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.

Regards to Romania-Turton Wines

Regards to Romania

Romania's long history of winemaking is down to its idyllic climate for vineyards. Now the 6th largest producer in Europe, it has persisted through centuries to the point where wines are now at their most available across the UK and rest of the world. Expertise in the cultivation of traditional French grape varieties such as Merlot, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, balances with its wide range of indigenous grapes, such as Feteasca Neagra (red) and Feteasca Regala (white). 
Stars of Israel-Turton Wines

Stars of Israel

Winemaking and viticulture has been recorded in Israel since Biblical times, with wide influence from Morrocco, known for its mastery of French grapes and blends styles. The country's trade was virtually wiped out in the 7th Century before only beginning a return from the late 19th Century with the import of French grape vines and establishment of viticultural education.
