Alasdair Carnie joins us in March to support the team in the office and warehouse. He comes to us as a keen Marathon runner, is a fluent French speaker and dabbled in the world of Cognac making for several years before settling back in Scotland to work in the Whisky industry. With a history like that, he is going to fit in very nicely here at de Burgh!
The Prosecco bubble is at last beginning to burst and Cremant is becoming a thing again and justly so. In February 2018, we did not have even have one on our list and now we have three – with a view to potentially listing more! The Meyer Fonne was the first Cremant we took on and were very impressed with the oodles of flavour and silky soft finish. The Bourgogne Blancs de Blancs from Verpaille is toasty and yeasty, whilst the de Chanceney Rose from the Loire is packed full of crunchy summer pudding fruit and looks super too. What’s not to love…
The new wines from Domaine de la Verpaille in Burgundy have just arrived at Fordel. Will and Christine found this lovely little estate on their way back from holidaying in France. They are rich, classy and we like to think, fantastic value too. The wines aren’t bad either!
We also have a brace of organics from Bodegas la Purisima in Yecla, Spain. A Macabeo and Monastrel, both of which are great value, juicy and tasty. We are really looking forward to hearing your feedback on them.
We are now gearing up for Spring and planning our Spring Offer along with another photo shoot to get your mouths watering. If you are not already subscribed to our mailing list then follow the link to sign up to avoid missing out on upcoming Spring and Summer offers!
This is just a snippet of what we have been we have been up to since the turn of the year. We can guarantee that there is much more in the pipeline….
Let’s hope that the sun shines again this summer!
