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.
Poiron Dabin | Muscadet
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.
Domaine d’Esperance Armagnac
Simon first came across Domaine d'Esperance and it's wonderful Eaux de Vies in November 2017 when on a visit to the region with the Bureau National Interprofessionnel de l'Armagnac or BNIA for short!
France | A Visit to the South West | January 2018
Always on the look out for different wine regions to delve into, we took a few days off to explore the exciting, slightly under the radar French region of Bergerac and Gascony.
Tuscan Treasures | Rignana and Le Fonti
The highlight of our visit to Tuscany in 2014 were the wines from Fattoria Rignana read about this trip here! Two years later, in the Autumn of 2016 we visited the Panzano wine festival and Estate again to try the latest vintages.
Visit to J-L Colombo, Northern Rhone
The Rhone Valley is most famously associated with the village Chateauneuf du Pape in the South, however a recent visit to Jean-Luc Colombo in the Northern Rhone has highlighted the superb quality of the smaller villages of the northern Rhone.
