Wine of the Czech Republic

Wine of the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic has more than twenty centuries of viticultural history. An inevitable slump due to the political climate post-Second World War lasted for several decades, but the last two decades have seen dramatic development and recognition in both the native country and the wider European wine market, with further outreach other continents on the rise. 
Touring Touraine

Touring Touraine

The Touraine appellation sits in the Loire Valley of northwest France. Stretching approximately 60 miles along the River Loire from Anjou in the west to Sologne in the east, it's large size and diversity of terrain and climate means that many types of wine can be produced. We take a look at some of these exceptional wines. 
Strawberry Surprises

Strawberry Surprises

Fresita Strawberry Sparkling (Chile 8% £9.85) One of our best sellers, this blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Moscatel stands out, with each variety fermented separately before blended for a second fermentation to obtain the final extra dry sparkling wine base. Finally small, freshly-picked, intensely flavored Patagonian strawberries (from the foot of the Andes) are added to the natural sparkling wine, making a wine full of intensity, refreshment and strawberry sweetness.
