Chateau Angelus and Organic Viticulture in Bordeaux

The Wine Sleuth

When one thinks of Bordeaux, organic viticulture does not immediately spring to mind but one family in St Emilion are working to change that perception. I had lunch earlier this week with Hubert de Bouard (head of the family, his daughter Stephanie Bouard-Rivoal (Managing Director) and cousin, Thierry Grenier de Bouard (Deputy Managing Director) for […] The post Chateau Angelus and Organic Viticulture in Bordeaux appeared first on The Wine Sleuth.

What Makes Victorian Wines So Great?

The Wine Sleuth

Usually talk of trips to Australia conjure-up visuals of sunny beaches, rugged outback and Nicole Kidman. We very rarely think of Australia as a cool-climate continent, with low to moderate temperatures, and plenty of rainfall. However, when it comes to wine, not all Australian regions are equal. Sure, you have the Barossa Valley and Margaret […] The post What Makes Victorian Wines So Great? appeared first on The Wine Sleuth.

Spitalfields is now the home of new wine bar, Bottles. A joint venture by Italian food and wine experts, Franco Mancini and Daniele Marano, Bottles aims to showcase small Italian wine producers, indigenous varieties, and forgotten grapes.

The Field in Hackney, Plant based cuisine

The Wine Sleuth

When I was in my twenties, I was a rather strict vegetarian, almost bordering on vegan but that was when I lived in Asia (3 years) and it was a fairly easy thing to do. I stuck to it until I went back to the States and once I smelled bacon, that was it for […] The post The Field in Hackney, Plant based cuisine appeared first on The Wine Sleuth.

Join Le Petit Chef Supperclub on a Culinary Adventure

The Wine Sleuth

I recently attended a supperclub hosted by Le Petit Chef at TT Liquor in Shoreditch. Who is Le Petit Chef you might ask?

Juighissa, dessert wine of Sardinia by Cantina della Vernaccia

The Wine Sleuth

Sardinia. Honestly, I always got it confused with Sicily; an Italian island in the Mediterranean, has beaches and they make wine. That was, until my most recent trip to the rugged island of Sardinia, where I discovered a beautiful landscape of granite mountains, verdant valleys, rolling hills, white sandy beaches with aquamarine waters – those […] The post Juighissa, dessert wine of Sardinia by Cantina della Vernaccia appeared first on The Wine Sleuth.

An Evening of Meat (and than some…)

The Wine Sleuth

When I was invited to preview “An Evening of Meat” I wasn’t sure what to expect, it was billed as “… a unique and provocative dinner installation: a feast of femininity where expressive dance and indulgent food meet to thoroughly inundate all the senses…” However, I’m always game for new things and I do like immersive […] The post An Evening of Meat (and than some…) appeared first on The Wine Sleuth.

Postcard from Sardinia

The Wine Sleuth

I landed in Sardinia last night and was charmed by the dramatic seaside before we even landed. I know very little about this island other then it’s Italian and cannonau is the main variety cultivated here. I’m here visiting as part of the Sardinia Beyond the Sea initiative sponsored by Sardinian producers and the tourist […] The post Postcard from Sardinia appeared first on The Wine Sleuth.

Hay Shed Hill, Margaret River

The Wine Sleuth

On a cold, grey, rainy (read: typical) London January day, I made my way to the Boxcar Butcher & Grill in Marylebone for a few bottles of Australian sunshine. Owner and winemaker Michael Kerrigan was in town to show off his wines to the lucky ones of us gathered around the dining table. Michael started […] The post Hay Shed Hill, Margaret River appeared first on The Wine Sleuth.

Domaine Henry, organic wines of St Georges d’Orques

The Wine Sleuth

I was in Montpellier recently to do a bit of judging for the 2018 Milliseme Bio trade fair. It’s always nice to escape to the South of France in the middle of winter and when it’s to do a bit of winetasting, all the more fun. While I was there, part of my visit was […] The post Domaine Henry, organic wines of St Georges d’Orques appeared first on The Wine Sleuth.

The Avina Champagne Stopper

The Wine Sleuth

Over the summer I received the Avina champagne stopper in the post to review. I don’t really use stoppers much but on occasion they can be useful. Avina has developed a champagne stopper that claims it will keep the fizz in AND you can store open bottles sideways, which means you can lay them down […] The post The Avina Champagne Stopper appeared first on The Wine Sleuth.

Nicholas Feuillatte – Graphic Ice for Summer

The Wine Sleuth

Nicholas Feuillatte Champagne has got something new for the summer, their new range of Graphic Ice and Graphic Ice Rosé champagnes. I can be a bit of a purist with champagne sometimes (I do like my Grower’s Champagnes) but on the other hand, why not have a bit of fun with it? Nicholas Feuillatte have […] The post Nicholas Feuillatte – Graphic Ice for Summer appeared first on The Wine Sleuth.

Rum Fest coming to SW London at The Jam Tree

The Wine Sleuth

I like my wine, as you know, but sometimes, especially on super hot days like we’ve been having in the Capital, I fancy something ice cold with lots of ice! Yes, I’m talking about summer time cocktails and what’s more summery than rum? The Jam Tree  are thinking along the same lines and to celebrate […] The post Rum Fest coming to SW London at The Jam Tree appeared first on The Wine Sleuth.

Castello di Radda, premium Chianti Classico

The Wine Sleuth

Chianti is probably the most well known Italian wine brand around. We all think we know it but do we really? Recently I attended a dinner for Castello di Radda hosted by Italian wine expert Walter Speller. The dinner was at Sartoria in Mayfair and featured the wines of Castello di Radda paired with a […] The post Castello di Radda, premium Chianti Classico appeared first on The Wine Sleuth.
