The Week wines: Chosen with Confidence


    Each month our wine editor Bruce Palling works with one of our six wine merchants to pull together an exclusive selection of wine for readers of The Week. 

    Each wine can be purchased as a full 12-bottle case or there are three mixed case options to consider. The prices are unavailable elsewhere and come with free UK mainland delivery

    This month, Bruce has selected six wines from wine merchant Private Cellar. 

    "I have been buying wines from Andrew Gordon for nearly 30 years, yet for one reason or another, I hadn’t made the journey to visit him in Cambridgeshire until this summer, when I took the train to Ely to visit the glorious cathedral, before making my way to Private Cellar. This thriving business has ten senior staff specialising in all the major wine regions of the world. This means that virtually every vineyard on their lists has been visited by a staff member. This adds to the confidence the team have when they choose a wine. What with the uncertainty we face post-Brexit, it is reassuring to know that Andrew and his team will be doing everything in their power to maintain their supply of first rate wines at modest prices. More and more, a wine merchant has to search beyond the predictable and regular suppliers to find something that is both special and excellent value — something Private Cellar have managed to achieve.

    You can read my full tasting notes over at TheWeekWines.com, and if you still can't decide which to buy then the mixed case offers great value, with two of each bottle for only £160. As always, prices are exclusive to readers of The Week and you’ll get FREE UK delivery."
