The Real Wine Month – May 5th to May 31st 2015

The second Real Wine Month will be taking place across Ireland between 5th and 31st May 2015 and we hope will build on the success of last year’s promotion. Over 50 outlets participated last year and we hope even more will come on board this year!

Focusing on highlighting and celebrating organic, biodynamic and natural wines, the promotion is open to restaurants, wine bars, cafes, hotels and independent retailers.

Here at Le Caveau we are delighted to offer 10% on all our Organic, Biodynamic and of course Natural Wines! That’s over 100 wines on offer!

 

Happy bargain hunting!

Ballymaloe Cookery School 2015

Any occasion to team up to with Colm McCan, Consultant Sommelier at Ballymaloe House and Wine presenter at Ballymaloe Cookery School is always very welcome, so it was a real pleasure to visit Shanagarry once again and introduce some ‘hand-made’ wines to the Cookery School 12 week certificate students. In front of a full class, the wines showed quite well and were well received.

The wines showed were:

Coste Piane Prosecco di Valdobbiadene ‘Naturale’

Valli Unite ‘Ciapé’ – Cortese – Colli Tortonesi DOC

Bodegas Menade, Rueda ‘Verdejo’

Cantina Tollo, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo ‘Biologico’

Gran Cerdo Tempranillo, GONZALO GONZALO GRIJALBA

Arianna Occhipinti, SP68 Rosso IGT Terre Siciliane

Many thanks to Darina, Colm and the team at Ballymaloe Cookery School for the opportunity to introduce these wines to the class, and indeed many thanks to the students for your attention and feedback, very best of luck with the exam next month!
