  • One man and his wine

    It's always a real pleasure, in these days of ever-increasing corporate monoliths, to get face to face with a real artisan winemaker. Such a man is Dave Palmer of the frankly hard-to-spell Skillogalee, who came to the Clare Valley from Wales via routes too circuitous to describe. A quietly passionate man, Dave makes superlative examples of Clare wines including of course Riesling - whose fans include Matthew Jukes amongst many others. Here's a clip of Dave not showing his Riesling, but his Cabernet Sauvignon / Cabernet Franc blend, called simply 'The Cabernets'. Delicious wine. And what a great beard.

  • Jamie Goode on Nero d'Avola

    Here's a clip of wine journalist Jamie Goode of www.wineanorak.com fame, in Planeta's cellar at their Dispensa winery near Menfi in Sicily. Jamie was much taken with Planeta's Cerasuolo di Vittoria.

  • The Gunnar drops in

    Andrew 'Gunnar' Gunn of iconic Elgin wine farm Iona dropped into the Enotria office last week. He explained how engineering can lead to winemaking via apple orchards... and gave us quick look at the freshly-arrived Iona Sauvignon Blanc 2008.[flv:http://www.enotria.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/andrew-gunn.flv http://www.enotria.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/ionasb.jpg 300 200].

  • Planeta Rose 2008 è arrivato

    Here's a short clip of Planeta winemaker Alessio Planeta (looking uncannily like Hugh Grant), giving a description of his delicious Rose 2008, which is just as crisp as the wine itself. The Rose has just arrived in stock here.

  • Scottish Tasting goes down a (snow) storm

    A record number of Scottish wine fans braved the snow to taste with the Enotria team and producers at our Scottish tasting in Edinburgh on Monday. Clearly a little snow wasn't enough to discourage these hardy folks and over 100 customers and prospects tasted their way through over 140 wines at the Di-Vine in Edinburgh. Scottish Sales Manager Michael Colquitt said: "We are thrilled with how it went, with more visitors than ever despite the snow and plenty of interest from all who came."
