Perched on the rolling foothills before stunning snow capped alps, Piedmont in Italy’s northwest is not just a serious wine capital. From white truffles to hazelnuts, it’s got food cred as the birthplace of the Slow Food movement and is a UNESCO World heritage area for its culture of food and drink.
Red or white?
Whilst there’s some white here, the red grapes rule the roost. Chief among them the trio of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. The thread uniting this gang are persistent tannins, savoury red fruit and their elegant perfume.
White: Moscato, Cortese
Red: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto
Nebbiolo with its floral nose, layers of complex flavour, and fierce tannin and acid, is capable of ageing and evolving over decades. Whether from single vineyards or blends, it’s at its finest in both Barolo and Barbaresco.
For both price and performance Dolcetto is the everyday star, whilst Barbera’s acid and dusty red fruit will appeal to Pinot drinkers.
And you might know Moscato? The village of Asti, its home base, gifted this joyful, floral fizz to the world. Known as frizzante for its slightly sweet, slightly sparkling style.

Within France, the Loire Valley region produces the greatest diversity of wine styles. The array of wines made reflects the different sub-regions that share little in common due to the region's sweeping expanse. It's an exciting mesh of sparkling, dry, sweet, rose and reds styles.
Known as the 'Garden of France' the Loire Valley is a prolific food bowl producing delectable treats across cheese, cherries, apples, butter and vegetables. Covering 1000km from east to west, this picturesque region is a feast for both your eyes and tastebuds.
White: Chenin Blanc, Melon de Bourgogne (Muscadet), Sauvignon Blanc
Red: Cabernet Franc, Gamay, Pinot Noir, Grolleau
The Muscadets of the Nantais are influenced by the maritime climate. These wines are subtly textured, freshly fruited and best drunk young with some oysters. Anjou is where Chenin Blanc shines in various styles - sparkling, dry and sweet. Touraine is home to the tuffeau soils which Chenin blanc loves in Vouvray, and we see some red wines here too. Lastly, in the Central Vineyards where the soils are similar to Chablis, Sauvignon Blanc is the cross-bearer producing some exhilarating wines in Sancerre and Pouilly Fume.

Forteto della Luja Le Grive Monferrato Rosso 2020My lady asked me "what are you going to write about it" she's not really a wine nerd… anyway, my reply was "I don't know, it's such a unique wine it's really hard to get across to people what it's like". Let's give it a go...
There's a little of that soft drink thing here too. I say that because I don't know what else to use, it's like really good root beer. Sassafras's. wild herbs. Brambly fruit. It's breezy, airy and cool. It feels mountainous in so much as it smells so fresh with hints of underbrush.
Structurally there's just enough tannin to stop it feeling soft. Just enough fruit to keep it from feeling light on. Just enough acidity to keep it clear and correct. It all just works. With air it tightens up a bit and gains a bit more oomph, suggests that a couple of years in the bottle will do it good but it isn't necessary by any means. An old colleague of ours, who met us there on our last visit, used to prattle on about this wine as if it were a cure all, a tonic to ease what ails you. Maybe he was right. Certainly made me feel good. ROSCOE

August Mixed Dozen 2022 - Mighty Half Bottles
History is littered with the small and mighty. Those that their physical stature did nothing to stop them from putting their mark on the world. Joan of Arc was 19 when she died but had led France to victory and was later canonised as a Saint. Winston Churchill (besides being a massive Champagne nut) is widely regarded as one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century. He was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, a writer, and an artist and won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Mickey Rooney was a superstar by the age of 25, a triple threat, and a box office hit starring in over 300 movies that left a film legacy few can match.
With that in mind, we have put together the August mixed dozen with a cracking array of half bottles. These are perfect for a little mid-week treat or to share with a friend when just a quick glass and a laugh are all you need. They are also the perfect late evening wedge to satiate that Saturday thirst for something a little fun or a little special in the wee hours.
We are pretty proud of our half-bottle selection here and we think it is one the best in the land but it's getting harder and harder to find them. So, we have done all the hard work and crammed them into one great pack just for you.
