D. Byrne & Co. | Award Winning Fine Wine Merchants

Wines Of The Year

Each year the spittoons come out and everyone at the shop gets their heads together and chooses our red and white wines of the year. After several weeks of red stained teeth and heated debate the announcement is made. Our criteria for choice are always the same, they must represent both the best value for money and be a good illustration of the depth of range of wines we show case to the public.

White Wine Of The Year

D. Byrne & Co. White Wine Of The Year £5.99

Diez Siglos Rueda Verdejo

This really is a wonderful wine, and one which we simply couldn't resist naming as our new White Wine of the Year. Very clean and filled with tangy citrus fruits, this is an amazingly fine flavourful wine. The perfect modern dry white which is unashamedly fruity, elegant and lengthy.

Red Wine Of The Year

D. Byrne & Co. Red Wine Of The Year £5.99

Juan Gil Pedrera Monastrell

The excellent Bodegas Juan Gill produce some of Jumilla's finest wines and they are an absolute genius with the local Monastrell grape. This is a wonderfully pure and open example of the Monastrell, with ripe and juicy bramble and plum fruit flavours, just a hint of fresh spice and a supple, juicy finish.
