New Arrivals from Tuscany by Panizzi
Panizzi are based in the Medieval Tuscan town of San Gimignano . Since they were established in 1989 they have built up an estate of 60 hectares across four main vineyard sites - Lazzaretto, Santa Margherita, Montagnana and Larniano. Their focus is on producing a range of whites from the local grape variety of Vernaccia di San Gimignano, that express the characteristics of the grape and also the vineyards on which they are grown.
Domaine Guiberteau | Saumur
Domaine Guiberteau is far from unknown, with the wines being listed in many fine restaurants all over the world. For its relatively 'new' found fame the wines are certainly making some impact.
Eric Bordelet | The Premier Normandy Cider Producer
Eric Bordelet was previously a sommelier at Arpege, a top Paris restaurant. In 1992 he returned to his family home in Normandy to take over the domaine, which at that point was a small patch of orchards in Charchigné in the heart of Normandy’s premium Cider producing area.

A Short Trip to Bordeaux
I was lucky to go on a trip to Bordeaux this Autumn. I was hosted for the trip by CIVB, the Conseil Interprofessionnel du Vin de Bordeaux, who market the full range of Bordeaux wines throughout the world. The trip aimed to give me an overview of each of the major areas within the region, visiting and trying wines from a variety of producers to give me an insight into the variety of wines that this huge area produces.
