Champagne

Bollinger Special Cuvée NV

Why you’ll love this Champagne
Since 1829, Bollinger has been producing great champagnes with a powerful, sophisticated and complex style, and Madame Lily Bollinger, who died in 1971, was the wine's greatest international ambassador. Once, when asked how she enjoyed her Champagne, she replied, "I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it - unless I'm thirsty."

Rosé Wine

Rock Angel Côtes de Provence Rosé

Why you’ll love this Rosé
With one of the oldest wine cellars in the Provençal region, Chateau d’Esclans is a magical property and has been home to some of the world’s most coveted wine for centuries. Its vineyards stretch some 108 acres of Mediterranean coastline, growing the Grenache and Vermentino grapes that blend together to create the Rock Angel rosé.

White Wine

Daou Reserve Chardonnay 2019

Why you’ll love this Chardonnay
Brothers George & Daniel Daou discovered the land that was to become Daou Mountain 10 years ago, the result of their search to find an unrivalled terroir for the production of Cabernet Sauvignon. They bring the same drive, passion, exactitude & intensity that led these one-time refugees from the Lebanon to forge success in the business world to the cultivation of this land. The estate stands alone at 2,200 feet and is a true contender for ‘first growth’ stature with its soils, aspect and climate. This is partnered with the skill of the brothers in their pursuit of excellence in the vineyard and cellar.

Red Wine

Hitching Post Hometown Pinot Noir 2017

Why you’ll love this Pinot Noir
Hitching Post is run by Frank Ostini, whose family ran the original Hitching Post from 1952, and Gray Hartley, a former commercial fisherman. Back when they started in 1979, they had but one barrel produced in their garage. Later on they made the wines at the Au Bon Climat/Qupe winery, and now the wines are produced in Buellton just around the corner from the Hitching Post restaurant (yes, the one in 'Sideways'). At the heart of Hitching Post is a focus on Pinot Noir from vineyards in Santa Barbara County, specifically Santa Maria Valley, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Rita Hills and Los Alamos.

Red Wine

Soul Growers Cellar Dweller Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Why you’ll love this Cabernet
Soul Growers was formed in 1998 by the experienced winemaker Paul Heinicke with the addition of award-winning winemaker Stuart Bourne, and quickly gathered a strong following in their domestic, Asian and North American markets. Most of their dedicated team members are 5th generation descendants from the first grape-growing families who settled in the Barossa valley. They are fortunate to work with Old Vine, Survivor, Centurion and Ancestor vines, some being over 130 years old, and their goal is to let the unique character of these vineyard sites across the Barossa valley shine through in their wines.

Gin

Crafty Distillery Hills & Harbour Gin

Why you’ll love this gin
This is a small batch gin that is all about provenance and quality. Everything is done at the distillery in Newton Stewart where local wheat is mashed before being distilled. The key botanicals are bladderwrack seaweed from the Galloway coast, noble fir from the hills surrounding the distillery, mango to add a depth and sweetness, and peppercorns, to tie everything together beautifully.

Whisky

The Hive Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Why you’ll love this whisky
Founded by William Wemyss in 2005, Wemyss Malts takes a careful and focused approach to blending. Using his background expertise in premium French wine making and the family’s Scottish roots, William uses only a small selection of whisky from hand-picked casks to carefully craft distinctive and flavourful whiskies. The aim is to always delight whisky drinkers with distinctly flavoured recipes whilst always striving for balance and smoothness.

For those who seek the finer things in life. This chic gift box is filled with indulgent luxury. From delicious Pinot Noir to the classic cologne, Floris No 89. Everything that says style is in this box.

tasting notes

These are traditional wines, aged in French Oak barrels, bottled unfiltered, redolent in vibrant fruit with an intense vein of spice and earthiness but always with balancing fresh acidity. This Hometown is elegant, yet fleshy and filled with compact dark fruits and ripe pear. It has a substantial mouth feel, and a long finish.
