Pierre Brigandat & Fils
This small Champagne House is situated in the small village of Channes and is now run by Bertand Brigandat, the son of Pierre. The Brut Tradition offers a mineral freshness and lemony, aerial and stony sensation which makes it an essential companion iodine food, but refined character
Jonathan and Rachel Treloar own and run this small, highly-regarded vineyard and winery in the Roussillon, France's most exciting wine region.
Their path was rather unusual. They lived and worked within 500m of the Twin Towers on September 11 2001 and witnessing that event made them rethink their life.
Fileno Grillo Sicilia
This recently modernised co-operative has its vineyards in the south of Sicily around the town of Agrigento. This is regarded as one of the finest districts for the indigenous Nero d’Avola. The winemaker Tonino Guzzo was identified by Decanter magazine as one of Italy’s promising stars.
This private winery was established in 2001 to realise the true potential of Abruzzos vine-yards, especially the under-rated Montepulciano grape. The winemaker, Lucio Matricardi previously worked at top estates in Tuscany and brings with him into this young team a blend of modern expertise and tradition.
Bodegas Sáenz de Santamaría
The wines from here are the heritage of Don José Santamaría, who from a young age was deeply involved in the winemaking process and grew up surrounded by vineyards. These same wines are now ranked amongst the best in the region.
