  • Rosé Tasting 6th and 7th July 2018

    Rosé Tasting  6th and 7th July 2018

    In case you haven't caught it on our Facebook page (do follow us!) we have extended our Rose tasting to this coming weekend. Come in and try the new Rosés from Germany, Italy (a delicious organic one!), the south of France and two from the iconic Provence!   This organic wine, the Saint Jean Lez Durance 'Pimayon' from the Haute Provence area of Pierrevert is a beautiful example of the dry, elegant and pale style that Provence Rosés are known for.  At only £14.99 a bottle you are getting one of the best organic boutique producers showing an elegant dry wine with notes of pink grapefruit, mandarin and even a touch of the heathery aromas of the garrigue that surround the slopes.

  • What a good year for the Rosés!

    Half Term is looking like it might be 'exciting' on the weather front but even a spot of rain won't drench our enthusiasm for Rosés!  Earlier in the Spring Paul visited the largest South of France wine tasting of the year and selected a number of possible new Chateaux to add to our increasing list of boutique small producers to import directly to the UK.  We've tried their wines and selected the best and most appealing and they should be landing in our shop in about 10 days time.  Among them are some Rosés from the Languedoc. Often better value than their Provencal neighbours these often offer the same grape varieties, the same sun and terroir for a more accessible price.  For those who only drink Rosé as long as it is Provencal (!) we have found a pale beauty that should arrive with us mid June for you to try. We'll be putting all the new wines on by the glass at our Wine Bar over the next few weeks so come along and try before you buy.

  • Venchiarezza Organic Wines from Italy

    Venchiarezza Organic Wines from Italy

    If you've visited our shop recently, you may have spotted this photo in black and white, hanging on the wall. Luca is an artisan Italian wine maker who creates some of the best new wines we've discovered in a long time. Luca's Venchiarezza organic vineyard is situated in North East Italy, close to the Austria / Slovenia borders where the cooler climate helps him create delicious smooth soft reds & fresh zingy whites. These superb wines are currently available from our wine shop on Cookham High Street for £12.99 a bottle, or you can order online for home delivery: http://www.oldbutcherswinecellar.co.uk.

  • #Marlow Pub in the Park

    After a very successful first year in 2017, Tom Kerridge and his gang are bringing back "Pub in the Park" to Marlow and beyond.  A festival of eating, artisan producers and excellent music.

  • Valentine's Wines

    Valentine's Wines

    It really is the thought that counts and if you are cooking a special meal at home for Valentine's day, make sure you've got the perfect wine to go with it!  We've got lots of advice for you on food matching either here online or in the shop in Cookham, but the best is probably put some thought into your other half's favourite tipple!

  • Fresh Organic Italian Wines

    Fresh Organic Italian Wines

    At the beginning of the year Paul took a trip to Italy to source some exciting new ranges for the shop and we would like to introduce the first to you. The Venchiarezza organic range is made by a young and talented winemaker Luca Caporale, whose wines are fresh and inspired.  He is passionate about the quality of the grapes in his Friuli vineyards, an area cooler climate than most and shows a great understanding of how the varietals work best with the soil. They've also gone down a storm at the Friday night Wine Bar here in the shop!

  • Award Winning Sourdough Bread from The Cookham Bakehouse - Fridays mornings in the shop!

    Our lovely friends at The Cookham Bakehouse bring us freshly baked Sourdough loaves each week on a Friday. These have just three ingredients - flour, salt and water - no added yeasts are used in the proving and as a result the preparation and rising takes longer using naturally occurring yeasts.  From first mix to finished loaf takes 24 hours.
