Mountain wine

A. J. LINN

...mention of Mountain Wine. Unfortunately he didn’t think much of it but didn’t like Spain anyway. Nevertheless his book is worth a read, and any student of 18th century English travellers in Spain, such as George Borrow and Richard Ford, will find the ... unimaginative Wiltshire clergyman’s writings an interesting match. Around the same period the famous French traveller, Teofilo Gautier, hated Malaga’s gazpacho (’only fit for dogs’) but enjoyed the local white wine.Townsend found himself in a province that was ... hugely productive. Back then it was Spain’s second-largest wine region, and the product, known as Mountain, was very popular in England and North America.

Olympic wine games

A. J. LINN

...cricket are proposed for Tokyo 2020, and, bizarre as it may seem, so is chess, trampoline, hula-hoop, pogo stick and pole dancing. The conclusion is that almost anything goes, so why not wine tasting? Last month's international competition organised by ... that countries that produced wine tended to do far worse than those that did not. 'It is as if they never taste wine from other countries....' was the sledgehammer comment, referring predictably to the French, although a little unfair on Spain which had ... won first place in 2015.

Adios to another wine dynasty

ANDREW J. LINN

WINE OF THE WEEK Blanc Pescador A real favourite of the value-for-money brigade, this Catalan white wine is known as vino de aguja, literally 'needle wine' in reference to its slightly-sparkling nature. Made first in the 1960s, it is an unerring ... he deal, there were Chinese waiting in the wings. Not a happy ending, but one that is becoming frequent in the wine business.

The wine biz

A. J. LINN

Successfully exporting wine, however good and value-for-money, depends on many factors, above all the destination country. Speaking as someone who had the exclusive distribution in the UK of Spanish brands like Barbadillo, José de Soto, López ... like Amazon and investors like Warren Buffet cannot break down the barriers. Last week Amazon announced it was closing Amazon Wine. This is the third attempt of the all-powerful web retailer to use its massive client base to sell wine. The idea is ... standard Amazon: customers order their wine online and the orders are fulfilled by the producer direct.

ANDREW J. LINN

Things certainly were going that way and last ... year Spain was number five on the country import list.
