Le Tour

September 2019

It is the event that lands right in the middle of every summer holiday. Le Tour (de France) spans July and 21 places across the country - some even known for wine! This month we try to do the same as we travel across France with Chez Greg to discover some new blends in old regions. We find our first white near to the famous Mount Ventoux. In the shadow… more 

An Italian Tour

August 2019

This month we pass through the valleys a few Italian regions, sampling the treasures along the way. Soave, Dolcetto, Pecorino (no, not the cheese) are all stops on our August tour. The whites provide a mix of the classic to the unfamiliar.  A Pinot Grigio is of course with us. This light, easy to drink wine is undoubtedly the most tested Italian wine in your fridge. We also bring in… more 

It’s Verde Again!

July 2019

Vinho Verde with IWCoK in summer is a sure thing. Why in the hottest month in the year would we look any further for light refreshing wines? Answer = we wouldn't and that is why we come back to this part of Europe EVERY summer :-) Vinho Verde here we come. Without question these are my favorite white wines when the weather is hot. Not warm days, I'm talking 30+.… more 

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 

Ole ole ole

January 2019

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
