One of our most satisfyingly tasks each year is the construction of our annual Winter mixed dozen. In our 10th year, it has featured wines from some of the worlds most recognized wine regions in Champagne, Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhone Valley. This year is no different, taking in the sights of both the Northern and Southern Rhone wine regions as well as Bordeaux.
I think what makes it so much fun however is the inclusion of lesser known but no less highly regarded regions such as Savoir and the Jura in the French Alps, Jurancon and Cahors in the South-West and even the island of Corsica. Part of the joy is expanding our own wine experience as we focus on these particular regions but also provide our customers with the chance to possibly experience a wine from a region that is off their radar.
This years route was perhaps a little less challenging than in some years, including the picturesque mountainous region of Savoie and parts of the Languedoc-Rousillon region. We are always quite proud of the dozen we put together and this year is no exception, quietly thinking this is the best one we have put together to date. There are no real challenging wines here, rather they are a collection of wines that we believe will appeal to all wine drinkers.

Whilst we have sharpened the pencil in order to offer a pretty smart price on a dozen, if twelve bottles is too many we have also put together special pricing on each of the wines, enabling our customers to put together a cheeky little six-pack of wines that might tempt them.
