Here at Chateau Vincarta, we like to get adventurous. We’re champions of premium Romanian wine. Our roving correspondent, Ioana Negulescu, wrote about Georgian wine after her visit there in 2018. And we’ll die in a ditch for Riesling. But what about Albanian wine? Never tried it? Neither had we. Until we tasted two Uka Winery wines.
We’re all partial to a nice bottle of wine every now and again, but some people take it to a whole new level. Here are the 5 most expensive wines ever sold.
Fancy adding a bit of glitz and glamour to your wine-tasting routine? Check out our list of celebrity-owned vineyards and wineries producing wines worth trying!
Mirela visits Aurelia Vișinescu, a Romanian wine pioneer and Vincarta idol. We find out what make her premium wines so special.
When you think of vineyards, where does your mind naturally wander? Piedmont and Burgundy are two obvious candidates, or perhaps the Napa Valley. But what about nuclear power plants in Finland or floating vineyards in Thailand?
We visit Manuel Marinacci, a winemaker in Barbaresco, Piedmont and taste a flight of his wonderful Barbarescos.
Wine buffs know Piedmont for its luscious reds (especially Barolo) but that’s not the whole story. We visited Cornarea in May 2016 with David Berry Green to find out more.
Our first encounter with Conterno Fantino Barolo happened during a WSET tasting. We liked it so much that we included it on our Piedmont wish list when we visited the region. And now we sell one of their Barolos. Here’s the story of our visit.
We have the happiest memories of Monte dei Ragni. Of all the winemakers we visited in 2016 and all the wonderful wine nerds we met, this was our favourite. It’s the story we tell when we want to explain why we are so passionate about wine.
