If you are looking for a white wine that’s off the beaten track but quite brilliant then head to M&S and grab a bottle of this fragrant, exotic but very dry Lefkes Moschofilero from the Greek Peloponnese.

Made by Mitravelas Estate this 2011 combines bracing mineral freshness with hints of green fruit.

If you want to impress a wine snob friend then bring a bottle of this stuff. About £8.99 a bottle. Sadly not listed online as I wrote this.

Sipping in Slovenia Pt 1

I travelled to Slovenia this year invited by winery Puklavec & Friends to sample the wine and food of this much underrated wine producing country. My first 24 hours were spent on the Istrian coast near the town of Portoroz. We stayed at the beautiful Kempinski Palace Hotel, sampled wines from Vina Koper, Tilia Estate and ate at Solni Svet. More to come…
