Our Spring 2018 L&S collection is here! As temperatures rise and the sun begins to make more of a regular appearance (we hope?), it's time to start enjoying "lighter" wines. We have included a few rich whites and reds, powerful enough to stand up to barbecued meats. But, spring is the time for lighter foods: seafood, fish, salads, and picnics: sandwiches, nibbles and cocktails.
Why not try a new grape variety you may not have heard of, like our Hungarian Furmint or Sumoll from Catalunya? Have something special to celebrate? Pop open a bottle of our no-dosage Franciacorta or red-berry fruit filled Legras Rosé "Grower champagne".
In the mood for a lovely Gin & Tonic to enjoy after a long week at work? Tickle your tastebuds with our new "Apothecary Rose" gin from The Old Curiosity Distillery (in Edinburgh). Finally, for those of you who prefer to sip a thirst quenching non-alcoholic cocktail during the week... Seedlip Garden 108 and Tonic is exactly what you are looking for!
If we could be of further assistance, please give us a call on 0207 221 1982 and we would be happy to help.
Looking forward to hopefully seeing you, at our Kensington store, very soon.
