Small Celebration Mixed Case£32.68
Even though we shouldn’t have favourites, its no coincidence that these three wines appear at our celebrations, no matter how big or small, time and time again. We’ve even included a 5% discount!
What ever the occasion these wines have all risen to the challenge, the ‘only drinks champagne’ friend is taken with the organic Diamond Cut Prosecco (and even asked to take the bottle home, breaking out the fairy lights?), the ‘wannabe sommelier who thinks Pinot Grigio is flavourless’ will be converted to this high altitude Le Magnolie classic, the ‘hopeless romantic’ will be asking “where art thou get this bottle of Romeo & Juliet?”
Cantina Tombacco, Primitivo Rosato I.G.T. Puglia 2019£10.75
A surprising wine that blends the scents of the earth and the freshness of the sea, a blend of fragrances that reveals the liveliness of the land from which it comes.
Pleasant and delicate, with aromas of blackberries and aromatic herbs. The taste is delicate and balanced. It is persistent on the palate, with a fresh acidity.
This wine is ideal with grilled fish-based dishes and fish soup with
tomato. It is excellent with pizza.
Cantina Tombacco, Origine I.G.T. Terre Siciliane£20.95
What is Orange Wine?
We are all used to a choice between red, white and rosé, but there’s a fourth colour increasingly being talked about in the world of wine – orange. This doesn’t mean wines made from citrus fruit, but white wines that are much deeper in colour than usual, ranging from pale amber to deep orange.
With Mediterranean and balsamic notes of mint, rosemary and wild herbs, the honey flavour emitted from the dried zibibbo grapes is mixed with oxidative notes resulting from the maturation in the amphora. Hints of dried apricot, tamarind, vanilla, muscovado sugar and aged tobacco.
This wine that lends itself to gastronomic experiments: try it with goat’s milk cheese or pecorino cheese; with Asian food; or as a dessert wine paired with apple tart or marzipan based desserts – our favourite Bakewell tart.
The bottle needs to be open one hour before drinking.

Scuola Grande Amarone della Valpolicella£28.95
Amarone is one of the great Italian wines, and there’s plenty to choose from in that category. Made traditionally by partially drying the grapes for a fixed period of time to reduce the water content and thus concentrate the flavours, what you’re left with is probably the most intensely flavoured wine in the world.
Rich, luxurious, powerful – this is not a wine for the faint-hearted!
Pair it well with big, bold stews and casseroles, or even as an alternative to Port with cheese at Christmas or anytime!
