Perhaps the best feature of The Society for me is the honest appraisal of wine and offering it at a good price. I wish I had the cash for big names. But I can trawl for good value. For me a key feature of my wine shopping is trying to find wines which I like at prices which allow me to drink more of them. Which can be a fool’s errand if you like Burgundy.
But tannat from Uruguay is a good alternative to the same grape from Madiran wines from France and so on. I have found (horror of horrors!) that Alsatian whites make good spritzers in our recent hot summer.
And Sherry! Dios Mios! (My God) Such quality still undervalued. Thank goodness for value.
