With previous experience working as a Sommelier, I got the chance to taste wines from all wine producing countries. I really enjoy exploring hidden gems and looking into boutique but quality focused producers. I love to judge wines by balance, friendliness in food pairing and their expression of terroir. Recently, I came across a lot of natural wines or low interventional wines, and I have to say I enjoyed them a lot. Therefore, I pick a few from my current favourites and want to share with you little background behind these interesting wines.
Visit our shop at 50 Queen's Road Central to see & touch the bottles in person. Say hello to Michael!
