• Pairing Wine with Venison

    Whitmore & White / November 2, 2018.

    From October onwards the Venison season is upon us and what a season it is! Magnificent and versatile meat, there are so many delicious ways to cook it - but which wine should you drink with it? You simply must do this wonderful meat justice, so here are my three favourite venison dishes with three perfect wine pairings.  Continue reading

  • Autumn Wine Sale!

    Whitmore & White / November 2, 2018.

    Let's face it, everybody loves a good sale and we're no different - who doesn't love grabbing a bargain?! Wine sales often get a bad press because supermarkets and big online retailers do deals for Chateau Le Spillage and then foist it on you for a bargain price claiming it to be the best thing since crushed grapes! Well here's the thing... it isn't. So we're not doing that...  Continue reading

    Whitmore & White / November 1, 2018.

    We like a list. Everybody likes a list. This list is a list of our top ten wines under a tenner. Simple. Or is it? Trying to find a wine that isn’t a “supermarket” wine that can be sold under £10 these days is harder than you’d imagine! Continue reading

  • Spirit of Autumn

    Whitmore & White / October 30, 2018.

    The feeling of our long days drawing ever shorter, nights growing colder and becoming accustomed to being greeted with frost can be dreadfully daunting.

  • Organic Wine

    Whitmore & White / September 27, 2018.

    Organic wine! What does it mean and where do we start? The first thing to remember about Organic wine is that there is a difference between wine made from organically cultivated grapes and wine that is made organically.  It is for this reason that it is sometimes difficult to pick out organic wines from simply looking at the label. Continue reading

  • Reid & Reid all about it!

    Whitmore & White / August 16, 2018.

    If you’re reading this blog then you’re aware and hopefully enjoying the juniper led bandwagon that is the current ginaissance! In response to this seemingly insatiable desire for gin, it would have been irresponsible of me as a purveyor of fine wine and spirits, not to have guzzled a boatload of the stuff on your behalf. It’s another of my duties here at Whitmore & White that I file under ‘it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it’. Continue reading

  • Félicette Wines

    Whitmore & White / July 31, 2018.

    As is often the case with wine, the label is the first thing that hits you. We can’t think of any other wines out there with a couple of space cats on the label! So what's the story behind the label? In 1963 the French entered the space race and were the first to send a cat travelling into space. Her name was Félicette. The Félicette wines pay homage to their namesake, memorialising a famous cat held in great esteem in France.  Continue reading
