Virtual Tastings

Virtual tastings: Sample our wines and beers from afar

Tasting, and telling people about our wonderful wines and beers, has to be one of the best things about our job. Unfortunately, we can’t always be with you at the restaurant or in the store to tell you everything about our products. But don’t worry! That doesn't mean we can't inspire you. Our partners have put together fantastic videos that tell you all about their products. Approachable, personal and always at your service. So, get those wines and beers in, and check out the videos here.

Castello Monaci

Castello Monaci, one of our favourite wineries from Puglia. The beauty of this Italian winery is its predominant use of indigenous grape varieties, such as primitivo, negroamaro and malvasia nera. The wines are characterised by superlative, full-bodied, ripe flavours of sun-dried fruit with a delicious spiciness. Sound good? Taste a selection of wines from the 'slow wine' winery Castello Monaci together with winemaker, Luigi Seracca.
