Californian wines have undergone a rapid transformation over the past decade. The ‘new wave’ revolution has highlighted producers’ emphasis on making elegant, nuanced wines with a definite sense of place. Purchase the introductory pack and watch Wine Cellar along with UK fine wine merchant, Roberson Wine (in the link above), as we taste through new arrivals from the Southern and Central Coast of California.

Michel Chapoutier’s landholding, track record and incredible consistency across entry-level wines through to single-vineyard cuvées are unparalleled in the world of wine. Having imported Chapoutier wines for the past 20 years, we are thrilled to have hosted a Zoom tasting with the Rhône’s dynamic master, Michel Chapoutier. Roland and Michel discussed the brand’s history, the famous Hermitage hill and the Sélections Parcellaires, which are some of the most celebrated and rare Rhône wines. Finally, they spoke about the philosophy and future of Michel's hugely successful Roussillon property, Bila-Haut.

'It's time to take Rioja far more seriously,' wrote Tim Atkin MW recently, as the Rioja landscape is changing dramatically. Thanks to, most notably, our ex-Young Gun Bryan MacRobert who moved to Rioja 7 years ago to start Laventura. Today, his new terroir-driven wines are causing a fuss! 'I want to make Rioja as it once was. I’m trying to make honest wines,' says Bryan who presented his refreshing, innovative and true-to-terroir style of Rioja live over Zoom on 1 July. Order the pack below and watch the video in the link above to taste-along!
