Praise in the Press

We know our wines are great, but we are always delighted when they receive praise from top journalists and wine connoisseurs.  Here is just a selection of our wines featured in the press recently.


Smart Dog Syrah £8.95 (usual price £9.99)

 "A cheerful, juicy red to swig with a pizza? Australia again? Nope, this one’s from Portugal’s Alentejo. Plus, a wine with a critter on the label is always a winner – my dachshund owning neighbour loved it"
Fiona Beckett – Guardian - September 2017


La Cetto Reserva Nebbiolo £14.99

"A wine far removed from the nebbiolo produced in northern Italy, this is dark and full-bodied with plum, blackberry and warming spices.”
Hamish Anderson – The Telegraph Magazine – September 2017


Julienas, Les Mouilles, Pardon et Fils £11.99

“Fresh and lively yet unforced and restrained with a fragrant red berry nose leading to a savoury red fruit intensity on the palate and finishing with a long, mineral-tinged persistence”
Highly Recommended in Decanter Magazine September 2017


Fleurie, Domaine Pardon £13.99

“Youthful and bright in character, with lean yet forward berry fruit encased within a velvety texture and rejuvenated by crisp acidity.”
Recommended in Decanter Magazine September 2017


Pocas Colheita 1967 £135

“Fresh grapefruit marmalade with a rather lovely hint of rancio on the nose.  Orange peel and soft, wet wood on the palate, which has a vibrant lifted freshness as well.  There’s a lovely tang on the finish.” Voted best Colheita Port in Decanter Magazine September 2017
