Semillon

Semillon

Around the World in 52 Grapes


Semillon is responsible for some of the world’s classic white wines ¬– both dry and sweet. And yet no one really seems to drink them. Which is good news for us, because it means they’re some of the best values in the world of wine.

Tempranillo

Around the World in 52 Grapes


Tempranillo is one of the most planted red grapes, responsible for some of the best red wines in the world. And yet it’s oft-overshadowed by Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. We say no more.

Viognier

Around the World in 52 Grapes


When it’s good, Viognier is world-class. When it’s bad – well, there’s a reason it’s not always the wine trade’s favourite grape variety.
