Spring has Sprung (March)

I know it doesn’t feel like it, but I promise it is coming. I know it is still cold and we’re wearing coats outdoors - some are even still wearing gloves! It is coming I promise, the kiss of that lovely sun will bless our faces once again and when it does we’ll have a great glass of wine with it at the same time. Out of the four seasons Spring is my 3rd favourite. I hear you ask, ‘Why only third, Harry?’, well to be honest I love Summer (favourite) and Winter (2nd favourite) for completely contrasting reasons and...

Valentines Delight (February)

Well well well… the romantic holiday is upon us. Whether you are in a brand-new relationship or have been happily (I hope!) married for many a moon this holiday is important for almost everyone. However, if you’re single then just buy yourself something nice! There’s room for everyone in my mind on this lovely day. The thing is, when you’re single you don’t really get into Valentines day considering the entire festivity was created for couples to celebrate being together. However, being single myself for this one, I have found that rather than curse the card company that so-called ‘invented’...

Bargain Basket! Literally (January)

Okay… well it will be no surprise to most people that I failed in 2020 to uphold my end of the deal in writing a blog post for every month of the year.

So, the plan now is to basically do it all over again, although this time I’m not going to promise anything as that didn’t turn out so well last time around. I am not going to discuss the happenings of Brexit and Covid, because let’s be honest, I...

BBQ Recommendations (July)

We are British and no matter what the forecast says we will get that BBQ out. That is the sentence that entered my head when I wondered whether I should bother writing a blog about wine recommendations for a BBQ given the weather. We are a proud nation who will go out in the rain with nothing more than a flimsy shirt, shorts and flip flops as protection, just so we can taste the charred sausage that we will inevitably leave on the BBQ for too long. The simple suggestion that the man do anything more than cook the meat...

Seafood Recommendations (June)

I know that the weather doesn’t exactly scream summer anymore, but I thought that I would write this month’s blog about wines that go particularly well with seafood. You see, everyone always assumes that when eating seafood, you should just go for something that is nice and light - mainly so that it doesn’t overpower the fish. To be fair that is not a bad way to go by any means, however today I want to go in a little bit deeper to the ideologies that surround white wine and seafood. I generally believe (like most connoisseurs/chefs) that different types...
