A Short History of Château Margaux

The Margaux property has been occupied since at least the 12th Century, and known for its wines – under names such as Margou, Margous and Margose – since the 15th Century. One famous fan was Thomas Jefferson, the wine-loving diplomat and founding father of the American Republic, who in the 1780s rated Margaux at the top of the Bordeaux hierarchy, a status confirmed when it was officially designated one of just four ‘First Growths’ in the famous 1855 Bordeaux Classification.

Grenache Greatness

Is Grenache the most underrated variety in the world? I think so.

Dismissed by many as ‘a blending variety’ or derided as a source of soft simple ‘tutti-fruity’ reds, Grenache has not always been appreciated for its inherent qualities. More

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. Due to limitations of the landscape, the region has only 8800 ha of vines, mostly growing in steep terraced vineyards anchored on thin slatey soils.
