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.
We will be showcasing 2 Venchiarezza wines at our Thursday & Friday Pop Up Wine Bars this week. Firstly Refosco, an intense ruby red wine, full-bodied & round on the palate with a wild fruit nose of sour cherries, violet & spice. It's perfect as an accompaniment to cured meats & mature cheeses. For the white, we have selected Ribella, an extraordinary blend of Ribolla Gialla & Chardonnay grapes. It's lively, fresh & full-bodied on the palate ... absolutely delicious! Pop in & try a glass for just £5.50 at our Pop Up Wine Bar, 5pm onwards this Thursday & Friday.
