Brad's Wine Subscription Tasting Notes - January 2023

”I have been inspired to work with small, family-owned wineries because in my experience, they produce the best value wines that you can find. These wines are hand-crafted - they have a story about where they are from and how they are made - and it is these wines that I send out every month to our subscribers, wines with beautiful details that I enjoy sharing with people."

Wine buying made simple from only £49 / €54 for 6 bottles with free UK and EU delivery 🍷
