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.
Chateau Maravenne, Provence, July 2017
A chance to visit one of our producers is always high on our agenda and after the huge popularity of the Chateau Maravenne wines so far this Summer we decided it was about time we visited the owner and winemaker Alexandre at the Estate.
Visiting Veuve Fourny Et Fils, Vertus, June 2017
Veuve Fourny has always been our most popular 'grower' Champagne and having stocked the non-vintage since opening we have become very fond of the wines. Last month Simon and I were treated to a fantastic cellar visit and spectacular tasting at the Domaine.
