We have worked all week. Every evening after dinner, we have opened our laptops to work on our new Shopify web shop. It has felt good doing some extra work for the business, as we have admittedly been slacking off lately. Or rather been focusing on tasting wines instead of actively selling them. Today we launched the new website with great pride! Not that it looks as good as many professionally made web shops, however, I consider this quite an achievement as we are complete amateurs in this field. Oh, the possibilities one has today with To honor the launch, we have also added some great new wines to the selection. So what is new then? A lot I might say. We have taken in quite many new wines from both Spain and Portugal, and we have started selling some of them by the bottle. The four new Torelló wines I have already mentioned, and I think I might haveo hinted that we were able to secure a few boxes of the amazing Martinez Rose from Rimarts. This Brut Nature Rose Cava sells out every year, but we already placed our order at Cavatast, to secure boxes for the spring. We haven’t even properly launched our shop and both the Torellós and the Martinez have soon sold out. So don’t hesitate longer if you want to grab one.
We also have some new wines from Portugal. Our one hit wonder, Antonio Madeira (our best selling red), has finally extended his range to include three new wines. We have taken in the Rose and the A Palheira Dao Red. Antonio has also made a white wine, however we were too late to order and were only able to get a sample box for ourselves. He makes 2000 bottles a year of his signature red, and only around 200 of the other wines. So the Madeira wines are true rarities. We have also extended our selection from Quinta da Pellada (same producer as Quinta de Saes) with some of the more premium wines: Primus, Pelada 2003, Pape, Doda and Carousel. The Primus and the Carousel have received 95 points from Parker.
So suddenly the selection has almost doubled. Hooray! Wait no longer if you want to stock up for Midsummer. Visit www.thewinecurious.com and place your order before Sunday the 5th of June.
