  • Port & British Cheese

    Whitmore & White / December 5, 2019.

    Port and cheese is just so quintessentially British isn’t it? And it's never more so than at Christmas time when sales of both sky-rocket! Putting the festive tradition aside for a minute, with the style ranging from white Port, through aged Tawny styles and onto single vineyard and vintage Ports, there’s no reason why Port shouldn’t be consumed at any time of year! And with the wealth Continue reading

  • Akashi-Tai Plum Sake

    Whitmore & White / December 1, 2019.

    I’m sure you’ll agree that nothing screams Christmas like Plum Sake. What? You’ve never even heard of Plum Sake?!! Fair enough, nor had I until a few years ago, but now, along with Bing Crosby, Burgundy, and Star Wars Lego, it’s on my Christmas essentials list. Continue reading

  • The Grape & The Groove at Christmas!

    Whitmore & White / November 30, 2019.

    Christmas tunes: some people love them, some people not so much. Personally, if I never hear Mariah Carey’s cash cow again that would be just fine! But I ain’t no humbug;  I love a bit of ‘Winter Wonderland’, East 17’s cringy ‘Stay Another Day’ makes me feel bewilderingly nostalgic, and I get misty-eyed at the final verse of ‘Fairytale Of New York’.  Continue reading

  • Jacques' Whitmore & White Christmas

    Whitmore & White / November 21, 2019.

    Jacques has been managing our shop in Frodsham for a couple of years now, and fresh from his starring role in ITV2's Killer Camp this Halloween, we asked him about his plans for Christmas. Needless to say the waxing lyrical went on for some time, but who are we to argue with a man who got blown to bits in the back of a hay trailer on national television?  Continue reading

  • New Wine from Spain and Austria!

    Whitmore & White / November 2, 2019.

    Our regular customers will know that we need little if any excuse to try new wines and pick a few new ones for our shelves in Heswall and Frodsham, or for selling here online for that matter. Is Autumn an excuse? Why yes, it is here... Here's Graham with a few top choices joining the Whitmore & White wine range this month from Spain and Austria! Continue reading

  • New French Wine at Whitmore & White

    Whitmore & White / September 2, 2019.

    Never one to stand still for long, Graham has returned from yet another arduous wine safari to bring another round of new wines to our shelves in Heswall and Frodsham, as well as being available online here! This time we're looking at three French wine producers, Domain Les Yeuses on the Mediterranean coast just south of Montpellier, Domaine Morin Langaran from just a little further south again and La Ferme du Mont in the Rhone.

  • The Grape & The Groove #3

    Whitmore & White / July 6, 2019.

    My latest marriage of grape and groove tells the tale of how a Mexican guitar virtuoso was inspired by a boozy New York saxophonist to write a tune that would enthrall a celebrated author and grace a sunset over Spain’s North Atlantic coast. The grape is Albariño and the groove is Santana’s “Samba Pa Ti”, and the story starts in the Rías Baixas region of Galicia.  Continue reading

  • Chorizo & Garbanzo Estofado

    Whitmore & White / June 1, 2019.

    I adore this dish - in fact it's a firm favourite with all the W&W team! This is a very traditional Spanish dish, which is as delicious as it is simple. Continue reading
