A VERY WARM WELCOME INTO MY DINGLE WINE CELLAR.
The idea of creating the cellar was borne from my passion for all things wine related. I embarked on my adventure nearly twenty years ago when, perhaps, wine wasn’t as fashionable or sought after as it is presently. Gaining a rudimentary knowledge of the main grape varieties set me on my way, wanting more, asking more, until I found that I was spending quite a lot of time researching wine. And do you know what? I learned a huge amount. I did a WSET introductory course, moved on to Level 1 then swiftly on to Level 2. There came a lull in proceedings for a few years as priorities were organised, but eventually I returned to learning to get my Level3 certification in 2013.
The advantages of having a good understanding of wine is being in a position to offer this knowledge and share my passion for wine. I work hard at bringing new and exciting suggestions to my clients. I cater for all budgets, hoping to bring to you that “special bottle” that you may not have tried, or were a little unsure of. I am available for any wine related questions most days in my Centra store in Dingle, and would love to have you call in for a wine chat or recommendation.
I carry a range that, strictly speaking, is not the normal high street fayre. The portfolio has been carefully put together with a great emphasis on small, boutique wineries who are producing the most fantastic wines on the planet. From Sting’s “Il Pallagio” winery in Tuscany, producing spectacular organic Chianti, to the stellar Chivite winery in Navarra, there most definitely is a wine here for everyone. I have a great offering of organic, vegan friendly, biodynamic, sulphite free, and natural wine here.
If there is a particular wine that you require that I don’t have, then I am more than happy to source it on your behalf. I have developed strong personal relationships both here in Ireland, and indeed, further afield in the wine business and can leverage these connections on your behalf. Wine is diverse, there is no portfolio covering everything, so just ask.
I hope you enjoy what I have to offer here, have a look, ask a question, try something new today. Be assured always that we source great wines for you.
