WineDrop.co.uk is an independent online wine merchant which offers an extraordinarily wide range of wines, spirits and beers. Their list features wines from all the usual suspects, but also from Greece, Hungary, Romania, Japan, Uruguay and Brazil amongst others.
Brazil is an unusual choice – the Rio Sol Seco Cabernet Sauvignon is “Warm fruit and a little edge. Pleasingly soft palate with modest length of flavour – emminently quaffable but something of a curiosity! It is the only wine in the world produced at 8 degrees South – indeed it used to be said that wine was impossible to produce in the North East of Brazil (São Francisco Valley, Pernambuco Province), as vines grow continuously all year, and each plant completes a growing cycle in only five months – so two vintages in a year are the norm!
(The EU will probably ban this soon – so try a bottle whilst you can!) ”
Now teamed up with Bristol’s Clifton Cellars – you are bound to find something different and interesting here, although there is no indication of any tastings to sample any of their offerings before you buy. There are also some West Country ciders and ales on offer.
Our aim is to offer a friendly and prompt wine delivery service for one of the widest range of competitively priced wines on the net, to offer a touch of old fashioned wine merchant service in an on line wine merchant world!
New to Pinot Grigio? or thoroughly bored with it, come to us! Fifty years of professional sniffing-tasting-spit…should have given us just that little bit of extra experience. Getting soft with age, quality comes first for us, value for money follows. Having always been free to do so, we strive to buy as individually as possible. We like the classics of the Old World but we are also responsive to developments in the New – after all in the early 80s we were the first in the UK to import a comprehensive range of Australian wines from Penfold’s – sadly now such a shadow of their former selves.
