  • Huazo de Sauzal is now in stock!

    For the lucky few who had the opportunity to taste the new, boutique Chilean wines on our portfolio at our Showcase earlier this year, you won't have forgotten Renan Cancino's Huaso de Sauzal wines - they are completely unique, full of character and have amazing purity.

    Wine Director, Dirce Vianna Junior MW had this to say when they arrived:

    "Renan Cancino, a quietly spoken and humble man, is highly rated in Chile for his unique style of winemaking.

    I asked a friend of mine, Hector Riquelme - considered one of the best sommeliers in Chile - what he thought, and he told me how much he loves Renan's wines and described the winery as a place where time stopped 300 years ago.

    This is without a doubt my take-home wine of the month - one to impress my family and friends with."


    About Huaso de Sauzal

    Renán Cancino makes very traditional wine in a small town called Sauzal in the Maule region. He works with vines that are up to 300 years old and produces wines without any modern technology, spraying or sulphites. Fermentation takes place in outside lagares, destemming is manual using a bamboo salander, natural yeasts, and a gentle press using rocks (placed on top of the grapes).

    Refriega 2012Renán studied agronomy and gained experience in a co-operative before setting up on his own in Sauzal - drawn to the area for its cooler climates and granite-based soils. He produces three wines, and his País is among the best in Chile, in his own words, “My País is for the dinner table, not the terrace.”

    Starting as they mean to go on – you’ll be welcomed with a glass of fizz and something delicious from the kitchen.

    This menu is designed to transport you to the very west corner of Sicily, where Planeta Winery is established as one of the most dynamic wineries in the country – imagine yourself on the sun drenched terrace as you indulge in some delicious Italian wines.

    Pull up a pew at the feasting table and enjoy your second wine of the day - a glass (or even two – it’s Bank Holiday!) of Planeta Etna Bianco 2015, perfectly matched with a clean, crisp heritage tomato, artichoke and anchovy salad.

    Your main course will be a juicy pork tenderloin wrapped in parma ham with parmesan polenta, seasonal green bean and truffle salad, enjoyed alongside the iconic, creamy Planeta Chardonnay 2014, which complements the pork impeccably.

    The final wine to be cracked open is the lively Planeta Santa Cecilia 2010 - matched with vanilla panna cotta, poached rhubarb and British strawberries.

    Celebrate the fact you don’t have to go to work the next day whilst letting LWW take care of you - we’ll ensure your glass never runs dry.

    Starting as they mean to go on – you’ll be welcomed with a glass of fizz and something delicious from the kitchen.

    All the wines for this feast have been sourced from the famed winery – Trapiche – renowned for their old world styles of big, rich wines. This banquet will transport you to the Trapiche winery, nestled amongst olive groves and vineyards in the heart of Argentina's wine capital Mendoza, and will draw on the big flavours of Argentinian food.

    Once you're comfortably seated at their feasting tables, you'll start with beef carpaccio, green bean and truffle roulade – served with a sorrel and red wine reduction perfectly paired with the elegant, well-ripened Melodias Winemakers Selection Chardonnay 2014. Next is braised beef short rib – served with smoked sweetcorn, black bean salsa and spicy polenta fritters rounded off with Trapiche’s signature wine -  Melodias Winemakers Selection Malbec 2014.

    The final course is decadence itself – the DDC chocolate brownie (no – you can’t have this for every course) served with salted caramel and peanut butter parfait. Paired with a Melodias Winemakers Selection Pinot Noir 2014 - this is literally heaven.

    Disappearning Dining Club

    Join them on Friday night for a sparkling Italian evening with Ferrari (no, not that Ferrari, but one equally au fait to the art of Italian living).

    Giulio Ferrari’s wines are inspired by Champagne, but with Italian panache – and so this menu takes a decadent twist, whilst still being light and moreish – ideal for Friday night feasting.

    Starting as they mean to go on – you’ll be welcomed with your first glass of fizz and something delicious from the kitchen.

    Once you’ve taken a seat at their feasting table, you’ll sip on a glass of Ferrari Maximum Brut NV - an elegant fizz that pairs perfectly with the ceviche of octopus, bream and seasonal rhubarb starter.

    Next you’ll be quaffing the Ferrari Perlé 2008, alongside a main course of roast Orpington chicken with pea and truffle quinoa risotto – nothing too heavy here, before moving onto the light, bright Ferrari Maximum Rosé NV paired with a delicious vanilla bavaroise, saffron poached pear and an oat crumble.

    Sit back, let LWW take care of you and ensure your glass never runs dry.

  • Disappearing Dining Club's Alsace Twilight Banquet with Trimbach

    Disappearing Dining Club have partnered with LWW 2016 and four of our fantastic producers to host a series of candle-lit suppers where the wine flows freely in their own private dining room at a transformed, exposed-brick warehouse above Devonshire Square.

    Disappearning Dining Club

    Starting as they mean to go on – you’ll be welcomed with a glass of fizz and something delicious from the kitchen.

    Next, pull up a chair at the feasting table and be transported to the medieval town of Ribeauville, home of legendary Alsace producer Trimbach.

    Even after 13 generations, the Trimbachs of 2015 remain true to the philosophy handed down to them by their 19th century ancestor, Frédéric Emile (the man who put the “F.E.” into F. E. Trimbach).  In stylistic terms, that means wines that are typically made to a bone-dry template, strong on structure, longevity and fruit, with unparalleled elegance, balance and food-friendly versatility.

    From the zesty freshness of Trimbach Pinot Blanc to the rich opulence of Clos Sainte Hune Riesling – one of the region’s greatest wines – Trimbach offers a pure reflection of the sun-warmed, limestone-dominated vineyards surrounding Ribeauvillé, the medieval town that has been the family’s home for nearly a century.

    The lightest of the menus – they're drawing on light, lemony flavours to transport you to the sun-warmed vineyards of Alsace.

    Starting with their zesty, fresh Riesling 2013, paired with ham hock and fois gras roulade, this is followed by Trimbach’s incredible Pinot Noir Réserve 2013 with Bermondsey-smoked salmon, north Atlantic prawns, seasonal asparagus and Lemon Moussoline. Dessert comes in the form of a lemon & salt liquorice Eton Mess alongside the cream of the crop: the opulent Trimbach Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile 2009, from this prestigious winemaker.

    Sit back, let LWW take care of you and ensure your glass never runs dry.
