Grenache Greatness

Is Grenache the most underrated variety in the world? I think so. Although it is the most widely planted red grape in the world, for many years Grenache has been overshadowed by Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir.

Journey along Germany's magnificent Mosel

The Mosel is Germany’s most famous wine region home and is home to some of the most beautiful, delicate and age worthy Rieslings in the world. This picturesque region follows the steep valleys of the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer Rivers that flow north toward the Rhine.

Overshadowed by the fame of its northern neighbour, it is nonetheless home to some of the world’s finest white wines and many charming, well- made Pinot Noirs that offer terrific value for money.
