It is not altogether surprising to learn that it was the Romans, with their love of the fine things in life, who introduced vine growing and wine making to Britain. Unfortunately these skills were mostly lost during the reign of Henry VIII and it was not until 1946 that the scientist Ray Barrington Brock introduced varieties of wine grapes suitable for our cooler climate, so enabling English viticulture to flourish again. Thanks largely to his original research vineyards like ourselves are able to produce an impressive selection of high quality wines. There are now over 500 vineyards in the UK. Rosemary vineyard was planted in 1986 and covers 30 acres at almost 60 feet above sea level. With its mostly south facing aspect the vineyard is ideally placed to benefit from the mild island climate. The valley situation helps retain summer warmth and offers shelter from the south-westerly winds. The gentle vineyard slopes allow excellent frost drainage in the spring to protect the newly budded vines whilst the Read more »

  • With one final nod to experimentation this year, I’m leaving you with this suggestion for fall: Try some Carmenere! It’s a variety that I’ve been pushing as a mid-weight summer red because it is a great wine with grilled meats, but it’s also a lovely wine for fall, though perhaps best used with some well seasoned, herb-dotted pork dishes as the ...

  • To welcome fall, and without a doubt the season has arrived, like clockwork, the moment our Labor Day weekend had wrapped up, I have always had a bit of a tradition of opening some Barbaresco. While my heart may belong to Barolo, the somewhat more elegant and more approachable wines of Barbaresco are perfect for times when you are looking for so... Read More

  • I got so excited about dolcetto this year, see my report on The Return of Dolcetto, that I almost forgot about Barbera!  I love Barbera. It’s a rich wine, though too often spoofed up with too much oak, but when you find an example that focuses on the fruit you get a wine that is bursting with mouth cleansing acids, rich with plummy fruit, and li...

  • 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

  • Sandlands, the new Tegan Passalacqua project, released today with an interesting mix of varieties at very reasonable pricing. Low production, 1-4 barrels of each so allocations were low.

  • Almost fruity by design, because that’s what we know you like. The natural, slightly bitter character of Malbec is being obscured, in those examples that through clonal selection, cropping, or vintage character still display it. In its place we’re increasingly finding the fruit that consumers have grown to expect from their wines. Not enough fru... Read More

  • After a brief introduction to the the state of Washington this past Monday I reported on my  visits to wineries in Walla Walla on Tuesday. Today I am reporting on visits both in Prosser, which lies roughly between Walla Walla and Seattle in the Yakima Valley as well as to wineries located basically within Seattle’s metropolitan footprint. As I’v... Read More

  • This is always one of the most difficult things I have to do each year. Sit down and try to figure out who will Snooth’s Winery of the year be?I'm never going to please everybody, or most  of the people even, but I try and select someone, or some winery that does two things. The first is to produce wines that I really like. Ha! Sorry about that ... Read More
