Dean's January Wine Box
Dean's January Wine Box
Every Month Dean will Sit down with Haar's Sommelier Ewen. Dean and Ewen will create a box containing 6 wines which work perfectly with Deans style of food and ethos. From British sparking to beautiful reds from Tuscany this box has been selected by Dean and will showcase his travels and areas in which he lived in Europe.
You will find mainly old world wines inside our monthly boxes along with some British. The reason for this is simple. Carbon footprint. Dean feels Old world wines have everything to offer so doesn't feel the need to go further afield than Europe. Liberty Wine our wine supplier also goes the extra mile and offsets the carbon footprint of any bottle of wine shipped into our country from Europe so not only are they supplying amazing small producer wines they also look after the planet.
Dean and Ewen will sit down once and month and record a tasting video talking about the wine and the region it comes from and the reason why they have selected it for our Monthly Box.
