Every year, while we quietly go about our day to day business, there are experts going around the world trying to find the best growing regions and the grapes they produce. These wines are usually identified around 2 years in advance, giving our suppliers time to work with different growers making sure they can produce just the right grapes at just the right times. The grapes wind their way through the early life stages of becoming a wine, and when they are finally turned into juice, we get to bring them into the shops and put our finishing touches on them where they turn into some of the best tasting, highest quality wines we produce each year. For better or worse, they're only available for a limited time.
This year we're excited to bring 5 different wines to the shop, each with its own exciting characteristics!
