As with much of Eastern Europe, winemaking in Bulgaria dates back to the ancient Thracian period over 5000 years ago and continues at the highest quality level today. Often overlooked in the UK, we have recently refreshed our range to showcase some of the finest native grapes. Let's take a look at Bulgaria's key wine regions and their fascinating grapes.

The Perfect Wine For Your Curry

The Perfect Wine For Your Curry

We've been celebrating one of the UK's favourite cuisines this week - curry! National Curry Week ran from 4th to 10th October and although we may have a habit of grabbing a beer to match with curry, there are many wines that make the perfect partner too. With more wine producers from South and South East Asia bringing their own interpretations to the fore too, it's never been a better time to enjoy wine with your curry.

Here we take a look at what makes a classic Rioja so special, alternative hidden gems of the region, and what to look for on the label to help you better understand your Rioja wine.

Georgian Gold

Georgian Gold

For the next few months, we are celebrating the very reason for our founding over 13 years ago in 2008 - Georgian wine. One trip to Georgia sparked a love of less known wine and the setting up of our small shop. Today, we still specialise in Georgian and other wines that are unique, as well as traditional classics and modern trends. If you haven't tried a Georgian wine yet, what are you waiting for! Read on to explore traditional winemaking, native grapes, and unique appellations in the true birthplace of wine.
