Well, the Wine Shop has launched and I’m chatting to you for the first time about all the lovely wines we have for you to try and all the people I meet on my travels who are just as passionate – and unstuffy – about wine as I am.
We held a big tasting for journalists the other day and told them about the Wine Shop and there was a real buzz about what we are planning to do with online wine which, we hope, is going to be a little bit different.
First of all, we’re friendly. We’re serious about quality but very unserious about wine and the good things in life: great friends, great wines and great times. You’ll find plenty of classy, benchmark wines in our premium Wine Cellar Selection but also some gorgeous surprises. Once you’ve visited the ‘classic regions’ perhaps you’d like to take a walk with me round some lesser known areas. Could be fun. I know I’m up for the journey!
Secondly, we’d love to hear from you. Please post your wine reviews since that really is the best way for us to find out exactly what you enjoy, what you’ve tried elsewhere, or even what you’ve found on holiday and would love us to list online. I’m a good listener. I also like a natter, so please get in touch.
