Our own “El Ruedo” is a young wine, produced using, local and traditional methods, with grapes harvested in the vineyards of wine cellars, in Olite situated in the Ribera Alta of Navarra. Its fruity and versatile character, it is an ideal accompaniment to a variety of rice and vegetable based dishes, hors d’oeuvres, pasta, cured meats, casseroles and certain types of fish.
The English wine industry is not only gaining traction amongst domestic consumers, but is now being ranked with wines from traditional white wine-producing countries such as France and Germany.
We are ambassadors for one of England’s 4 star rated  family owned vineyard planted on the site of an ancient glacial riverbed near Long Melford in Suffolk. Our sandy/clay soil produces quality grapes, high in natural sugars and acids, that lend themselves particularly well to both sparkling and dry, aromatic still wines. The vineyard was planted around 25 years ago and the vines are now in their prime. Madeleine Angevine, Bacchus, Reichensteiner, Rondo, Pinot Noir, (both Burgundian and Precoce), and of course our Pinot Blanc, all do well on this site. This is an  excellent opportunity to buy wines from a selection of England’s finest.

With an area of 3,761,274 km2, Argentina is the second largest country in South America and the eighth in the world. It boasts a great diversity of landscapes from ice fields to dry lands; mountainous reliefs to plateaus and plains; steppes to woods and jungles. A large number of rivers flow across the country into the Atlantic. To the west lie the Andes, the world’s second highest mountain range after the Himalayas, where Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Americas, can be found. The late recognition earned by Argentina’s wines worldwide, has made Argentina into a New World wine producing country. However, it is virtually an extension of the Old World countries: by its inherited knowledge brought by the first growers who came from Europe. This is where “Old” and “New” have become mixed. It is not exclusively one or the other. It is unique, something paradoxical, complex and rich by nature.

We have carefully selected a number of wines from Trapiche Argentina, a winery that has been in existence since 1883 to bring you quality that delivers pleasure in wine drinking.

Chile’s rich history for making excellent wines has no less been applied by Benegas Lynch’s great grandfather, a leader in the wine industry of the Americas and also the Governor of Mendoza between 1887 and 1889. He became decisive in the development of wine and the search for excellence. Travelling by mule he searched for fine grapes and replaced the local Criolla grape with other fine varieties to make the Mendoza a quality wine producer as well as founding the “El Traopiche” the most internationally known winery in Argentina.

Boulder Bay is an artisan vineyard. From the vine to the bottle, Boulder Bay wines are an expression and celebration of this special place and its people.

In the central part of the valley, alongside the Breede River the landscape is reasonably “flat” and terroir is mainly determined by difference in soil type, as the meso-climate and aspect in this part of the valley are very similar. Towards the foothills of the Langeberg and Sonderend mountain ranges, the landscape changes to that of rolling hills. In these areas a vast number of different terroirs can be found, which are influenced by differences in soil type, aspect and therefore also difference in meso-climate. Soil derived from transported material which includes the sandy and loamy alluvial soil, as well as the red clay loam and clay “Karoo” soils. Residual soils which include the shale soils of the Malmesbury and Bokkeveld soil families. The red clay loam and clay Karoo soils are the most dominant soil types in the wine valley and are often very calcareous. The water holding capacity of these soils is very good and the potential of growing quality wine on these soils are very high. The water holding capacity of the shale soils depend on the state of weathering. On the highly weathered sites the water holding capacity is excellent. On sites where weathering has not been that advanced, the water holding capacity varies from moderate to low.
