Winemakers Club, Otros Vinos and Wines Under the Bonnet by Inna Sirota

Having made rash promises more than a week ago about all the articles I was going to write, I promptly got ill. Those promises will be met, eventually, but in the meantime I was unable to make it to the tasting at Antidote earlier this week.  Help was at hand…Inna Sirota has provided some notes on her favourite  wines from this event. I hope that they provide some recompense for my own  inactivity. I’d like to thank her for generously giving of her time to provide a  record of this important tasting.

It’s a Wonderful Life (That You Bring)

I’ve been up to a few things this month that didn’t really fit into any of the other articles, and I thought I’d mention them here. They do amount to a free plug for the places mentioned, but I don’t … Continue reading

Zoo Time – Wide World of Wine Awards 2017

Real Wine Fair 2017, Part 1 – Austria & Germany

Real Wine is an event I really look forward to. Okay, 170 producers is an impossible task for anyone, and I reckon I’d need five days to do the Fair justice. But the Fair is very well organised (if you excuse … Continue reading
