For those that have subscribed to low-intervention £50pm, are you more likely to get 2 or 3 bottles a month? Would like to commit but I'm not prepared to pay £25 for a bottle of wine I don't know whether I'll like.

Alternatively, are there any other decent monthly subscription sites? Thanks.

Tastes a bit like an alcoholic Lilt - 7/10.

Thanks to pentonville and everyone here for the advice in this thread about minimal intervention/natural, first deliveries.


More incoming from Valentina Passalacqua, benefit of living in Italy is slightly easier access to some of the local producers - not the Frank Cornelissen though, that took some tracking down!

Savoury citrus and delicious crisp sherbet tartness

Lovely depth to the sucrose with a hint of aspartame.

Have the Peaux Pinot for the weekend, expecting something much more aromatic

Calling out a thread as ‘poncey’ on a message board for middle-aged men to tell each other how nice they look in jeans Laughing out loud back to the Valentines’ day thread with yourself, Gareth.

Your focus on all this alcohol has got the better of you, you've been blindsided and let your guard slip, and that's why all your clothes don't fit properly

Bit weird calling someone poncey if they literally import wine for a living and therefore is knowledgeable and likes to talk about it.

I import foreigners for a living and I don't go on about them. Perhaps I should start

This is some dire banter. Anyway here’s a Slovenian Pinot Gris- the second wine I’ve had from this producer and both have had a bit of brett about them.. not a disaster but if it’s not to your taste it’s best avoided
