• Clever chap

    Ciaran Devane, retiring chief executive of Mc Millan Nurses, not only won a wine tasting at a friends Ball, but then re-sold the tickets and invited his friends to be entertained and educated over several glasses of wine!

    Charlie with Kay Burley and Ciaran Devane.

    With spectacular views over the Thames from the Albert embankment, a small group sniffed and slurped 8 very  different wines from around the world.

    They all tried to trip me up with leading questions, but wily old wine fox that I am, I simply helped them on the wonderful journey of finding some thing you like that you are unfamiliar with.

    The Wine of the night was the Journee de Mistral Ventoux Grenache from the Rhone Valley, A lovely deep ruby colour, smelling of autumn fruits and a hint of spice on the nose, lovely stuff!

    The Sumaridge Merlot Rose caught some of the guests out but was chosen by the winner Sue Pollard as her prize for being the best taster of the evening. We all learnt a lot whilst having great fun.

  • Charlie the wine bowls Jimmy over

    Hot from the wine Press!

    Jimmy Anderson,England cricket's most prolific wicket taker, was put to the test last tonight (16th October) on Clare Baldings Tv Show which was broadcast on BT Sport 1 at 10:15pm.

    Faced with 3 wines to be tasted blind with fellow panellists Danny Cipriani of Sale Sharks Rugby, and Arsenals Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Jimmy much enjoyed our very own Schalk Burgers Welbedacht estate Hattrick and Cricket pitch Reds.

    Our man on the spot Director Simon Halliday, himself a sporting legend, enjoyed the banter as the 3 lads sniffed and slurped their way through 6 reds, Jimmy, who is planning to launch his own label wine later this year, now knows what he is up against.

  • Meerkat Wines in the UK

    That's right! The eagerly arrival of Meerkat Wines are know available exclusively in the UK at Charlie The Wine. And to tell you the truth we are absolutely ecstatic!


    For those of you who are unaware of Meerkat Wines, here is a brief introduction into this fabulous wine producer.

    Meerkat is a family-run wine producer who grow, produce and bottle their wine from the Welbedacht Wine Estate in Wellington, South Africa. Welbedacht is situated in one of the most picturesque wine regions which is ideally suited to the cultivation of world class wines. Welbedacht is home to and Meerkat is run by possibly one of the most famous sporting families in the country.... the Burger family. Both Schalk Burger Senior and Schalk Burger Junior have represented their country in rugby union, with Schalk Burger Junior being awarded arguably one of the greatest rugby union awards; the International Rugby Player of the Year in 2004.

    One would think the Burgers' rugby mania would automatically dictate a label dedicated to the game. Not so! The Burger family wanted to create an image for their wine that is perceived as fun and witty, and so Meerkat Wines was born. Sticking to this amusing name, the Burger's have attached an effective slogan to their wine, which is labeling Meerkat Wine as "South Africa's Most Gregacious Wine" meaning it is very fond of company. Here at Charlie The Wine, we love how the Burger Family have closely linked their image to the familiar characteristics of a meerkat itself.

    Meerkat's wines are extremely good value-for-money along with being incredibly versatile allowing them to quickly become best sellers. With an impressive award winning selection of White wines, Red wines, Rose wines and Blends, I am positive that you will be a massive fan of "South Africa's Most Gregarious Wine" in no time at all.

    So keep your eyes peeled, as the unveiling of Meerkat to Charlie The Wine is very, very soon.

    Forever Thirsty.
