil, including gravels and red clay.Read more
