Dear Wine lovers,
Happy New Year. Wherever you were for the holiday period I trust you had a  great time. Here are our latest articles and goodies on offer.

30 Best Wines of 2011

It’s my pleasure to present the 30 best value, quality fine wines we sourced for Shanghai customers in 2011. Many wines from across the globe landed on our desks last year. Some were selected by us and some were recommended to us. And they are all still available. In our book, value doesn’t mean cheap. It doesn’t mean poor quality, either. It means “particularly notable quality for the price”. All these top wines will continue to shine into 2012. Happy New Year.

How to choose wine: part 3; for ‘dummies’

Well…not so much dummies, as beginners. Wine is the product of sun, soil and hope; held together by water. It has the power to dazzle our senses and move us to other places. Grapes grow on vines. They ripen under the sun. When ready, they are squeezed of their juice, which is fermented to produce an alcoholic liquid. It is all quite simple really.

Second Taster Pack: TP2 (1st Tier Wines)

Old & New World combine with a distinctive range of styles at great value. It is difficult to believe that 1 or 2 of these wines belong in the 1st tier. It proves that 1st tier doesn’t mean 2nd rate. Some wines are so bad are in terms of value for money they can’t make it onto any of our tiers at all. I am rather fussy about those we supply too. This gaggle has serious, good quality award winning wines, from respected publications & competitions. read more…
