Lots of great Portuguese wines available to buy by the bottle
To celebrate the great performance of many of our Portuguese range at the recent International Wines and Spirits Challenge and the Decanter World Wine Awards we are offering many of our Portuguese wines by the bottle to let you put to together a really interesting mixed case that you can't normally do when they are sold by the case. It's not just us and the judges at the above competitions that like the wines. If you read the Scotland on Sunday newspaper read Brian Elliot's column tomorrow where he reviews Quinta do Zimbro Poleiros, a fabulous Temparanillo-based wine from the country's Douro Valley.

A couple of wines after a busy couple of days
EclecticTastes has had a busy including a couple of days in the hills on Royal Deeside, good fun all round but now a bit exhausted. Over the weekend we are going to be enjoying a good value reds from north east Italy, Pergolino's Rosso Veronese and from Chile Calbuco's Bordeaux Blend Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot. Both these wines proves that cheap wines needn't be bland and uninteresting because both have character and individuality.

Fancy having a fun evening trying some Christmas food & wine combinations ?
After a really successful and fun first food and wine matching session with Sarah Mellersh at Abernethy-based cookery school Let's Cook Scotland we have decided to run to run a Christmas-themed Food and Wine matching session. It will take place at the cook school on Saturday 23rd November starting at 4pm. EclecticTastes will bring some really special wines to taste with some typical festive foods. The emphasis will definitely on fun but hopefully you'll learn a bit too and discover some combinations that you can use over the festive period. Roger will tell you a bit about each wine and Sarah may even demonstrate a couple of the dishes while you get to taste some fab wines, some fab food and pick up some tips to put into practice at home. if you're interested let me know or here book on the Lets Cook website.

Peter Lehmann wines now available by the case.
Peter Lehmann, who died earlier this year, is a legend in Australia's Barossa Valley who after his father's death left school aged 14 and took up a position as apprentice winemaker in order to help support the family. His experience at Yalumba was not limited to winemaking and imbued him with enough business knowledge that when subsequent employer Saltram Wines ordered him to stop buying red grapes from the growers with whom Peter had developed long-standing relationships he refused, and started making red wine on the side. In 1979 Saltram was sold and this activity could no longer continue so Peter raised capital to start his own winery, Peter Lehmann Wines, which saved the livelihoods of many Barossa Valley winegrowers and in the subsequent 30 years has developed into one of the most respected of Australian producers. EclecticTastes is proud to supply these wines to you currently by the case but shortly by the bottle too. Click Peter Lehmann Wines at Eclectic Tastes to see the range.
