  • Cannonball - Dive into the wines!

    Posted on May 8, 2013 by Enotriaadmin

    Harriet is just back from visiting our latest US partners

    Our new Cannonball Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Sonoma/Mendocino area of California  most definitely look the part with their quirky, bold packaging and they also display outstanding quality for the price-point, so my mission when I visited team Cannonball earlier this month was to uncover ...

  • Paving the way to greendom

    Posted on April 30, 2013 by alice

     
    The Ivy Club seemed an apt location for the Drinks Business Green Awards 2013.  Well, it was when my impression of the Ivy was a restaurant covered in ivy. I soon realised however, that my normal office attire put me well into the “under-dressed” category as we proceeded up the swanky glass staircase and got ...

  • Under the volcano

    Posted on April 24, 2013 by Enotriaadmin

    Mount Etna: 3,400 metres high, Europe's most active volcano, and its highest. A symbol of Sicily since ancient times (when a Cyclops was reputed to live in a cave on its flanks), and one of its most exciting wine regions nowadays.
    When the vine-louse phylloxera tore through the vineyards of Burgundy, Bordeaux and down through the ...

  • Have chef, will travel

    Posted on April 19, 2013 by Enotriaadmin

    Gary, Chiara and Martin

    This week was artichoke week in Sicily (what, you mean you didn’t know? Ed) where Mandrarossa’s head chef Bonetta dell’Oglio rounded up an elite brigade of Sicilian ladies from Menfi to teach people how to cook seasonal produce.
    Enotria got in on the action and invited some of our top Mandrarossa customers to send their chefs out from the UK to share their knowledge and to learn with “le signore della brigata”. Anyone who’s been lucky enough to visit Sicily will tell you that the local traditional cooking is some of the best food you will ever eat, so the visitors were pretty excited to be there.

    Martin Henley, Head Chef from Cedar Court Grand in York, Chiara Massone, from Aberdeen restaurant Rustico, and Gary Bell from Enotria stalwarts Salvo’s were all put to work in the very rustic kitchen at Mandrarossa’s cookery school.
    Lunch in the Sicilian sunshine was a very happy affair and the UK team didn’t let the side down, faithfully following the local recipes. They didn’t have much time to pause though, as they were on cookery duties for Settesoli head honchos in the evening too!
    The cookery school is one of the ways in which Mandrarossa demonstrate that their company is all about the community which it such a big part of – some 70% of Menfi families are involved in some way with the winery. There is no better way to appreciate what Mandrarossa stands for than with a delicious plate of home prepared Sicilian food - and a glass of something cool and refreshing from the winery!
