First things first- Hi! I'm Meghan, the new North American (ie Canadian) in the shop. I've been running Gastro Pubs in London for the past few years but decided a month ago to focus on my passion and devote myself to wine! One of the biggest changes in my life (apart from how much more wine I'm drinking) has been all the cooking I'm doing - when working with it day in and day out you kind of go off it and I never had the energy to get excited about cooking food when I got home... But now I cook to create flavours to complement the wine I want to drink.

Drop by on Tuesday to try a free sample of a range of new Bordeaux wines at the shop.
We have wines from the Left and Right Bank from 2005, 2006 and 2002.

If on your way home from work, there will be some great cheese and charcuterie to accompany
the samples.

Do you judge a book by its cover? Consider Catch-22, The Beach and The Great Gatsby.
Can you apply the same adage to wine?

We are looking at our best-selling Les Cepages Oublies, a winning blend of Gros Manseng and Colombard grapes- both widely grown in the Cotes de Gascogne, near Toulouse.
What is it showing? The soft green label has an old-fashioned look but the wine is anything but.
It is fresh, fruity, up-to-the-minute, and totally drinkable- at £8.50 a bottle.
