The Wines of Austria

In recent times, Austrian wine has been experiencing a surge of interest around the world. In Australia, consumers are confidently discussing the merits of grüner veltliner and blaüfrankisch where five years ago only wine aficionados were aware of the particularities there. In the US too, there is a heightened awareness; exports are on the rise and Austrian wine is enjoying a purple patch. More

German Riesling Renaissance

In December 2013, Wines of Germany announced in London that it had officially recognised six Riesling Fellows “for their dedication, passion and love of German Riesling.” Sounds like a bit of PR? If so, it is sorely needed, for German Riesling has been hard to sell. Aficionados may be saying that quality is now high, but the image stays somewhat stuck in the past. More

The Summer of Riesling

With Christmas and New Year behind us, it’s time to put away the bubbly and boisterousness and settle back in to a more moderate tempo. Lighter food makes you feel better in the heat and you’ll want something fun to wash it down, but with the long tail of the Australian summer stretching out before us, what you most require is a refreshing wine you can return to again and again. And what could be better than riesling, for so many reasons. More

The French Connection in Napa: Wine & Architecture

Since the famous, so-called Judgement of Paris in 1976 when Californian wines tasted blind against the cream of France’s production came out top, Europeans have had to digest the fact that Napa in particular is up there with the Medoc or the Cote d’Or. With great wines and restaurants, and a climate much nicer than the one we are blessed with in Britain, in fact it is hard not to be seduced. More

The Scenic Route to Tuscan Shiraz

It is not often that you come across a little known and exciting pocket of shiraz. But a spot of early autumn tourism in Italy led to just that. It was a bit off the beaten wine track, and, like stumbling on a cache of porcini for a risotto, was an unexpected and delightful surprise. More

Seasonal Delivery Notes

At all times we aim to ensure speedy delivery. This minimises the risk of situations occurring in transit that could damage wine or compromise its quality. We monitor weather conditions at points of origin and destination and do not despatch wine on days when the temperature reaches or is forecast to reach 30 degrees Celsius. Despite this, it is important to note that Langton’s insurance does not cover heat damage, should it occur. More
