Where have we been?
For us, visiting producers and growers is not only great fun but also hugely important in building up knowledge and relationships. It’s a real joy to travel to interesting places and get a real understanding of particular regions and how producers make their wine/whisky or whatever in such a specific way.
These stories and experiences then come back to the shop and are past on to our customers with infinately more knowledge and enthusiasm.
Cycling through Provence and visiting growers in Ventoux, Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas and Vacqueyras.
Australia 2012 with visits to all of the regions around Adelaide (again on two wheels).
Cycling through Piedmont with my big brother in 2011. Tracking our way from Milan to Nice via Alba with stops at Vigne Marina Coppi and GD. Vajra in Barolo.
Take a look at at some of the places we’ve visited over the years.
