The wines chosen for Spring by Monique, our sommelier, this week show support for our local English winery Gusbourne as well as something close to her heart, which is the country of South-Africa where the government has banned all domestic alcohol sales. The previous ban has already had a huge impact on the country and is now crippling restaurants as well as livelihoods all across the country.

Light up the BBQ and enjoy these wines whilst showing support.
