Phil’s Favourite Wines of 2017 @ Office Space, Thornbury. 11th November. 12-5pm

Over the course of a year I try a lot of wines (lots and lots). Mostly they are good wines, very few bad wines (thankfully) and occasionally they are outstanding wines. You only hear about a very small percentage of them because most of the time I am tasting with an objective in mind. Often there are lovely wines that I really enjoy drinking but I don’t have room/purpose/customers for it at that time. The very best of them keep popping…

Summer Wine Tasting And Christmas Wines 9th December 3-5 pm at Rewine.

I've had so many requests that we are going to do one last tasting for the year. Like the previous two, we're going to just have some fun with Summer wine. And it would be nice to see everyone again before it gets super busy. Summer Wines The honest truth is that so many people have air conditioning now that you can drink a Barossa red in the height of summer. But, the food we eat does tend to change.…

Richmond Hill Cafe and Larder (15)

Valentines day is about romance; finding the one and celebrating that union. And let us face the facts, Champagne and Brillat Savagnin is a great union that we should all celebrate at least once a year. But what do you pair with Prosecco? Or Moscato? Or anything fizzy for that matter? Let's find out by sharing six wine and cheese matches. Wine and Cheese with the experts Celia and Blake from the Richmond Hill and I (Phil the Wine Guy)…

We will meet up at Beneath Driver Lane with three producers who are making great wine. The Producers Yelland & Papps – Barossa Valley It is a story about new beginnings;…

Winter Wines

Hail to those of you who drink in the seasons. Winter isn’t so bad if you embrace it rather than reject it, pining for the warm days. And what would you do with an endless summer anyway? Complain? Worse still, you’d never find a time to drink the great winter wines of the world. Full bodied, oozing with flavour, brimming with vitality and richly seeping to every corner of your mouth. Winter stews, roast meats, bold flavours. An epic Clash…

Super Tuscan Wines at Spencer and Co 3rd October 2018

The Super Tuscans It is time to share some more great wine. This time I keen to look at some more of Italy’s best work. Since their release, the Super Tuscan wines have represented some of the best wines in Italy and the whole world. The term "Super Tuscan" was coined to define the new wave of wines from Tuscany. Rebelling against the constrictive laws of the time, these wine makers moved away from the ‘boring’ to make thrilling and…

South West France Sud-Ouest

Sud-Ouest or the South West France is a wine area covering several wine producing regions situated to the South and inland from Bordeaux. These regions have a total of 16,000 hectares (40,000 acres) of vineyards in several discontinuous wine “islands” throughout the Aquitaine region (where Bordeaux region itself is situated). Lack of one central governing body, a fruit salad of weird and wonderful grape varieties and wines style probably holds these wines back from the mainstream market. But when you find…
