According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the equivalent of 36 billion bottles of wine are produced worldwide each year, as a wine consumer, that’s a lot of wine to choose from. On top of that wine is more accessible than ever, particularly here in the UK, where you can pick up anything from a Sparkling wine from Sussex to a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, and everything in between these regions.
As we all know, wine, like art, is a ‘matter of taste’, there is no right or wrong answer. However, when you delve a little deeper there is a strong argument in favour of selecting a wine that has been made with great care and attention. If this becomes your number one pre-requisite, then anything thereafter is a valid personal preference, like being able to accept that a supermodel, sports car or work of art are beautiful for some people, but not for you.
Throughout the last few months we have been painstakingly tasting our way through an eclectic range of wines from across the globe. We have chosen what can only be described as a sublime range of expressive wines made by people who are genuinely passionate about what they do. This is in line with the fact that we are building a bespoke retail wines website, which is due to be launched in September. The range of wines will be diverse, but not overwhelming, and each wine chosen because we rate them so highly that we buy them ourselves, and recommend them to our close friends and family!
Our newest member of the team, Helen Tate, has come on board to help facilitate this new development. Helen is a graduate from Plumpton College, where she gained a BSc (Hons) in Viticulture and Oenology in 2011, she is also currently studying to complete her Wines and Spirits Education Trust (Diploma level). She has been learning about wine for the past 7 years. Alongside studying she has completed wine making vintages in the Roussillon, the Douro Valley, the UK and Ibiza. In order to broaden her wine horizons she has also visited wine regions in Northern Europe, Australia, South America and Canada. Before joining the company, in amongst pursuing wine making, Helen worked for a leading UK internet wine merchant, in a marketing and buying role.
Wine is all about discovery, and creating an understanding of your palate, we hope that through this new aspect of our company we can introduce you to some incredible wines, hopefully some of which you may not have thought to have tried before.
