...actually, we don't really know anything. We don't even know who's going. Although apparently neither do they... But we know what we'll be drinking - what about you?
We're big fans of English sparkling. Great value. Brilliantly fresh. And all very patriotic. We particularly love HART OF GOLD made by our Head of Wine, Justin Howard-Sneyd MW (see here).
Annoyingly though, there aren't always enough of the nice ones to go around and prices are on the up. So what else? Rather than looking for a Champagne alternative - we think there's amazing value and character in the new wave of independent grower producers in Champagne. Tough to know where to start - but we've chosen two of our favourites:
COLIN - available from French Bubbles here
R&L LEGRAS - available from BBR here or Lea & Sandeman here
Improvements and New Releases
Money Back Guarantee - We're pretty sure that you won't need this, but if you don't like a wine - just send it back and we'll refund or exchange for another wine of similar value.
Box shot of the week
How do we select our wines?
Our starting point is to find wines that we can honestly say we love to drink ourselves. After just a couple of weeks of business, we can happily report that the founders of BIB Wine have been pretty busy buying up our own stock. This isn’t a weird financial scam - we just like the wines.
To get to this point though, we have developed an ethos that helps us to find the most delicious wines.
Firstly - it’s about taste and not about labels or status. This means we can be led by the nose to the best wines. Secondly, wine is about land, vines, and people. Respect for the land and growing environment goes a long way to creating wines of character and quality. We don’t believe in being constrained by a single set of rules, but it’s no coincidence that most of our wines come from organic or biodynamic growers. Small scale, low intervention, sustainable - these are not buzzwords for us, but crucial elements of our ethos. In talented hands, wines made this way are often very delicious.
