From Le Marche the curious heel of the JOHNNIE WALKER Oliver Sweeney Brogue

From Le Marche the curious heel of the JOHNNIE WALKER Oliver Sweeney Brogue | Fine Wines | Scoop.it

Starting with the brand’s top of the line Oxford wingtip brogue, the JOHNNIE WALKER Oliver Sweeney brogue, was reworked so that the last and crank of the shoe (that’s the shape of the base of the last, for the uninitiated) could fit a whiskey miniature in the heel without compromising the shoe’s sleek lines. Working with their factory in the Italian Marche, the heel was designed and re-engineered customized to this model so that it could be attached from the sides, rather than through the middle. [...]

The Best Italian Wines of 2013 - A different view

The Best Italian Wines of 2013 - A different view | Fine Wines | Scoop.it

January always means starting fresh as well as remembering what came before. So it’s time for my annual look at the best Italian wines of 2013, but instead of offering a complete list (that will be printed in the Spring issue of my Guide to Italian Wines, available to paid subscribers), I’m going to take a different approach and focus on just a few wine zones that were home to some pretty special wines, offerings that don’t get a lot of attention.

Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi - Speaking of grapes that are largely ignored, Verdicchio is at or near the top of this list. Here is a grape grown in Marche that has uncommon complexity and can age –  given the proper care at any particular cellar in the best vintages – for 7-10 years and even longer in some cases (I tried a 1991 Verdicchio from the excellent cooperative producer Colonnara a few months ago that was superb and still quite fresh). So why don’t you hear about this wine more often? Simply put, the major wine publications focus on red wines, especially in Italy, so Verdicchio is priority number 35 (or is it  number 36?) for their editors.

The best new releases of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi I tasted were the 

2012 Umani-Ronchi “Casal di Serra”, the 2010 “Vecchie Vigne”2009 Umani-Ronchi “Plenio”2009 Villa Bucci “Riserva”Santa Barbara, the 2011 Stefano Antonucci “Riserva”2009 Stefano Antonucci “Tardivo ma non Tardivo”

Le Marche wine among 10 great dinner party white wines under £15 in UK | Fine Wines | Scoop.it

It's much easier to take red wine to a dinner party - it will reliably pair with most main courses.

But what if you preferred white wines? While most white wines will only work for white meats and seafood, it doesn't always have to be the case.

Here are 10 white wines, all under £15, that will see you through some great meals.

Cave de Lugny Macon Villages Blanc 2012, Burgundy, France - £8.49 from Wine RackClementine Chenin Blanc 2012, South Africa - £6.99 from Wine Rack (or £6 each when you buy 2)The Paddler Riesling 2012, Marlborough, New Zealand - £13.95 from fullaloveswines.co.ukDomaine des Aubuisieres Vouvray 2012, Loire, France - £9.99 from Majestic (or £8.99 each when you buy 2)Montenovo Godello 2012, Valdeorras, Spain - £11.99 from Majestic (or £9.99 each when you buy 2)Waimea Estate Pinot Gris 2012, Nelson, New Zealand - £13.49 from Majestic (or £10.79 each when you buy 2)Lammershoek Chenin Blanc 2010, Swartland, South Africa - £11.95 from Berry Bros & RuddVilla Broglia Gavi 2012, Piedmont, Italy - £12.49 from LaithwaitesCono Sur Bicicleta Viognier 2012, Central Valley, Chile - £6 from MorrisonsPoggio alle Rondini Verdicchio di Matelica 2012, Marche, Italy - This full bodied wine has hints of melon and apple, coupled with creamy minerality.
