Tiberi - 'L Bianco, 2019
Perfect to drink right away! It is a light, drinkable and a very representative Umbrian white wine. You can taste the salt sensations and the freshness that come from the promixity of the sea. Definitly the best choice for those warm days.
Conestabile della Staffa - Mosso Sparkling, NV
It is an elegant complexity and surprising depth of flavour. As a natural winemaker he has to sacrifice a lot of control anyway, with no conventional wine tricks, additives, dyes or flavourings to reach for if things don’t go to plan
Podere Sassi - Coraggio, 2019
‘Corragio’ means ‘courage’ and this wine speaks of the will of Leonardo and his family to take the plunge into making natural wines that are free from flavour-fixing additives, preservatives and synthetic chemicals. Podere Sassi is a beautiful little spot on the border with Umbria, they only produce 15,000 bottles in total of their four handmade wines that are as natural as natural can be.
Conestabile della Staffa - Grecorange, 2020
So natural, beautiful, fun, exotic yet traditional. It is perfect for hot summer days! This wine is made in the most natural way with the native grape Grechetto without technology. Conestabile della Staffa is a truly inspirational history of one of the best winemarkers for Natural wine.
Colle Formica - Formica Pazza Rosé, 2019
This is joyous, full of sour cherry fruit and racy acid. A bit creamy, very moreish. This 100% Sangiovese with refermentation in bottle and minimal sulfites, wine decanting and bottling are done in accordance with the moon.
Sassara - Chiaretto Ciaro, 2020
Light, bright, elegant, with notes of pomegranate, grapefruit, tangerine and wet stone.This supremely crisp, refreshing and well-balanced rosato which we think is the taste of Spring and the colour of Summer.
Alta Pavina - Citius, 2016
The Ortega brothers Diego and Hugo are the mad men behind the planting of Pinot Noir in Castilla y Leon. The secret is the cool influenced vineyard site they chose and the expertise onboard of one Claude Bourgignon, the vineyard manager at the Romanee-Conti. Yep, this is Spain's DRC!
Describing how this is made highlights the incredible value here! Most vines are over 50 years old meaning low yields and high-quality grapes. 10% of the wine is wild fermented in old oak barrels and the whole wine spends 2 months on lees before bottling.
Darriaud - Cotes du Rhone, 2020
Darriaud Rose is made using hand harvested grapes subjected to the Provencal ‘rosé de presse’ method. This very gentle pressing extracts as much aroma and flavour as possible with the least amount of tannins. The wine is vinified at cool temperatures in stainless steel vats to preserve these delicate aromas and flavours.
Hochar Pere & Fils, Gaston Hochar, 2017
A real Lebanese treat that will wow with its rich texture and long length. Fresh acidity and soft tannins make for an elegant wine that will last long in the momery as well as the palate - and even the cellar. Harmonious alongside slow-roasted beef dishes.
Te Whare Ra, Anna & Jason Flowerday, 2019
An ideal partner for all things seafood, this organically farmed New Zealand Sauvignon offers great freshness and a deal more subtlety than many of its compatriots. Tropical, fresh with citrus and elderflower.
Pet Nat Davenport White, 2020
Gently sparkling, this is a wondefurl accompaniment to a summer barbecue. As an aperitif or served alongside shellfish, it's beautifully floral with a cider-like edge. Apples, melons and elderflower melt slowly on the tongue.
Bourgogne Chardonnay 'Les Charmes', Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair, 2017
Peach and golden apple fruit with a light chalky mineral character. Very elegant indeed. Perfect with grilled white fish, roasted vegetables… and a bit of sunshine.
Barbera d'Asti DOCG, Cantina del Pino, 2017
Juicy, fresh and full of black cherries and dark chocolate that are a hallmark of the Barbaresco grape. Perfect on it's own or with food. From one of the historic properties of Barbaresco.
Château Maison Neuve, Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux, 2015
A wonderfully complex and very classic style of 'claret' from an excellent vintage. A high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon (90%, unusual at this level) offers up cassis and cigarbox notes. A wine that will benefit from an hour or two of air to breathe and cries out for an accompaniment of beef or lamb
Motta del Lupo, Paolo Petrilli, 2019
Paolo Petrilli is famous for his tomatoes, regarded as some of the best in Italy, but he's clearly a dab hand at making wine too. From Puglia this is a blend based on the local Nero di Troia grape that offers up lots of cherry fruit, wild herbs and dried floral notes.
Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition Rouge, Domaine Bosquet des Papes, 2016
A complex, full-bodied and spicy red wine with aromas of ripe plum fruit, savoury wild herbs and old leather. Round and plush on the palate with with a complex savoury finish.
Beausejour Les Grenettes, 2018
Made from a single-vineyard of 25-year old vines, this Touraine Sauvignon Blanc shows great balance and concentration. After hand-picking, grapes undergo direct pressing followed by low temperature fermentation. This is a terrifically pure and fresh wine with a minerally edge that lingers on the mouth-watering finish.
Caespes Colli Tortonesi, Poggio, 2018
Caespes is a Latin word that refers to the soil or, more broadly, the land in which these vines are planted. While other producers age Timorasso in wood, Ezio only uses stainless steel to preserve the fruit purity. Grapes are gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. This is an explosive wine with the right balance between fruit and minerality. The Timorasso is the hidden gem of Northern Italy, an exquisite grape for an elegant palate.
Colet Gran Cuvee Rosé, 2016
The fruit for all of Colet’s wines is entirely sourced from their own estate in Pacs del Penedès and Sant Marti Sarroca. A coral pink coloured cava with a decent creamy mousse that's perfect for memorable meals.
Gaintza Txakolina Rosado, 2019
Grown on calcareous clay soil, the vineyards are situated at 300 meters from the Cantabrian sea. It's made in very small quantities due to the rarity of the red Hondarrabi Beltz grape, a relative of Cabernet Franc, that gives the colour. The fresh red cherry and cranberry are the perfect match for spring nights.
Sorelle Bronca Modi, Prosecco, NV
Estate-bottled Prosecco that is vivacious and elegant with a very fine, lively perlage. Fresh, dry and fragrant with an intense nose. It's delicious on a hot summer evening as the perfect aperitif.
Rémy Leroy - Brut Nature, NV
A rich Champagne reflecting the dominance of Pinot Noir and low yields of the vines. The inviting amber hue stems from high anthocyanin levels in the ripe Pinot Noir. It's perfect for summer days and celebrations.
Casa Raia Bevilo, 2013
Casa Raia is located near the medieval town of Montalcino. The nine hectare estate produces only natural wines and the goal is to maintain the biodiversity and natural balance of the vines. This is a full-bodied, well-balanced wine with soft tannins and a long, rich finish for memorable moments.
De Bartoli Pietra Nera, 2014
This white wine is perfect on its own or with creamy dishes of fish or chicken. It has a vibrant nose with a pronounced aroma reminiscent of the Muscat grape. Medium bodied with refreshing acidity, the perfect match for warm days.

Dark raisins, figs, and glace cherry, this rich Port is full of dark fruits and warm spices with a sweet, luscious finish that goes brilliantly with mature cheddar and Caerphilly cheese.

Toasted walnut, baked peach, cloves and lemon marmalade. This nutty and aromatic Port loves smoked fish and strong cheese. The perfect partner for cool autumn evenings.
