There's plenty to take in round here, from the winding roads of the Amalfi coast, to the glamour of Capri and a day trip to explore remnants of the ancient civilisation at Pompeii. And whilst the Romans might think they've got pizza bragging rights, the province of Campania is home to mighty Naples. World famous for San Marzano tomatoes and also the epicentre of silky buffalo mozzarella, there really is no competition. The secret to the sauce? The sunny Mediterranean climate and the special volcanic soils of Vesuvius.
Red or white?
Local grape varieties of both colours are believed to have evolved from ancient Greek origins, so they know how to thrive in the heat of the Med. For inky wild reds with structure, tannin and depth there's Aglianico (al-ee-yah-niko). Whites are dominated by textural, nutty and fleshy Fiano from the little town of Avellino.
Aglianico is known as the Nebbiolo of the south, for its capacity to keep acid and tannin in these warmer parts. The best come from Taurasi and full bodied, savoury wines capable of ageing and evolving with some years in bottle. The most successful white is Fiano. Its honeyed florals and waxy style make it a great friend of the aforementioned buffalo mozzarella, as well as firm fish and salads. Special mention too to Greco, for its crisp whites with green apple, flint and citrus notes.

Friends & Family Drinking Dozen - Spring 2021
Prince Wine Store has been running for nearly 20 years now and in that time we have been importing wines directly from France, Italy, Spain and abroad. We go to great lengths to pick only the best of what we see (which is a lot) and bring it to you.
We have forged strong relationships with the producers we import into Australia and consider them friends and confidants in the world of wine.
Closer to home we have forged similar relationships with many of Australia’s greatest producers as well as many of the countries rising stars and young guns of wines. It’s a pretty exciting time for all of us lucky enough to be involved and we wanted to share that with you.
Every quarter this will be updated as we see great new wines, new vintages and the latest and greatest to hit our shores or slide their way across the table. At 15%-20% off or more, this offers exceptional value and delicious drinking.
Don’t forget to check back often to see what the latest version of the Friends and Family Drinking Dozen has in store for you.
