Wine has always been a key aspect of the culture of European societies dating back to Roman times and before. Below is an example where wine as a historical cultural force intertwined with religion. Rest assured that French and Italian wines (as we exclusively stock) no longer depend on this style of grape press! If you like a wine that is rich in fruit flavours but not heavily tannic, we recommend Reserve de l’Aube, SYRAH, MERLOT VDF, 2021 (france), from our wine list. I…t’s a deep ruby colour with fresh scents of cherry, raspberry and blackcurrant. Some report a hint of vanilla but personally I find it more varied and rich than that. It goes well with all meats, tomato based pizza and pastas and even some of the richly flavoured chicken and fish dishes – and as a famous wine expert once said to me , “if you are paying then drink whatever you bloody well prefer with whatever food you bloody feel like!” Yes it was an Australian wine expert (but it was at a formal event ) . I have always felt that was sound advice. Life is too short to worry about other peoples opinions and we pay for our pleasures. Enjoy! https://www.facebook.com/share/p/w8eActxLnCdwjLz1/?mibextid=WC7FNeJean de Courbes (French 1592–1641) Christ in the winepress 1593.
