Back with a Bang: Re-opening Holland Park

Back with a Bang: Re-opening Holland Park

We were pleased to re-open our Holland Park Avenue store last night after it had undergone a refurbishment. Over the past 18 months, we have moved to refurbish a number of our shops, to keep them warm and welcoming. As one of our oldest shops, the Holland Park Avenue site was in need of a … Continued


Haiti: Special Spirits

Haiti: Special Spirits

Over the last few years we have witnessed a heavy tide turning against over-industrialised food and drink production. On these pages at the very least, we have mulled over what it means to work with artisan producers who care about using local, organic ingredients–in the case of craft beer–as an ethical tenet of their business. … Continued


A Day in the Life of a UK Wine Merchant: Bordeaux En Primeur Week

A Day in the Life of a UK Wine Merchant: Bordeaux En Primeur Week

One of the most traditional aspects of the wine trade is the annual phenomenon that is a Bordeaux en primeur campaign. I’m coming to the end of my eleventh en primeur vintage so I ought to have enough experience to share some insights into the rather peculiar aspect of the life of a wine merchant. … Continued


Now The Dust Has Settled

Now The Dust Has Settled

Now that the dust has settled following our Summer Tasting, we wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our customers in attendance, and to all the producers who made the trip over to pour their wares and chat all evening. It was the first time in over a decade that we … Continued

My Top 5 Wines

“If I had a pound for every time I have been asked that question…” This old saying, as it related to every wine merchant, is always directed at the question: “What is the best wine you have tasted?” Normally, if I want to impress, I would arrogantly answer, “Oh, that’s easy: it’s the ’82 Mouton … Continued

Spring Joy

Spring Joy

Even the most ardent lover of all things cold, wet and grey, must relish the onset of spring after a long winter. The excitement brought by simple delights – such as the first asparagus, the Boat Race, and the first daffodils – excite and enliven the spirit, as well as raise the sap! As the … Continued


I Love Italy

I Love Italy

I love Italy.  I love its dramatic scenery, the honesty and passion of its people, its food and most of all its wine. Sure, there is plenty wrong with the country. The sclerotic bureaucracy, the corruption, a fatalistic acceptance of organised crime and a dark affinity to nationalism, the erratic driving and the often ambivalent … Continued


2018 – The Goldilocks vintage

2018 – The Goldilocks vintage

“Not too little, not too much…just right.” The global wine-trade descends upon Bordeaux every April, armed with the familiar cliché, “Can you compare this to another vintage?” 2018 is a unique vintage, Bordeaux has rarely, if ever, seen such extremes of cold and rain during the first half of the year, followed by a seemingly … Continued
