Well, it feels like it’s been a long time coming but both wines have now arrived in the UK and are available to purchase. I’m really excited that they can finally be tasted and appreciated by the people who have been reading all about how they were made.
The labels have been designed by Swci Delic, a Carmarthen based artist who quite a few of you already know. I’ve never seen wine labels anything like these before which I think really suits the unique nature of these wines.
I have put a tab at the top of this website’s menu which gives a list of STOCKISTS and the chance to purchase online. The wines only available in Wales at the moment although, if it is purchased online, it can be delivered anywhere in the UK.
100% Garnatxa made in the Priorat.
This is one of the best growing areas for Grenache (or Garnatxa) in the world and this has allowed me to make a single varietal from a fantastic grape variety which is often undervalued and lost within blends. I only made 300 bottles of this (one barrel) so I imagine it will not be available for very long. If you want to have a look at the red wine and find out more information, then just click HERE.
100% Arinto dos Açores made on Pico Island, Azores
The island of Pico (in the Azores) is a UNESCO world heritage site for viticulture and the wines have a unique sense of place due to the climate and viticultural practices. For more information on the white wine and to see a picture, click HERE.
I’m really happy with both wines and feel like they have been worth all the hard work and I’m glad to have been able to share the reasoning behind my wine making decisions with you. Remember, if you want to look in detail at all the decisions behind the wines and see their development over time, then you can look at the archived blog posts at the right hand side of the page.
I’ll let you know if any more wine is in the pipeline….
