    Mark Shannon and his partner Elvezia Sbalchiero have lived in this region for 15 years and now create some of the area’s best red wines but it this white that I fell in love with. It is a blend of Fiano 60%, Falanghina 30% and Verdeco 10%. The Fiano clone used is closely related to Viognier and helps to explain the lovely textural feel of this wine. Pasta creamy sauces and white fish would all work well here.

    Made by flying winemaker Matt Thomson, this is an elegant fruit driven wine with lovely citrus notes. Alpha Zeta was set up by Matt Thomson & specialist Italian Wine Importer Liberty Wines in 1999 with the aim of producing modern fruit driven wines from the hills outside Verona.

    For those who think that Soave is just another rather dull dry white wine then I heartily recommend this wine to them as it will prove that the region has seen real change. It is a lovely drink on its own or will pair well with simple fish or chicken dishes.

    Made by flying winemaker Matt Thomson, this is a lively fruit driven wine full of red cherry flavours with a hint of vanilla all wrapped up with some crisp acidity that makes it such a good companion to a tasty tomato sauce.

    From a modern winery in Sicily this is a brooding dark little number with charming ripe fruit and a bite of acidity that makes it perfect with a good pizza.On the nose it is bright red fruit but in the mouth it is medium weight with hints of chocolate and a nip of tanin.

    Set up in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Vini Piemontesi, the leading co-operative in Piemonte. All areas of production, from grape selection through to vinification, maturation, blending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica’s Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese. Working closely with growers and cooperatives, our aim is to produce a range of authentic, well-priced wines from local grape varieties. The mainstay of white wine production is Pinot Grigio, sourced from the Pavia region south of Milan, Friuli and the Veneto, with the addition of Prosecco, and Grillo and Catarratto wines from Sicily. The reds come from mature, low yielding vineyards in Sicily, Puglia and Abruzzo, the source of some of Europe’s most undervalued and characterful wines. Our most recent project has brought Cannonau and Vermentino from Sardinia to the portfolio.

    La Dolce Colline Rose Spumante

    This is Pink Prosecco by any other name as it is made with the Prosecco grape (Glera) and gets its colour from the addition of a little sweet red wine called Brachetto D’Acqui. But legally it can only be called Spumante which is the Italian word for sparkling.

    Ignore all this boring legal stuff and concentrate on a truly fun and refreshing drink that is just perfect for sharing with friends in the sunshine. There is a fragrant burst of summer fruit on the nose that carries through into the mouth along with a delicate sweetness. The fizz is lively and the wine is well balanced and very more-ish!

    This is one of our best selling wines in the entire shop. Now Prosecco is currently tremendously popular but there are quite a wide variety of quality levels out there. La Dolce Colline is so popular because it is incredibly consistent at delivering vibrant fresh lemon scented bubbles with a soft easy going sherbet dab palate.  The mousse is good and tight so it keeps the whole thing refreshing.
