Primi!

June 2019

The first days of summer bring the first wines of summer. Indeed this month is all about the "Primi". Nothing to do with primitive wines or culture, Primitivo (or primi) is about the first grapes to be harvested. These are wines associated with the southern half of Italy, where the hot sun ripens the grapes quickly, concentrating the sugar inside to make them very full bodied, fruity and strong. So… more 

Big and bigger

May 2019

Big and bold. That is what we are accustomed to with Bulgarian wines, and the reason we come back to the region year after year. But is there a limit to the power of these wines  ? IWCoK is going to test het limits this month with a number of BIG hitters. First point of note is  we are presenting wines for the first time from one of BGs premier… more 

Southern flavors

April 2019

This month we go south – Deep South. The kind of south only Chile and Argentina can bring to our tables. So back to our South American specialist Vicom for a tour de force of chardonnay, cabernet and Malbec. Start off with a simple pinot gris before exploring the deep reserva’s of chardonnay in his months box. Banana, pineapple and vanilla ever-present. Buttery and think with that fruity punch. To… more 

Along the way

March 2019

Lets call this months wines a collection. A collection because these are wines we have been collecting in the IWCoK cave over the past few months. And why not. Sometimes we run into a wine just like that, we like it and we buy it without any idea what to do with it. Ohh, the wine club business can be so romantic… A familiar wine maker helps, Mas du Bagnol… more 

La Belle Vie

February 2019

There is nothing better to chase winter blues away then some warm, feel-good wines from the southern French countryside. Returning to this land with our old supplier and friends at Chez Greg makes it all the better! Rolling hills, big rocks and plenty of salt in the earth creates some fantastic flavors from one of the most beautiful parts of Europe. Leading the white wines this month is Le Triporteur,… more

What better way to start off the new year than with a box of Bio dynamic Spanish wines ! You didn't see that coming :-)  . Indeed we start 2019 with a something new and exciting and with this months lack of sulfates, we can believe it is even a healthy first step into January. A "BIO January" wasn't our intention when we went looking in Spain, but after the… more

Looking at this years "Wish list", we have a fruity Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, a blend that is so fresh that your mouth will forget what you just ate, and a Riesling so classy and delicious that you… more 

New Old Friends

November 2018

The story around our new supplier this month is an old one. Old in that we met for the first time over fives years ago, but never got "it" together. Lets just say we have both been busy... A real shame, because Foltyn Wines has a great portfolio from all over the world that we will try out this month. If anybody says white wines from Austria, these days they… more 

Viva España

October 2018

Now that we have summer behind us, it is time to get back to the heat. The sun, sea and hills of Spain is our October destination. This time round we decided to concentrate all our white wines around the north of the country and on a single grape - Verdejo. Light, crisp and straw colored, this is a great wine for sipping in any weather. Offering a great balance of… more
