Taste Explorations: Wine with Crisps

As a lover of wine and food I'm all for the classic food and wine pairings for example, mussels and Muscadet, steak and Malbec or fish and chips with Champagne (seriously you've got to try it). However sometimes you just don't want to cook and there's nothing better than a good packet of crisps when you're watching a movie, so why can't you eat crisps and enjoy wine AT THE SAME TIME? Here are my top ten wine and crisp pairings.

Focus on Flavour: Riesling with Food

If I could only drink one grape variety for the rest of my life It would have to be Riesling. It's the most diverse and complex white grape with vibrant acidity and tantalising fruit.

'Twas the night before Christmas and the Champagne flutes clink, such a magical time ...but what do I drink?

It's that time of the year where over indulgence is acceptable that extra glass of wine or two is encouraged, but with so many drink options and plenty of festive treats available what's the best tipple for you to enhance that much deserved Christmas joy?

Taste Explorations: Cuban Cigars - why all the fuss?

So, it turns out my first blog was somewhat of a success! Having very little academic interest in my school years led me to believe that writing wasn’t for me, but as it happens if you have a passion for what you’re writing about then it can be rather enjoyable.

Having deliberated over what my next subject would be I reached the decision to tackle Cuban cigars. Why is Cuba the first name most think of when the word cigar comes up? Is there something that sets Cuba apart from the rest?

Storing Open Bottles of Wine

In my student days, the concept of ‘leftover wine’ was, I have to say, utterly foreign to me. Any wine in the house was gone in a matter of hours, and I’m afraid I would have read an article like this one with utter derision.
