Corona del Toro

May 2020

As we slowly approach the end of  what has been something new for all of us, we decided to celebrate our upcoming freedom with the Crown of the Bull - or a box of Spanish wine from a Top Secret Spanish source. Our white wines this month focus on Verdejo. This is a very floral and aromatic wine, that will first take you to fields of flowers before coming around… more 

Hearty and Healthy

April 2020

Two special events this month for our members. First a new supplier from Vinohrady "Le Marche" bringing with him some lovely French wines and a potpourri of sea food delicacies. And, lets not forget that April 1th is international Malbec day ! Fire up that grill. Le Marche's owner is an old friend and fan of IWCoK. And as we all aspire for culinary goodness, his motto of "Tučné and… more 

Getting the Balance Right

March 2020

Firstly, I hope this note and the wines this month find you all in good health and with a manageable level of stress. It is not easy being locked away with such little interaction to the outside world apart from what we see on our screens. Lets hope this episode end soon, and we can all get back to what will be a new normal. It has to be better… more 

Land of cork

February 2020

One of things about enjoying a great wine is also the ceremony of opening the bottle, and of course pulling the cork.  It is this little piece of tree bark that holds the wine inside the bottle and lets it breath just enough. The most environmentally friendly product on earth - nothing dies in the process and it is 100% recyclable. A wine stopper for millenniums ! This month's box… more 

Welcome 2020

January 2020

Welcome to the 20's ! And with the start of the year when better to look at all the exciting things happening out there. Forget about Brexit, forget about the trade war, and forget about the impending doom of our environment. The really important news is this: Global wine consumption fell by 1% in 2019 for the first time in years - and this is good news ! Winemakers (and… more 

Time to relax

December 2019

As we move to the last days of 2019, now is the time to relax and forget about anything and everything that worried you this year. What better way to help you do that than sitting down with a lovely glass of wine from the best decision you made in 2019 -  IWCoK. This years holiday we have done our Christmas shopping with some old friends at Vino Vyhodne, a… more 

Thanksgiving

November 2019

November brings a few things to our calendar. The Thanksgiving party our friends through every year, Black Friday and the start of holiday shopping madness, and most importantly the light at the end of the year long tunnel. Yep the year is almost gone. This Thanksgiving we decided to take a selection of wines from the Loire valley in France. Famous for Sauvignon and Cabernet Frank, we have added some… more 

Colors of fall

October 2019

Probably the best thing about the fall is the color all around you. That was our inspiration this month, to find a box of wine with all those different colors and tastes, from around the world with a collection of medals around their necks. Our fall tour starts with two different Sauvingnon. Marlborough is the region of New Zealand that produces what many think is the worlds best, but we… more 

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
