Dear fellow wine lovers,
I hope that you are weathering the coronavirus quarantine well and finding ways to keep spirits high.
Personally, I’m using the time to re-discover some “orphan” bottles in my wine cellar and plan the tastings that I’ll organize once the quarantine is lifted.
If you’re looking to crowd-source ideas for some new wines to try during your own personal "desert island" moment, I thought it might be helpful to share the list of my best-selling wines, the ones that some people keep coming back for again and again and which I almost always have in the cellar because I buy them for myself.
As usual the list is heavy with Greek wines, which I find offer great value for money in addition to their novelty value for anyone who doesn't already know them. But there are also a couple of affordable French, Italian and Spanish wines that I count among my recent favorites. I mostly sell reds and whites, but highly recommend the two Greek rosés, which go perfectly with barbecued chicken and a lot of other good-weather classics for the good times that surely must lie ahead.
Best yet, because wine and chocolate are considered necessities in Belgium, I can still buy these wines at the importers and still deliver them to you during the quarantine--fully respecting social distancing, of course.
Let me know if you’re interested in trying a few bottles! The best answer to indecision is to buy several and compare. ;-) I am happy to sell whole cases or mixed sets of six bottles or more.
Be safe and I hope to see you again soon!
