I’m on my 4th order with this company and I love the quality of the wine at the price I am able to afford. They have brilliant quality wines and Port at a wide range of price points but you need to know your budget and purchase accordingly. There are great quaffing wines at less than £2 a bottle while too of the range complex wines are there too, for those with the purchasing power. I have just received delivery of 36 bottles for £115, 12 red, 12 white and 6 each of sparkling red, sparkling white. From order to delivery to uk is often over a week but things are improving now they have the new warehouse facilities. Excellent value and quality, recommended.

Winemaking:
The oldest process in preparing the sparkling wine was not the Classic Method, but the Rural Method or the Old Method (in direct translation from the French). The reason is related to the existence of a stopper – the cork stopper – which is produced from the cork tree that exists only in the Mediterranean climate. This Old Method uses only one fermentation and not two, as in the Classic one. The grapes for its preparation must have sugar content as a white wine and not as a sparkling, because it has NO sugar addition in their development process. All the used sugar in the process is natural, was completely produced by the vine. Initially, the must is fermented in stainless steel vats making the end of the fermentation in the bottle, in order to create gas with a pressure equivalent to that of the Classic Method. The final wine presents the fermentation flavors, which were entrapped.
