Oxford Landing Stargazing Juicy Red 2022


Summer red wine drinking. That's what this is. Part of the new Oxford Landing range, it's a joyous red that will take a chill. And I reckon it drinks way better with a chill too. Perfect for those warmer days if you feel like something with a little more body than what a white wine can offer.

1920 Wines Alcohol Removed Pinot Grigio 2021


There is a first for everything, and after more than ten years of reviews, this Alcohol Removed Pinot Grigio is the first non-alcoholic wine to grace these pages. Bravo! With the non-alcoholic drinks market suggested to increase its market share by up to 30% by 2024, I suspect I may be posting a lot more of these drinks in the future.

Time for a cask wine review, it's been a while too. Not everyone sits in the corporate box drinking wonderful wines - I get that. Here's one from the nosebleed section of the stadium.
