April - 20% Off All Riojas*
View this email in your browser

Our Website is corked... whilst we polish up a new bottle...

Ok, time to confess, we've done something pretty stupid!

Do you remember, many years ago, you used to be able to open things up with a screwdriver, have a little tinker, tweek it and despite having a few screws left over (unsure where they went), it still worked, probably even better than before?

Sadly, this approach doesn't work on websites.......and is down!
Hopefully the website we'll be up and running very soon but with these things, you can never tell......

'Ne'er cast a clout till May be out' 
No, that isn't an electoral reference but a lovely old saying from the 18C. and is particularly relevant with this rather fresh start to Spring.  I have a much easier way to see how warm it's been, by how much rosé I still have in the warehouse.....and there's still a fair bit!
However, Rosé aside, we have some sensational Riojas that are perfect for a cool Spring....and try some of their richer whites!

April's Rioja Promotion - 20% Off

So, all this month we'll be offering 20% Off all Riojas under £50 and 10% off all Riojas over £50.
Including, the epic:
2010 Luis Canas Reserva Gran Familia Rioja  
£27.99 usually
£22.39 Today

Rhone 2015 En Primeur
Now, whilst all the 2015 Cote Rotie & Condrieu is sold out, stocks are still good and are bargains when you compare it to the Bordeaux pricing........there is still plenty left, so get stuck in.

The wines are epic and appear to be in a class of their own, with a large harvest, alcohols are around 13%, so nicely balanced and Ill be tasting through a range of this next week, full report to follow.

..........Ok, anyone got a spare sonic screwdriver?
