Ervideira Vineyard – Interview (Episode 196 Part 3)

In this part of the episode, we visit the Ervideira vineyard and talk to one of the owners who is the vineyard’s winemaker.

He begins by explaining the history of his family’s vineyard – he is one of the fourth generation now running the vineyard.

They have a fantastic range of 25 wines which are all top-flight – they focus on quality rather than volume.

They also have quirky wines such as the 30,000 bottles wines that are stored underwater at a depth of around 30m in Portugal’s and Europes largest lake which, when you compare to exactly the same wine stored above water, taste significantly different.

Woodchurch Vineyard & Wine Tasting Visit (Episode 200)

In this video, I get the great pleasure to visit Graham and Donna Barbour and find out all about their fantastic venture into the world of winemaking.

I discovered their wine when interviewing Sara and Becky at Elizabeth Rose Wines and was so impressed with their Classic Cuvee sparkling wine that I ask to pop down to see them so I could discover more!

I visited the vineyard right in the middle of grape picking so a very busy time for Graham and Donna.

Graham explains their journey into winemaking from a completely different career path starting back in 2009.

Graham explains how they decided what variety of grapes to grow and then goes onto explain how to know when to pick the grapes besides, lots, lots more.

While there I was excited to taste three wines with Graham – their Blanc de Blanc, their Chardonnay and their very special limited Pinot Noir edition.

I really enjoyed this visit I hope you enjoy the video!

Take a look at their website where you can order their wines directly from the “Cellar Door”

3 Choirs Dry White in a Can (Episode 190 – Part 2)

In the second part of this episode, we taste a can of their Dry White wine.

On the nose, the wine smells similar to Sauvignon blanc, with John M detecting pears and pear drops.

When drinking it had pineapple/tropical fruits flavours or notes as they would say in the wine world.

It was very smooth and round such great quality for wine in a can – the perfect drink when you are travelling.

3 Choirs Dry White Fizz in a Can (Episode 190 – Part 1)

We begin this episode tasting a fizz!

 

Very light in colour, plenty of bouquet on the nose, and has a great taste of stone fruit, well-balanced acidity with an after taste of apple,

A fantastic wine to take to an event.

Sampling Wines from Elizabeth Rose Wines Ltd (Episode 188 – Part 2)

In part 2 of this episode, we taste some of the fantastic wines that are available to buy from their website at https://www.elizabethrosewines.co.uk/ 

 

The first wine we taste is from a small vineyard in the East Anglia (Essex) called Toppesfield Vineyard and is made from the Bacchus Grape.

The next wine we taste a Rose from Giffords Hall stable. This wine is made from Pinot noir and Madeleine Angevine grapes.

Next, we tasted a Woodchurch Classic Cuvee made from the same grapes that go into Champagne – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinoy Meunier.

Finally, we tasted a Red Wine from the Trevibban Mill on the North Cornwall Coast who try to be as organic as possible. This particular wine is a blend using Rondo and Dornfelder grapes.

Sara and Becky, explain what their current careers are and how they came up with the idea of setting up this new company.

Becky explains the difference between British Wine and English and Welsh wine.

We discuss the flexibility of their new offering including not having to buy a case of each wine that you fancy trying.

The site will also guide you through the many grapes used in England and Wales for winemaking. Names you are probably not familiar with. The site will allow you to determine which wines you may warm to based on the type of wine you currently drink.

Tasting 3 Choirs Wines (Episode 181 Part 2)

This episode follows John L’s visit to the Three Choirs Vineyard. Martin Fowkes, the Winemaking Director, kindly gave us some samples for John M to try back in the cellar.

The first wine we taste is their Cuvee.

Their Cuvee is in fact only £16.99, not the £20 that was quoted in the video and can be purchased via this link:- https://www.three-choirs-vineyards.co.uk/product/classic-cuvee-n-v/

This was a great tasting sparkling wine without the acidity people often associate with sparkling wine including Champagne. This Cuvee seemed incredible value as it deserved to be respected and enjoyed rather than just “necked”.

The next wine was 3 Choirs White Wine made from the Bacchus grape, whilst John M was slightly disappointed in the amount length, but John L really really enjoyed it. It was similar to Sauvignon Blanc, but once again had none of the acidity of Sauvignon Blanc which makes it ideal for those of you that like Sauvignon Blanc but do not like the acidity of this grape.

The final we taste is the 3 Choirs Vineyards Red Wine. This wine is ideal in our opinion for those people that are looking to move on from just drinking white to also wanting to drink red. the tannins are very light and the wine is very fruity. It’s nose (bouquet) is very similar to the Gamay grape which is used to make Beaujolais.


These wines are available directly from the Three Choirs website the address for which is https://www.three-choirs-vineyards.co.uk/
