We’re off!

Well as if trying to run a fledgling business during a pandemic wasn’t challenging enough, we’ve also been building a new website over the last couple of months. And here it is. Bear with us, folks, this is still very much work in progress, but you can now use this site to make your orders […]

From sublime Chardonnay, to ridiculously good value

We’ve just been refreshing our Chardonnays. We got in two new, top notch Burgundies – the Rully in the picture (left) and a cracking Chassagne Montrachet. But at the same time we also just imported 30 cases of the ridiculously good value Extrait de Romarion. It’s a Chardonnay that’s been matured with oak too. For […]

Ardiles Priorat, 2016

Priorat is simultaneously one of Spain’s premium wine regions and one of its best kept secrets. We need to change the latter! It’s an arid, rocky region just inland from Tarragona in eastern Catalonia, not many miles from Penedes, the home of Cava. Grenache fans, this is one for you. Garnacha as it’s known in […]

A case (or two) of independence

We love the classics at Rise & Vine – Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rioja, Chianti and the like. But equally, as an independent shop of independent spirit, we love the left field stuff too – the minor grape varieties, the lesser-known regions, the smaller producers and the like. So we’ve put together 2 cases to introduce you […]

July booze news

After more than a month, we now have […]

A significant date

I believe it’s 16 weeks that have passed between the end of the Great British Bog Roll Buy Off and the start of The Summer of Love 3.0 – “The Daisy Nook Mix”.  Never has The Chemical Brothers’ Out of Control seemed more appropriate.   Of course, the big dairy date for this weekend is “Independence Day”, […]

This is cool

If you dropped into the shop last week, you’ll have noticed everything in upheaval once again.  Last week we had heating and air conditioning installed in the shop and cellar… just in time for last week’s mini heat wave to come to a grinding halt!  Whilst we were not looking forward to melting in the next […]

Father’s Day

Here’s a whole load of cases for Dad’s Day

It’s white time

This week’s featured wines are some of the new ones that we brought in last week in our first dabble in the world of direct wine importing.  We’ve brought in 8 wines that Lindsay and I enjoyed for years while we lived down in Provence and that I am now very excited to share with you […]
