- The Rhône is one of the world’s most historic wine regions. Finding hidden talent there is like searching for a needle in a haystack.
- In the wrong hands Côtes du Rhône can be watery and thin, but Denis’ Le Chene Noir is dark, deep, and bursting with fruit and spice. Made in a small human-scale co-op in the village of Cairanne in Southern France.
- Thanks to Denis, the wine co-op now gives work to more than 60 local families, keeping the village afloat and the shops and schools open. It’s a real community effort, and the people are proud of the part they play in the wines.
- Benjamin is one of our top winemakers, gaining credits all round with all our Angels. He's also a fabulously decent Frenchman. Even though we turned this down first time round, he still wanted his lovely Angels to enjoy it. We're so chuffed as it's an absolute blinder!
- It's a Syrah blend with a big dollop of Grenache that makes it a classically Southern French red - big ballsy, juicy berry fruits, with lots of gumption to back it up and a naughty, spicy finish.
- Think lamb, lamb and more lamb and then relish in the wonderful discount you get as an Angel.
American winemaker Stephen makes some of the New World's most sought after wines. Very unlike the over-done fruit bombs you've come to expect, this modern Shiraz is mega classy.
When we asked Stephen to make us a little side project, he jumped at the chance. He still gets to be his own boss and you get his top-shelf talent at middle-shelf prices.
Ruby red in the glass, this delightful wine is full of mellow dark fruit, spicy black pepper and a smooth taste of smoky oaky warmth
Adrian and Rebecca's Family Reserve range is their seriously good stuff. Thanks to Angel funding, they've built great relationships with growers, so they get access to the absolute best grapes in the Yarra Valley, one of Australia’s top Pinot Noir regions.
If you're looking for a next-level wine that you can truly sit back and savour, this is the drop for you. This pale and light-bodied Pinot Noir is elegant and complex with delicate red berry fruits like redcurrants and raspberry. Rounded off with subtle oak spice.
It’s the perfect light and fruity red to snuggle up and enjoy on its own. But come dinner time is when it really shines. Try this alongside pan-fried gnocchi with mushrooms or a juicy roast chicken and veg… you’ll be in wine heaven.
If you’d not heard of Bardolino until now, you wouldn’t be alone. This off-the-beaten-track pocket of the Veneto has long been overshadowed by its more famous neighbours, like Valpolicella. But Marica Bonomo is on a mission to make the Bardolino region famous around the world. And with mouthwatering reds like this, it won’t be long before everyone wants a piece.
Bardolino actually benefits from the same soils, the same climate, the same winemaking tradition... even the same grapes you’ll find in top Valpolicella wines. So the quality is top-notch. It’s a different beast to your classic Valpolicella and Amarone fare though, it’s a softer, more elegant type of wine. Perfect for sipping in the summer sunshine.
It’s also the ultimate pizza red. Fresh and ripe, with aromas of red fruits, wild herbs and spices, which all carry through in the flavour. It’s soft and generous in the mouth, and just slips down a treat.
- I'm on a quest to discover hidden pockets of unusual grapes and for Angels, soo I was really chuffed to find this undiscovered gem. Luckily, I know the grower well, so I managed to secure the fruit for a keen price too!
- The Barbera grape is traditionally from the Piedmont in Italy, but can absolutely flourish here in South Africa. The sunshine really packs it full of fruity intensity.
- My silky smooth, medium bodied Barbera is crimson red with vibrant aromas of ripe red cherry, dried strawberry and a ripple of milk chocolate. I hope you love it!
“Dear Angels, this is my final tribute to my wonderful husband Jean-Marc Astruc who died on the 8th September 2022. It was the eve of the harvest and with the team we decided to make one final vintage for him. Naked immediately said yes they would support me in making this very special wine, which wouldn’t exist without your funding, so thank you, from the bottom of my heart." Katie Jones, Winemaker
Katie’s tribute red captures the essence of Jean-Marc’s style - it’s a wine to be shared with a roomful of friends, a table full of food, loud conversation and booming laughter. It’s soft and juicy with everything you’d expect from a classic Languedoc red. With aromas of wild blackberries, spice and unmistakable garrigue herbs on the nose. The palate is bright and intense, with ripe plums, blackberry and fruit cake flavours, complemented by soft tannins and a lovely lift of spice, wild rosemary and thyme on the finish.
For every bottle of Au Revoir Monsieur Jones we sell, £1 will be donated to the ‘Ahead of the Game’ charity, who provide free rehabilitation to those diagnosed with cancers, particularly those at risk, vulnerable, or experiencing poverty. It’s a charity Katie discovered around the same time Jean-Marc was diagnosed and it’s close to her heart.
- N.B. This wine is topless, meaning the winemaker has chosen to bottle it without the foil wrap around the top of the cork to save on waste.
- Having worked in the Rhône Valley for years Ben knows some really top-notch grape growers. He'd always dreamt of making a world-class Côtes du Rhône, but never had the money.
- That was until thousands of you crowned him your 2011 Winemaker of the Year. He used the prize money (and his expertise) to source the grapes to bring you this deep, ripe red and it's been back every year since!
- Perfumed, silky smooth and dangerously easy to drink - this crowd pleasing wonder is perfect for drinking right now.
- My Old Vines Cinsault grows on the Piekenierskloof mountain range at 700 meters above sea level on decomposed granite soils which in itself tends to make great wines, now add Old Vines planted at low density in 1976 and you get amazingly complex flavours from the delicate Old Vine trees!
- The intensity and complexity of this Cinsault is quite impressive - with notes of fynbos, minerals, pomegranate, candy floss and Turkish delight on the nose and then to have these repeat on the palate with a richness and intense finish only Old Vines can give!
- Because of the low yields of Old Vines this wine was produced in seriously limited quantities, grab a bottle and pair with lamb for a fantastic tasting experience!
Johan Kruger, Winemaker
- Barbera has been grown in Serena’s native region of Piedmont since time immemorial and naturally holds a very special place in her heart.
- With your support, she’s found the creme-de-la-creme of Barbera grapes and has been hard at work in the winery crafting you the most refined bottle she could possibly muster. Serena reads all of your comments word for word, so she’s hellbent on impressing you with how delicious this ancient wine can be.
- Her Barbera is remarkably juicy, with intense berry flavours dancing on your tongue from the very first drop. It comes with a fresh bite of acidity to keep things light and playful, elegant violets and layers of luxurious jammy red fruits,
