Bordeaux

Wine from the Bordeaux region in France shows far greater diversity in character, style and price than many give it credit for. This vast region's reds range from lesser-known appellations like Bourg and Blaye, to approachable, early-drinking petits châteaux, more innovative communes such as the...

Burgundy

The Burgundy region in France is home to some of the world's finest wines. Reds are made using the pinot noir grape, and are usually light in colour with good acidity and pleasing perfumed aromas. These sensual red wines can take a while to get to know but are well worth it. White Burgundy is...

Rhone

Substance, generosity and sun-ripened fruit are the essence of wines from the Rhône region in France, which is split into two unequal parts: north and south. The smaller north – including the likes of Crozes-Hermitage and Cornas – uses the syrah grape for spicy reds, makes rich, full whites from...

Loire

The Loire is the longest river in France, stretching 1,000km from its source in the south to the Atlantic coast west of Nantes. The geology and climate varies dramatically along the length of the Loire, and, as a result, so does the choice of grapes planted and the style of wines produced. Whites...

Beaujolais

At its best, there is little that can match the fragrant fruity flavours of wines from the Beaujolais region in France, which isn't far from the more famous Burgundy. The overwhelming majority are red, made using the gamay grape, and many are even more delicious when lightly chilled. These are...

    Alsace and Lorraine

    Our award-winning Alsace range reflects the long and fruitful history we've enjoyed with this exceptional French wine region. Surprisingly, Alsace wines are still sadly misunderstood.

      Chile

      Chile is 3,000 miles long, spanning most climates, so it has ideal growing conditions for most of the world's grape varieties. It first became known for cabernet sauvignon and merlot, but now the Rhône varieties grenache, syrah, mourvèdre and cinsault are very successful too, as well as the...

        New Zealand

        Given the relentless popularity of Marlborough sauvignons, it might surprise you to discover that New Zealand only produces around 1.2% of the world's wine! Aside from sauvignon, the country is also increasingly popular for its pinot noir, syrah and aromatic white grapes like pinot gris, and the...

          Australia

          Given Australia's immense size (you could fit 30 United Kingdoms into its vast landmass!) it's not surprising that climates and growing conditions vary wildly, which is great news for diverse winemaking!

          Germany

          Riesling has many aspects. In Germany in 2013 it was aromatic, bright, fresh and bracing. In most regions a small crop of mostly Kabinett quality was made, together with attractive dry wines. Both are gastronomically useful because they go so well with food as well as making fine aperitifs....

              Argentina

              Argentina is famed for its bold and fruity everyday reds, but explore a little further and you'll find that this dynamic country is capable of so much more. A winemaking revolution in the 1990s saw Argentina's winemakers set their focus firmly on quality over quantity, so you're now just as likely...
