Wine can be a perfect match for cheese or it can all go horribly wrong, two …

    Champagne and Oysters may seem a bit extravagant for a Tuesday evening, but there were no complaints from the 12 people who came along to Corks Out Chester last week for an evening with David Green of Laurent Perrier. We tried through the range, pairing a variety of foods with each champagne, but it was indeed the Oysters with Ultra Brut that came …

    Blue is for boys and Pink is for girls

    I guess its human nature to compartmentalise things but I'd like to think we had moved on a little bit from 'puppy dogs tails' and 'sugar and spice'. I was reading an industry article earlier this week about the growth of rose wine, whilst researching for my in store 'In the Pink' tasting. In 2000, one in forty bottles of wine sold in the UK were r…

    Cheese and Wine: An Alternative Pairing Odyssey

    Cheese and wine go together like....well cheese and wine really (hadn't thought that through properly but there you go, I still included it in this preamble in the blog so anything goes I suppose).   I like cheese and I like wine but I find the snobbery surrounding the pairing of the two annoying and unnecessary.

    What we're drinking; Portuguese?

    A country of many intriguing flavours, cultures and colour. Portugal has been a go to destination for UK holiday makers for years however, their wine has never quite matched the beauty of the wines origin.

    Elementary: Whatever happened to Petri Wine?

    'Petri – The family that took time to bring you good wine.' I'm a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes, not necessarily the Benedict Cumberbatch incarnation but the 'golden age' of Holmes starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. Having watched every film they made numerous times I was delighted to recently discover a series of radio plays first broadcast …
