Nice enough gamay, nothing special. Their Chenin Blanc is super good tho.

I don´t think anywhere is open for you to have a browse now, on a normal non-pandemic day I´d say P Franco or Noble Fine Liquor - but they do both have their full cellars on the Noble site now and as well as delivery I think they will do pickup at one of their restaurants if you want to get it yourself. Otherwise I posted a selection of good online retailers a page or two back - but I´ve had a scan of the usual suspects and they are selling out of stock fast!

Cheers mate, I work near PFranco, so will check that out.

Trying this and I wouldn’t recommend it unless you like overpowering tannins - Cantina Giardino is a great producer but this is a miss for me.

I’m the opposite, was drinking atleast 3-4 days a week in the pub, having about 10 pints each time give or take, if I went to my friends house add vodka and even more beers to that.

Haven’t had a drink in about 7 weeks now.

Can anyone recommend some nice beer glasses? I'm looking for something without a stem, maybe up to 500ml in size but at least 330/400ml to brim.

I got a few of these and like the shape but happy to spend a bit more (£20 or so) on something better quality:
