Tous les mois, c'est un nouveau thème qui accompagnera vos dégustations. Les vins proposés dans nos box sont sélectionnés par notre Maître Sommelier Jean-Michel Deluc. Voici un aperçu des sélections de ce mois-ci.
Marvels of the Mediterranean
Fond memories of being drenched by the Mediterranean sun, waves of crystal topaz lapping your toes, the beats of hits from summers past making their way through the winds. The mediterranean is, to many of us, a tale of summer holidays. What better way to ring in July than with a theme dedicated to the marvels of the mediterranean? The birthplace of wine, rich in beautiful ingredients and rolling landscapes. Take a taste of the mediterranean in to your own home with this selection of wines. Have a lovely summer!

Winemaker's Selection 2016
Skopje Wine District
It was in Macedonia, specifically in the Vardar Valley, where we came across the home to this wine; Kamnik Castle. The vineyards are 300 meters above sea level, facing south and near mountains. In short, it has the ideal climate for a vinayard. Made from vranec, merlot and carmenère grapes, this wine is fruity, floral, spicy, chocolatey and well-balanced. A beautiful discovery from a lesser-known wine corner of the planet!Robust Reds
Domaine Jonquères d’Oriola - Altitude 231 mètres 2016
Here's a new project from the Jonquères d'Oriola family, located in one of my favourite appellations in the south of France: Collioure. "Altitude 231 metres" pays tribute to the rugged, unforgiving nature of this appellation where vines are nurtured on steep slopes facing the sea. This cuvee, produced from Mourvèdre, Grenache and Syrah is a perfect example of what can be made here; a fine and delicate wine whilst still showcasing the Mediterranean nature of its origins. Delicious!Weighty Whites
