Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Elian Da Ros Ce Vin est un Fête’ 2015 (Terroirs €16.50 Reduced From €19.95)

I’ve passed Terroirs in Donnybrook quite a few times, but always seemed to be rushing somewhere and therefore not had the time to stop in.

Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Domaine La Baume ‘Elisabeth’ Viognier 2015 (SuperValu €10 reduced from €12)

This week’s recommend comes from a grape that is less well known than a lot of others, but can produce some outstanding wines, which often get overlooked. Viognier is one of my favourite grapes, although I usually find it in a  blended wine accompanied by another grape such as Chenin Blanc. It is a grape that…… Continue reading Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Domaine La Baume ‘Elisabeth’ Viognier 2015 (SuperValu €10 reduced from €12)

This week I thought I’d recommend something that would showcase the superior quality that can be experienced when you spend a little more on your wine. I actually bought this a few weeks ago, when I popped in to the Wicklow Wine Company shop on Main Street in the town centre. Master of Wine, Dermot Nolan,…… Continue reading Phil’s Weekend Wine Tip: Domaine de Thulon 1947 1er Millésime 2009 (Wicklow Wine Company €24.95)

Beginners Guide To: Burgundy

I’ve decided to develop on the inspiration for one of my previous posts. I’m delving a bit deeper into a region that still confuses many; Burgundy. Situated inland and one of the northernmost wine regions in the world, it can be a myriad of crus, vineyards, villages and departments to understand, even for the most seasoned…… Continue reading Beginners Guide To: Burgundy

This Is Not Just Wine…..This Is Marks & Spencer Wine

Marks & Spencer have always had a good selection of wine, branching out and offering a more varied range than most other supermarkets. And with Christmas around the corner, (I know, I said the ‘C’ word) their offering has just got a little bit better.

I recently attended the DNS wine club in Dublin, for the first time. I have been meaning to attend one of these monthly meet-ups for a while and finally made it along. This month the club was focusing on a region I, along with most people, am not as familiar with as I would like – Burgundy.
