Tillingham Visit 8th August 2018
On a bright August day I was lucky to be invited to visit one of the most exciting projects in English wine at the moment, Ben Walgate's Tillingham Wines.
Time for Provence
Wine Merchants often look forward to the different seasons, with each season a certain style of wine tends to dominate our sales. Bordeaux and Burgundy in December, Rioja around Easter time, Beaujolais for Nouveau in November - but one of my favourites is Rosé season, to me this indicates the start of the Summer!
Limited Edition Whisky 2018 Releases from Springbank
We have a limited allocation of some of the most sought after whiskies in the world from the Springbank Distillery in Campbeltown.
Equipo Navazos Tasting
I took advantage of being in London at the end of a long weekend to take in a tasting on leafy Upper Street in North Islington. The tasting was a range tasting of Equipo Navazos.

Part of visiting an independent shop should be the joy of getting personal, friendly and knowledgeable advice from someone keen to pass on their passion for whatever they are selling. We love sharing our new discoveries with our customers and frequently travel to different wine regions to hunt out some new unrepresented wineries for the shop.
Fattoria di Rignana Impresses in Decanter Chianti Classico Tasting
