It’s been a deliciously buzzy autumn so far. We heralded in the last vestiges of summer with some glorious wines from the Bosco vineyard in the Abruzzo region: a walloping Chardonnay, a super anytime-anyplace-anywhere rosé and two lip-smacking Montepulcianos, one a Riserva: big glass to allow the aromas to gad about, lit fire, comfy chair and a bit of quiet time in which to savour the long finish of this wine whilst contemplating the joys of life, and your life in particular. (Yep, I have a fantasy scenario for all my drinks not to mention an outfit - Marni, Dries Van Noten, Margaret Howell and cleverly mixed in vintage, FYI).
Currently, we are in a heightened state of anticipation for the arrival of wines from two new vineyards in Sicily: biting nails, tapping feet and gulping wine SIMPLY CANNOT WAIT!
While there will always be room for more wine, we feel that for our first year in business we have achieved a good representation of Italy’s important wine-growing regions. We started out last November with just 18 wines and 1 olive oil and we are now stocking 38 with 6 more to hit the site in the next fortnight. We are delighted to have made this progress – in fact we may have to crack open a bottle or two in celebration!
Also coming soon: our new 2-bottle wine boxes so although these may not be ideal for stocking your cellar/wine rack/cupboard under the stairs, they are perfect for sending as gifts to special people or treasured employees (and you-know-what is just around the corner!).
We are also offering wine tastings to introduce you, your friends or your customers to our wines. If you wish to host a very special Art House Wine tasting, please contact us to arrange. We are based in the South-West but can travel, within reason.
Finally, we will be exhibiting at Cheltenham Wine Festival in April 2017 and would love to meet you there! One for the diary (leather-bound with hand-crafted pages).
Very enthusiastic wine lover who loves a party!
