Lusus (Portuguese) Wines Interview (Episode 201)

We have the great pleasure of interviewing Alexis and Claire a husband and wife team who have just set up their new venture Lusus Wines.

Luses Wines only sells Portuguese Wine from vineyards hand-picked (s to speak) by Alexis and Claire.

Many of the wines they offer are from small artisan vineyards where an inordinate amount of care and pride goes into producing some of the best wine to come out of Portugal.

 

Included in the Lusus catalogue is wine from Quinta da Casaboa who we interviewed in Episode 174 (https://youtu.be/vjcyLunyDws) and 196 (https://youtu.be/5yHJ1regwkw)

We discuss what prompted Alexis and Claire to start this new venture, how they selected the wines they are now selling as well as many other subjects.

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.

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.
