Cotes de Cotes

August 2021

This month we travel to France where I take a lot of “Artistic Freedom” in the name and selection.  In other words, welcome to a French wine ”Mix” and a few grapes a little less travelled. For our whites, we start with Sauvignon Gris that is not Italian, and then move on to a slightly tart Muscadet. We round out the whites with a couple of party wines and more… more 

La Fatorria

July 2021

Summer is finally here, and we are heading south to Italy with a selection of wines from our old friends at La Fattoria. Our whites start from Italy’s “Sunshine State” of Sicily and make their way up to the Tuscan hillside.  And not to miss a hot spot, a Lugana form the shores of Lago di Garda is also included with that lovely finish, that keeps bringing us back for… more 

Of Corse

June 2021

We continue our summer tour to a less travelled (and less tasted) destination this month – Corsica! Welcome to a land of Vermentino and a host of indigenous red varieties that will be new to many of you. Corsica has a long winemaking history, but it was only after Corsica’s most famous son of a wine makers family  (Napoleon Bonaparte) came to power did the islands wines begin to expand… more 

Holiday Fever

May 2021

The beaches of Spain of the South of France? It looks like we may even have a choice of destinations this summer. But no matter what, IWCoK has you covered on both beaches with our Holiday Fever, welcome to sunshine box. A first stop in Provence – works for us. We have a lovely French Vermentino (Rolle in local speak) from those rolling hills of lavender that is sure to… more 

Golden Box

April 2021

Gold, Gold Gold. Our April box could be called a collection of Prague Wine Trophy’s best of the best. With three Premium Gold Medals a Gold and a Silver, this box from our friends at Aperittivo has more hardware than you will find at Hornbach. Our white wines are led this month by a lite, subtle Italian Pecorino.  A hint of flowers makes this low acidity wine very easy to… more 

Tavern of the Seas

March 2021

Few people outside of the country know that Cape Town in South Africa has the nick name of Tavern of the Seas. Amazing what a google search can do for the name of a box of wine in March. Who cares about accuracy, I just thought it would be cool 😉 to pair up with this month’s African offer ! About the only thing I know about South African wine… more 

A Cellar in Town

February 2021

When we at IWCoK talk about the cellar in town, we can only be referring to one place – Cellarius. Be it French, Czech, Italian or new world, these guys bring us the world one bottle at a time. So what treasures have we dug up this February? Start with two bottles of a Czech and Austrian Veltliner. Grown just a few (hundred) kilometers apart, but with radically different tastes.… more 

2021 WILL BE BETTER!

January 2021

IWCoK starts this year with a wish for all our members. That everybody goes into to this one with more optimism than we finished 2020 with, and that we can all start to meet and greet like we did just 1 year ago.  This is super important because, IWCoK will be 10 years old in 2021, and “Management” have decided we will be celebrating all year long ! So lets… more 

Close to home

December 2020

Another feature of 2020 is that we will all be spending the holidays somewhere near home. Forget about skiing and a New Year’s party with the whole gang, and hunker down to something closer to a visit with family or a neighbor, board games with the kids, and what is left of Netflix that you haven’t seen yet. Let IWCoK help where we can – this Christmas we have concentrated… more
