Our 128th year sees us still going strong with five ever-popular wine-bars in the City and a host of loyal customers, now enjoying a broader range of wines than ever! It was in 1879, when Queen Victoria was on the throne, and horses ruled the road, when Alfred Louis Bower set himself up as a wine merchant on Mark Lane, on the eastern side of the City of London. While the ruling powers of Europe squabbled over ownership of acres of barren desert in Africa, Alfred Bower paid attention only to what was taking place closer to home, specifically the fertile soils of France and Spain.

  • Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery.

  • So what’s the first thing you think of when you read Cariñena? I thought of the grape Cariñena, aka Carignane, eponymous as it is. What I did not think of was the region Cariñena in Spain’s province of Aragon. Why is that? It’s a good question, and one I resolved while visiting the region briefly early last month. Cariñena the region doesn’t jum... Read More

  • Marques de Riscal Rioja 150th Anniversary Gran Reserva Case of 6 Bottles 2004


    Botella bordelesa que sobresale por el peso, el embalaje sobrio y señorial, la etiqueta sigue la versión clásica de la marca aunque alguna información como el grado alcohólico (14º) resulta dificil de observar. En la contraetiqueta indica que se emplea tempranillo, graciano y mazuelo aunque parece ser que al final en esta añada el mazuelo se sup... Read More

    Si bien existen excelentes Pinot Gris, es difícil, sobre todo en México, encontrarlos, pero como ya dijimos, en Oregon, Estados Unidos, le están echando muchas ganas a esta variedad.
