I recently lunched with the good people of Chateau d’Esclans. Chateau d’Esclans is located in Provence and as the region is famed for its rosés it shouldn’t be a surprise that Chateau d’Esclans makes some rather excellent rosé wines. They are known for producing such great wines as Whispering Angel, Rock...

The Savoy may be one of the oldest and most famous hotels in London (if not the world) but that doesn’t mean that they rest on their laurels.  I was invited to partake of a new menu recently introduced to the Thames Foyer. The Thames Foyer is dominated by a magnificent glass domed atrium which makes the room all the more...

I love champagne. I love the many different options that are available – Non-Vintage, Vintage, Blanc de Noirs, Blanc de Blancs, Vintage Rosés, Non Vintage Rosés, the list goes on and on.

I’ve just discovered a place that combines 2 of my passions, wine and golf!
