Curious Wine Chatter

New arrivals: Wither Hills

Fans of our top-selling wine for the last two years, The Ned Sauvignon Blanc, might be interested in the latest addition to our New Zealand range.  Named in the World’s Top 50 Most Desired Wine Brands by Drinks International last year, Wither Hills was founded by none other than The Ned’s Brent Marris.

Budget 2013: the GOOD news!

We'd been warned it would be a bad one but Budget 2013 exceeded expectations both in terms of reductions in personal income and further taxes on outgoings. We'd anticipated an increase in the excise duty on wine but nothing like the €1 on every bottle as of midnight last night.

Mike's Wines of 2012

Not a lot of people know this, but Mike's greatest achievement was winning a gold medal with the Irish fencing team at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. He's also a Michelin-starred chef, having worked as Executive Head Chef at Le Meurice in Paris in the late 90s.

Rose's Wines of 2012

Rose joined the Curious Wines team this year, bringing with her years of experience in hospitality, marketing and PR. She has played an important role in expanding the commercial side of the business, as well as buying into the values of a company that prides itself on making curious people happy.

Matt's Wines of 2012

As his parents and siblings can attest, Matt was a difficult child growing up. Excitable, restless and easily agitated, he was nicknamed ‘the not-so-genius Evil Genius’ by his younger brother, David, who's revenge was exacted on Matt’s stag weekend back in April (pictured).

New mixed cases from Curious

We launched curiouswines. ie in 2008 with the goal of making buying wine online as simple as possible. Central to this was our selection of pre-mixed cases where new customers could try us out, and established customers could always go back for the best value, carefully chosen selections in our portfolio.
