Wine Gang News July 2014

July Issue Now Published

We take a daring dash off-piste for part of our report this month when we look at the relatively undiscovered but  extraordinarly good wines of Jura in eastern France, as well as fortified wines from around the world, from Sicily to South Africa. There's also plenty of esoterica in the report from independent merchant Roberson, but then wines from far flung corners including India, Slovenia and Greece crop up on the high street too in our detailed inspection of the ranges in Majestic, Wine Rack, Asda, Morrisons and The Co-operative.

Monthly News Title

OK, so England slumped out of the Fifa World Cup rather dismally, as well as a few other favourites who failed to deliver. Are we disheartened?  Not a bit of it!  Not only is Andy Murray still flying the flag for Blighty at Wimbledon, but we have a fab competition for all new subscribers to The Wine Gang before the 13th of July - the day of the World Cup final.  One lucky person will win not only a bottle of Taittinger Champagne, but an official World Cup 'Brazuca' football, signed by Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger and worth £130.  For details see here.

Next Issue

Our next monthly report will be published around the 1st of August, but of course our mid-month survival kit of latest wine recommendations will be with members around July 15th. Sign up here to receive all that, and more!
