Wine of the Week

Halloween and bonfire night are fast approaching, so why not celebrate them in a perfect way by choosing a spooky-themed wine?

The Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful match for a bonfire night beef stew, and the hints of mocha, dark chocolate, black cherries and cassis make it the perfect accompaniment to an autumnal evening.

Casillero del Diablo wines get their name from a legend dating back to 1891. A wine producer discovered that some of his best wines were going missing from his wine cellars in a vineyard in Chile. In order to ward off thieves he spread the word amongst all the local people that the devil lived in his cellars. The thieves never came back, and the Casillero del Diablo – the Devils’ Cellar, wines were born. The picture below is taken in the actual wine cellar in Chile where the story first began.
