I've just noticed that one of our foremost suppliers of organic-and-biodynamic wines, Montirius, has invested in a shiny new website. High time I sold them my services as a translator for the few little tweaks on the English side that would do no harm.
I've just placed an order with a new supplier in Burgundy, Louis Chenu Père et (very hands-on) Filles, giving us a fresh lease of life in the affordable French Pinot Noir department. Speaking of websites, check out this simple, clear, striking design.
I was in Lismore last week, and called to say hello to Owen Madden at the Summerhouse, who sells our wines. He's very busy re-stocking, so if Schadenfreude's your bag, go and enjoy a leisurely cup of tea and a bun while he dashes about the place hard at work.
Down the road from Summerhouse is the deli-wine shop run by George Kiely and Tom Doorley. I owned up to spying straight away, but George couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. They've a great range of wines from a number of importers as well as fancy foods, and expert advice is free.
