2018 BRINGS NEW WINES & A NEW EVENTS ROOM G


oodness where did 2017 go! Our wine business had another good year, continuing to grow organically. In particular, we are enjoying meeting lots of local people, some of whom just enjoy drinking wine and some who wish to learn more about the fascinating subject of wine and where it comes from.


The main news in the wine trade at the moment is the effect the exchange rate is having on the price of a bottle of wine but also the impact of the devastating frosts that hit the Bordeaux area and other European regions a year ago and the subsequent 30% drop in yields. Last Autumn, we also witnessed many vineyards and wineries in California, Portugal and Northern Spain being destroyed by wildfires. The good news is that although volumes are low, putting pressure on prices everywhere, the quality is high and, in many regions, grape varieties such as Grenache and Syrah loved the conditions of a hot summer with just the right amount of rain.


We have spent the early part of this year travelling to several Trade Tastings sourcing those wines that are the best examples of the new vintages. Our aim is to increase the number of wines in our portfolio that deliver on flavour and value. We are particularly focusing on Italy and Spain where producers continue to challenge the French by bringing exceptionally well-made wines to the market. We can’t wait to show-off these new wines in our forthcoming free tastings.
