Chris Burr Reviews Black Stump Durif Shiraz
The Black Stump range of wines are a premium range from the hugely successful Casella family, who emigrated to South Australia from Sicily in the late 1960's. They had been making wine since the 1820's and have gone on to set up one of the most successful wine businesses in Australia. Now exported all around the World, this wine is a good example of what Australia can produce in skilful hands. I suppose it is not surprising that this wine has the rich weight (14.5%) and intensity, ripe round…

Great Value Wines From Majestic
What makes a wine expensive is not just quality or cost of production, usually very valuable land costs, but fame, being fashionable and well known, and also scarcity. It is sad that some of the best well known wines are often overpriced as a result. I don’t want to name names, as there are very good, worthy exceptions most of which have helped build the fame and reputation over many years. But there are wines coming from famous regions like Sancerre and Chateauneuf du Pape, to name just two…

The Ultimate Guide To Wine For Your Wedding
Choosing the right wines for your wedding can be one of the more stressful items on the wedding ‘to do’ list; generally the happy couple have a good idea about venue, food, and theme, but, frequently, the organisation comes to a stuttering halt, when the subject of the wine comes up. I say this with the experience of years of practice, with friends calling to ask advice for the planning of their big day. In fact, this has happened to me very recently; my stepson is marrying, a lovely, highly…
English Wine
Not that long ago, people used to scoff at the idea of an English Wine Industry but nowadays the vineyards that line the southern counties are going from strength-to-strength and more importantly producing outstanding, globally recognised wines. Yet still to this day, English wine sales only account for roughly 1% of all domestic wine purchases, and with such a great selection of stunning wine to choose from, we think these numbers should and could be much higher. Let’s start by looking at the…
French Wine Survey Results
We wanted to learn a little bit more about the perception of French Wine in the UK market. To do this, back in 2014 we conducted a consumer survey, which we the repeated earlier this year (2019) to around 2,000 customers. We asked them about their buying habits, thoughts and opinions on French Wine. The results were very interesting and we’ve picked out some of the key highlights here: In summary, it looks like there is definitely a growing appreciation for French Wine – this is demonstrated by…
Craft Beer Revolution
With their quirky names and vibrant packaging, you’d be hard pushed not to notice the explosion in Craft beers on our supermarket shelves and in our pubs. In fact, more than 300 breweries launched in the UK in 2016 alone*. So what exactly is causing this upward trend? Well it’s partly due to the fact that we, as consumers, are always demanding better quality, better flavours and more choice. We are spoiled and we want to keep it that way. Which is why we can’t see this momentum slowing down any…

About Gin
Seeing a massive surge in popularity over recent years, Gin is suddenly much more than just a staple behind the bar. It is a foundation on which some bars are born! Though it once lost its popularity to whisky and vodka, Gin has had a rebirth thanks to the changing laws around Distillery size. This has meant the rise in craft gins and in turn the varieties we have on offer now are vast. Not forgetting the emergence of new and improved tonic waters and other mixers which have been crafted…
