Why?
Most customers have this item on a regular delivery, so we’ll send this along for you every four weeks automatically. That way you won’t have to set yourself any reminders to do so. Brilliant.
Join us for a deep dive into the wonderful world of organic wine. Every month our wine guru Honey Spencer puts together a new, tempting trio of themed organic tipples and provides in-depth tasting notes to help you separate your tannins from your bouquets.

For this month’s wine club we return to Italy, or Enotria – ‘The Land of Wine’ as the Greeks quite aptly put it. With a name like, that it might not come as much of a surprise that out of the 10,000 varieties around the globe, 1,000 of them can be found within the slim form of Italy – that infamous over-knee boot from the cover of Pretty Woman. From the very top of the boot down to the bottom of the heel and tips of the toes, Italy is veritably crammed with members of the vinous family, from obscure indigenous varieties that have yet to be officially registered, to globe-trotting classics like Chardonnay, Merlot, and Pinot Noir. Native varieties such as Primitivo (aka Zinfandel), Sangiovese, Barbera, and Fiano have voyaged outside of their turf and found natural homes in places like Australia and North America, adding to the diverse, global viticultural landscape. This month, we highlight the courageous work of Italian organic juggernauts Mont’Albano, as well as taste through some of their wines made with varieties you’ve likely tried in blends, but rarely as varietal expressions. Saluti!

Mont'Albano Bardolino Chiaretto 2018 (75cl)
Bardolino is a magical place, found on the Eastern side of Lake Garda in the Veneto region. I once stumbled upon it and spent a very happy afternoon hopping from place to place, eating pistachio gelato, admiring the unusual pergola vines sprawled over rooftops and, of course, sampling my fair share of the local wines. This soft, yet lively rosé is made with Venetian resident Corvina, which is also one of the key varieties used in neighbouring Valpolicella for their eponymous rosso. Notes of clementine peel and tamarind on the nose lead through to redcurrant and a touch of white blossom on the finish. The nice, crunchy acidity in this rosé makes it a good match with food. Keep it light and fresh by seeking out the Thai Crab, Avocado and Grapefruit Salad recipe on our website.
Mont'Albano Garganella (75cl)
Originally a tiny, five hectare family estate in Italy’s Northern Friuli-Venezia Guilia region, winegrower and visionary Mauro Braidot was the first in the region to begin working organically in 1985. Over the years, he has grown a diverse portfolio of like-minded vineyard owners from North to South, who work organically and allow Mont’Albano to purchase their grapes. This squeaky clean and vivacious frizzante, crafted in Veneto, is made with local Garganella (more commonly known as Garganega), the principal grape permitted in Soave wine. A fresh aperitif and a great alternative to a dry Prosecco. Pair with any Summer snack you please. This fizz is the ultimate all-rounder. Why not try our Summery Courgette Chips for starters? You’ll find the recipe on our website.
Mont'Albano Primitivo 2018 (75cl)
Red wine lovers will most likely have encountered a Primitivo or two: either the often dry, spicy version as we have it here from Italy’s Southern Puglia region, or its somewhat more dolce version from California. This version is delightfully dry and exudes the rustic charm that many Southern reds seem to exhibit so well. Despite being capable of a fuller form, this Primitivo settles itself into a medium body. It comes packed with concentrated bramble fruits and tart fruit pastilles, a firm line of tannin and a touch of white pepper on the finish. Wonderful with red meats, straight off the summer barbecue.
