A crisp red? Well, yes—Grignolino d'Asti fits that description pretty well.

This is a local speciality of Piedmont that has been left in the shade in recent times by an international appetite for the region's bigger, darker wines, such as Barolo and Barbaresco, although it's said to be a favourite of Pope Francis—his father, Giovanni, made one of the most highly thought of Grignolinos in the Asti region.

For those who enjoy an authentic taste of something different, though, the Grignolino grape variety offers pale colour, bright blackcurrant and strawberry aromas, and a combination of high acidity and grippy tannins alongside generous juicy fruit.

Grignolino means 'pippy', and refers to the relatively high number of seeds in each grape. For the winemaker, the challenge is to express the variety's potential for delicate aromatics without including too much of the tannin stored in those pips.

Spicy and just about medium-bodied, the Pavias' Grignolino has appealing aromas of strawberries and redcurrants, with peppery herb notes. There's plenty of ripe fruit freshness in the mouth, and cleansing grip that makes this a really good lunchtime or light meal partner for creamy sauces, pasta with squash or pumpkin, and rabbit or duck dishes.

Time will gradually subdue its arresting energy, but you should certainly try a bottle of this vigorous, appetizing wine in its high-voltage youth before making any cellaring decisions.

Eircodes please

The ideal delivery address has someone available to sign for parcels during office hours, so a work address may be a better choice than a home address. An Eircode eliminates any doubt about the delivery location, and you can find or check Eircodes here.

Phone numbers please

Our couriers do their best to deliver and often have amazing local knowledge, but in the event of difficulties a reliable telephone number for the recipient makes all the difference and is a required piece of information. A mobile number is usually best.

Track your order

When we dispatch your order, we send on a tracking code so that you can follow your order in transit on the courier's website.

Delivery outside Ireland

If you need delivery to Northern Ireland, our €15 standard rate applies, with orders of €150 and more travelling free—for the time being.

We do not generally send wine overseas because of the complicated bureaucratic requirements and very high cost. If you would nonetheless like more information about deliveries outside the island of Ireland, please ask.


Faulty bottles

Wine is a natural product: its variety is what makes it so interesting!

Sometimes, though, a faulty bottle turns up. It's rare, but it does happen.

We want you to enjoy the wines you buy from us, and we'd like you to enjoy doing business with us too.

If you are unlucky enough to receive a bad bottle, please let us know immediately by calling the office on 021 431 6000 and we'll arrange a replacement or issue a credit in compensation.

Broken or Damaged Deliveries

Despite our best efforts to wrap and pack securely, damage in transit occurs from time to time.

If there's a breakage, our couriers will normally return the whole fragrant mess to us straight away.

If, however, the damage isn't apparent until you open the box, we'd still prefer to have the whole parcel collected. We'll send you a replacement as soon as possible.
