As you might expect, all the food the winemakers mention is tailormade for Burgundy wines. Various molluscs feature prominently on both Christmas menus. While oysters are popular at home in Ireland, […]

Finding wine to match Christmas dinner is a high stakes endeavour. If not necessarily contempt, familiarity certainly breeds neglect; you might assume the classic turkey, sprouts and roasties will taste just as good with any old wine. Not so, my friend. I’m not saying you need to blow all your budget on bougie bottles, but […]

Staff Favourites Sometimes, we pick the wines for wine of the week with a particular theme or upcoming event in mind. Often, we’ll choose wines from a region that’s a little bit out of the way. Other times we want to draw attention to a producer who does something a little unusual in how they […]

Recently, it has experienced a surge in popularity due in part to the 2010 Emilio Estevez film The Way.

We visited the Domaine De l’Hortus in the middle of July, about six or seven weeks ago. From the moment we arrived at the winery the impression I got was one of control and planning.   Even superficially, l’Hortus is different to most of the other vineyards and wineries we had visited. The winery is […]
