Welcome

New Europeans

Some boats have arrived, bearing new vintages of faithful classics as well as some all new labels. Along with a gorgeous new Rhone label from a great vintage, our penchant for Italy has added yet more range to this already overflowing category. Thanks to John’s diligent tasting trip to Europe we have a bunch of classy new wines from the ‘rest’ of Italy, this time it’s Montepulciano D’Abruzzo, Soave and the rich reds of Puglia.
