A mere twenty five years, that's how long International Fine Wines (formerly fine Wines of Europe) has been offering the best of European and Australasian wines to our clients. Not a bad stint really and while many things have changed, the fundamental things stay the same. Perhaps the key thing to note is that, today, there is more quality wine than ever before coming out of Europe. Of-course, today's global village brings with it global demand and so it is harder and harder to get decent allocations of the best wines. Everyone wants the stuff! All we can do is keep fighting for our share. Wine importing is a curious business. It's really a hobby that has gotten out of control; a passion from which we have foolishly decided to try to make a living; probably because we found we were spending most of our time on wine anyway! You need quite a few qualities to make it work: first and foremost you need a supportive family who will put up with your many overseas trips, countless evenings spent wine 'tasting' Read more »

  • Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion.  Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising.  First  - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free.  Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label.  Well, this 2014 Me...

  • “When was the land first used to grow grapes?” This is a common question addressed to New World wine regions. The United States, in all of her blushing youth, wears a thirty year-old vineyard plot like a badge of honor. But to ask the same question in Italy’s Franciacorta wine region would be absurd. Grape growing has been a part of life in the ... Read More

  • We feel that if a geographic area has shown wine excellence throughout a long history, then even more sublime heights can be reached with the addition of a dose of passion and attention. Campania was the breadbasket of Ancient Rome. Fruits, nuts, grains, seafood, meats, olive oil – authors from Virgil to Pliny to Columella agreed that if those i... Read More

  • As a UK journalist, and Master of Wine, I discuss, criticise and recommend not the fine wine, the great vintages, the en primeurs, but the everyday, the bargain, the high volume.  I taste thousands of wines each year of low, mediocre and good quality, and, within perhaps 80 or 90 tasted at one supermarket or off licence tasting, will find perhap...

  • Most fairy tales have a happy ending but there’s a wonderful story that unfolds every year in the middle of France, bringing wealth and riches to the poor every time it’s told.
