Our wines featured in the national press
Wines of Piemonte
Piemonte (Piedmont) is a region in north-west Italy, and is home to some of the country’s most legendary wines. Its native Nebbiolo grape is used for famous red wines like Barolo and Barbaresco. Discover juicy Barbera d’Alba that tastes like wild strawberry and spiced cherry, refreshing Arneis white wine from the hills of Roero and low-alcohol sparkling Moscato d’Asti.
Wines of Veneto
Veneto is Italy’s most productive wine-growing region that produces over 1 billion bottles of wine with protected designation of origin every year. Its Valpolicella wines – Amarone, Ripasso, Recioto and Valpolicella Superiore – are as different as they are legendary. We also stock elegant and fragrant whites from Lugana DOC, and of course Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Prosecco.
Wines of Alto Adige
Alto Adige is the Alpine region of Italy also known as South Tyrol. It’s home to the Europe’s highest vineyards. This is where you’ll find delightful cool-climate wines, including intensely aromatic Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc). It also produces the best Italian Pinot Noir, as well as its own dark and crisp red wine: Lagrein.
Wines of Toscana
The rolling hills of Tuscany (Toscana) are home to vineyards producing rich wines with a bold, bright flavour. Famous Tuscan wines include Chianti Classico, Rosso di Montalcino and Brunello di Montalcino. The region is also renowned for its experimental Super Tuscan wines, which blend Sangiovese with international grapes like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Wines of Umbria, Abruzzo and Puglia
Discover some of the most powerful red wines with firm tannins, deep colours and rich tastes of black fruits: Montefalco Sagrantino, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Negroamaro and UK-favourite Primitivo (also known as Zinfandel). But Umbria is also the birthplace of Italy’s legendary crisp and sharp white wine: Trebbiano Spoletino.
Wines of Sicilia and Sargedna
Explore wines from Italy’s largest islands, Sicily and Sardinia. Volcanic Sicily is famous for Nero D’Avola wine, a rich red with captivating flavours of black fruit, chocolate and tobacco. Discover the delightfully complex red wine Cannonau di Sardegna – with powerful tannins and notes of black fruits – or try fresh and concentrated Vermentino from Gallura – the most prestigious wine region of Sardinia.
