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 […]

Exploring Spain Spain is always at the top of my list of places to visit next, both as a wine destination and as one of the most fantastic places I’ve ever been. Unfortunately, I don’t have the endless resources necessary to explore Spain as I’d like to. The bills don’t pay themselves, and if I […]

The winery is […]

We love a maverick. There’s something inherently compelling about someone who plays by their own rules and succeeds, despite the disapproval of others. I really admire people with the independence to do something new, particularly if it’s unpopular at first. Judging by the careers of artists like Sinead O’Connor, James Joyce, and Bruce Willis I’m […]

A passionate dedication to a place is a characteristic usually attributed to French winemakers. It’s easy to imagine a proud and surly vigneron dismissing their neighbouring regions, and the wines those regions produce, with Gallic disdain. This fanaticism is encapsulated in the term terroirist – a winemaker who is committed to the influence their landscape […]

A Barbecue Weekend  You can’t deny it, the Irish summer is almost over. During the next couple of weeks, the leaves will start changing colour, the first grape harvests will begin in Europe, and the market for school books and uniforms will come alive again. Sadly, there’s no escaping the fact that summer is coming […]
