3 Awards to ring in the New Year

What a start of the New Year,

We were delighted to receive a very touching accolade from John and Sally McKenna on New Year’s Eve: ‘Wine Person of the Year’ in their Megabytes Yearly Awards:

Wine person of the Year – Pascal Rossignol
Ten years ago, when Pascal Rossignol first began to introduce natural wines, via his shop and wine company Le Caveau, people scoffed.
No one’s scoffing now. Thanks to the patient advocacy of Mr Rossignol and his partner, Colm McCan, we are well on the way to creating a wine world where natural is normal, and where industrialised wines are seen as the over-chemicalised concoctions that they are. The Le Caveau wines are superb, and there is no better advocate for the cause than Pascal.


Then, on New Year’s day, Tomas Clancy published his Sunday Business Post Wine Awards, in which we retained our ‘Fine Wine Merchants Nationwide of the Year’ as well as ‘Burgundy Specialist of the Year’

‘Meanwhile fending off the annual competition from powerhouse Greenacres in Wexford, the other regular winner of the national award is Pascal Rossignol of Le Caveau, now ably abetted by Colm McCan and the rest of Le Caveau Crew.

Here the hugely strong base of French wines is now joined by the very best of the cutting edge natural and orange wine world.

Le Caveau’s influence as a wine shop and as an importer continues to be profoundly influential on the Irish Market and open-hearted wine consumers.’

Tomas Clancy, Sunday Business Post Wine Awards

‘Natural Resistance’ by Jonathan Nossiter

Delighted to be supplying the wines for the supper that will follow the screening of Jonathan Nossiter’s movie ‘Natural Resistance’!

here are the details:


Natural Resistance*

Irish Premiere

*With an Italian inspired rustic supper paired with natural wines from the growers featured in the film

It’s about respect for everything – not only nature, but also workers and customers.

19:00 Fri 06 March, 2015 @

A former sommelier, Nossiter’s Mondovino, a documentary about the globalization of the wine industry was nominated for the Palme D’Or in Cannes in 2004, one of only three documentaries ever nominated in the history of the festival. He didn’t foresee returning to the topic until last summer when he found himself in Tuscany, seated with Italian winemakers dedicated to resisting the prevalent use of chemicals. Nossiter instinctively turned on his camera and continued to follow these subjects against the sun-kissed backdrop of Italian vineyards. These protagonists of a rapidly spreading European natural wine revolution exemplify the movement’s ecological and cultural ideals, one winemaker says, “It’s about respect for everything” — not only nature, but also workers and customers.

This special screening is followed by an Italian inspired rustic feast paired with wines from the growers featured in the film and music from French raconteur Christophe Rohr on accordion with Zac Gvi on clarinet.
