T-OINOS WINES: LIQUID ENERGY IN A BOTTLE

The rare grey-black marble that is found on the floors of Buckingham Palace and the Louvre comes from Tinos, a rugged Greek island in the Aegean Sea. So sought after, this marble is now UNESCO protected – which is the reason you will see giant boulders in the middle of vineyards, with rows of vines […]

RESPECT FOR THE OLD WAYS AT I PASTINI WINERY

I’d read the comment ‘There’s more to Puglia than trulli’ – and of course there is – much, much more. But, it is still an impressive sight to witness a whole landscape constructed of these little grey, stone molehills, which (as would seem apparent) tend to remind people of huge conical bras. An army of […]

There are lots of awesome things about spending a couple of weeks in the States, but one of them is the sheer amount of excellent US wines available to me! You just don’t see enough Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs on lists in the UK - and here I was with about four different ones to choose from on one list. I picked a bottle of @fourgraceswine 2017 and it was everything I wanted and more 😍 A nose of cranberries, strawberries and raspberries with very subtle cedar aromas. On the palate, it’s juicy and silky with some black pepper spice. A really beautiful Pinot Noir!! ❤️ Has anyone got any US wine recommendations while I’m out here? Happy to scour the wine lists in the name of research 😄
🥂VAYCAY!!! 🙌 No bad hair day gon’ spoil this mood 💃🏻🍾😆

I just love everything about @lady_of_the_grapes in Covent Garden. Excellent wine list, a friendly, knowledgeable team, a brilliant mission and just an all-round awesome place to hang out. Last time @baileysaliani and I tried this Pinot Blanc, which was the perfect after-work livener! Juicy tropical fruits and a honey-coated but refreshing acidity - thoroughly enjoyable 💗🍍
So autumnal today! 🍁 Perhaps it’s time for a spicy red by the fireside later on? This @chateaudemalmont Cotes du Rhône is perfect for the seasonal transition - it’s juicy and warming with a little clove and cinnamon spice, yet it’s still light and uncomplicated enough just in case the sun decides to make a last minute appearance and you race back into the garden. I live for summer but there’s definitely something about these cosier months I love ✨
Now this was a fun night! Tasting wines available on @getwineapp - a wine delivery service that brings premium quality wines to your crib ASAP.

It has taken 18 years but now @toinoswinery wines are expressing the purity necessary to compete with some of the most beautiful Burgundies and Rieslings in the world. ‘This wine is not just from Greece,’ Guillem Kerambrun tells us, ‘it’s from Tinos Island.’ Read more about T-OINOS wines in the link in my bio 🔝
