Family & Friends

Brand New Wine just arrived – Feudo Maccari’s ” Family & Friends ” 
This 100% Grillo wine was made by Dott Moretti Cuseri especially to be enjoyed with his friends, it was such a success that he decided to launch it in the market and we’re very pleased that he did. 
With the majority of Sicilian wines going into the bulk wine market you may think that this is going to be an average wine but ‘oh boy’ you couldn’t be more wrong.
This 2016 vintage awarded 92 points by International Wine Critic James Suckling with a nose that opens with hints of citrus, especially pink grapefruit, followed by delicate aromas of vanilla and cinnamon: It is fresh, deep, with a pleasant mineral component. 
And best of all is that Grillo is so versatile it goes with almost any type of food from fish to chicken, pasta and even a risotto. What more could we ask for. Online now exclusively for our Kings Members at £22.50 usual price £28

Sugar Loaf Sauvignon Blanc

​We’re pleased to say that one of our favourite wines is back in stock this week. Many of you will know how thrilled we are to be the only stockist of this wonderful wine north or London. 

The wine made by Kate Acland from her 26 hectare estate is handcrafted and won Gold Award at the New Zealand International Wine Show – the judges described it as “classically Marlborough… an elegant Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, grassy and mineral flavours, on a soft, refreshing palate” – delicious!

Our Kings members get this beauty for just £10.00 per bottle. A saving of £34.20 on a case of 12.

D is for … DOSAGE

Ever wondered how some champagnes are sweeter than others? Well here you go! ?

The champagne making process is full of D’s:⁠

Dépointage – the stacking of bottles at a specific angle prior to…⁠

Disgorgement – the removal of sediment on a bottle nearing the end of the champagne making process, but today we’ll look at…⁠

Dosage.⁠

After disgorgement, there is a gap left at the top of the bottle which has to be filled. So a ‘dosing’ liqueur made of a similar wine of at least two years old and carefully filtered to avoid any secondary fermentation is added. ⁠

Known as the “liqueur d’expedition” (shipping liqueur) this is the wine that defines the type of the champagne. ⁠

The “liqueur d’expedition” has pure cane sugar added, so this combined with the natural residual sugar in the champagne determines the different categories: ⁠

? Extra-Brut: 0-6 grams of sugar per litre⁠
? Brut Nature: less than 3 grams of sugar per litre⁠
? Brut: less than 12 grams of sugar per litre⁠
? Extra-Dry: 12-17 grams of sugar per litre⁠
? Sec: 17-32 grams of sugar per litre⁠
? Demi-Sec: 32-50 grams of sugar per litre⁠
? Doux: more than 50 grams of sugar per litre. ⁠

Certain wines contain no dosage at all. In which case, the void created by disgorgement is filled by wine identical to the wine in the bottle. Such wines may be called ‘Zero Dosage’, or ‘Brut 100%’.⁠

Who knew a bottle of bubbly could have so many elements! ?

Outside bars -another string to our bow.

 “Wow what a weekend!

We did our first bar last weekend at LeadenhamPoloClub’s summer tournament and had the best time.

The sun shone and the polo was fast, furious and exhilarating.

We had 8 wines on offer by the glass including Champagne and Prosecco plus 4 different gins. Our most popular tipple was our Lunetta Prosecco closely followed by Champagne Gremilet. 

Sundays great weather welcomed the most visitors and the bar was a great focal point at the event.

If you need a bar for a function please get in touch as we’d love to more of these.

Change of Venue for our Tasting

We’re delighted to have been invited to the Leadenham Polo Club Summer Tournament this weekend. 

We had arranged a tasting at the Wriggly Tin but we thought you wouldn’t mind if we changed the location. Polo starts at 10am and goes on until 5pm. Its FREE to get in and there’s lot’s of other trade stands there too. 

We will host a tasting at 3pm at our trade stand and the rest of the day we wil be serving chilled wines by the glass, Champagne, Prosecco and Gin and Tonics, so we really hope you can join us. 

Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th July. 

Should be fun!

Our Wine of the Month – July

Taking the top spot as July’s Wine of the Month is La Bohème Act Two Rosé!

Summer time is open air time, so if you’re heading for the park this month, this classically inspired rosé is a must have.

Created just 10 years ago by head winemaker Steve Webber at the De Bortoli vineyard in Australia’s magnificent Yarra Valley, this beautiful rosé is light, dry and pale.

With hints of freshly picked strawberries and a creamy brioche finish it captures the essence of summer perfectly. We can’t get enough of it!

A perfect accompaniment to watching the balls fly at Wimbledon, our top tip is to serve chilled on a sunny day ☀️

July special offer; £13.50 per bottle, Kings members £11.99.
