2013 was full of success stories in California. There are plenty of impressive wines to be found and none more so than those made by Matthias Pippig and his team. We were so pleased that Matthias and Jamie found time to visit last year. Meeting them helped us gain further perspective on their wines....




The team at Richard Dawes Fine Wine, a young, yet extremely knowledgeable London based wine merchant, have compiled a list of wines that will be sure to impress ‘that guy’  (we all have one at our wedding ) and ensure that your special day is filled with merriment. 




For the first time in a few years, the three of us made the trip down to Bordeaux for Primeurs week. This is the week when merchants from all over the world come to visit the Chateaux to try barrel samples from the previous harvest prior to their release throughout late Spring and early Summer. The...

It is a great pleasure to be sharing the amazing wines from Sanguis with you. Winemaker Matthias Pippig’s first release from Sanguis was in 2005 having worked at various other estates including Sine Qua Non. Although there are several parallels to be drawn between Sanguis and SQN, both in winemaker...


In keeping with our nod to the classics by offering the fabulous 2010 Paveil de Luze this morning, I thought it would be a good idea to write up our fantastic dinner at Medlar in Chelsea last night.

The drinking windows offered by the main critics seem so far in the futur...

We were honoured to be joined by Eric Baugher, Vice President and wine maker at Ridge Vineyards, for the first of what we hope will many Winemaker Dinners last week. The Library Room at Vauxhall’s Brunswick House provided an intimate and dramatic setting for a most enjoyable evening. Jackson Boxer s...

Harwood Arms 1.jpg

I had been itching to get back to the Harwood Arms in Fulham following a very enjoyable visit before Christmas. So, I rounded up a few colleagues from the wine trade for lunch last week. If you haven’t been, the Harwood serves some of the most refined food available but is still very much a pub. As...
