At Ancient and Modern Wines Ltd we concentrate very much on the Ancient side of fine wine. Most of our stock is at least 10 years old and thus mature or at least semi mature. All wines sourced are of the best possible provenance. Anniversary wines play a big part of our fine wine list so whether your celebration is for a 20th, 30th 40th, 50th (or more!) Anniversary or Birthday we can generally suggest something to suit. If your choice of vintage falls in a weak year we always can recommend the purchase of a fortified wine such as Port or Madeira. As we have stock going back to 1898 most birthdays can be happily accommodated! – Description from iskicm

Female winemakers in Piedmont have changed the conservative winemaking landscape to one that is inclusive of women. France is no different. This piece examines five scintillating wines from a group called the Fem... Read More

  • Montalcino is a beautiful medieval hilltop village just 40 miles south of Siena, on the ancient roadway to Rome. It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... Read More

  • Turkish wines aren’t exactly at the forefront of our collective fine wine consciousness in the West. That’s a shame, because in Turkey we are seeing one of those pleasant ironies that often crop up in the wine world: an ancient wine producing region that is re-emerging as a quality player in the modern wine market. And when we say “ancient” here... Read More

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • Hey DV - didn't mean to sound like an argument with you - I know you're too much of a realist to buy into some hooey.But look at what even Jamie says - Many of the big brands that have become such a feature of modern wine retail are made in factory-like wineries in huge quantities—and almost to a recipe, in terms of their flavour profile.But exa...

  • I just read an interesting article about some wine makers in BC trying wine made strictly from grapes with nothing added, in clay amphoras.  Is this nothing new in California?http://www.winealign.com/blog/2014/10/22/the-british-columbia-wine-report-october/?utm_source=Vintages+Newsletters&utm_campaign=5d8b674693-BC_Wine_Oct&utm_medium=email&utm_...

  • Inspired to build an authentic medieval castle to honor his Italian heritage and showcase his exceptional wines, Dario Sattui studied architecture for 30 years before he created Castello di Amorosa. The 121,000-squarefoot fortress took 14 years to build, stone by stone. The Castello has 107 rooms, 95 of which are used for winemaking and wine sto... Read More

  • In a world where extremes are becoming the paradigms for perfection its a little surprising that one doesn’t hear much of the wines of Saxony. Strike that. One doesn’t hear anything about these wines. And that is not surprising because the production is tiny and the wines almost all consumed locally. But you should be hearing about these wines, ...

  • Oh dear, more good French wines well under $20, even after import across the Atlantic. I'm liking Chambers Street more and more, the more I visit their offerings. These guys seem to understand wine in ways that I do and like. In their essay below there's a link to a current Asimov article on Muscadet. It's also well worth jumping to and reading.... Read More
