Mine eyes have seen the glory of the pricing of Bordeaux (‘09 that is…)

Jul. 1st 2010

Figeac_1996Back in April, I enjoyed a very good tasting of Bordeaux 2009. Very good indeed in fact. So good I was worried about the prices. Well, here cometh the day and the prices and I’m still taking copious doses of oxygen. How can this be sustainable?

New Website Software

May. 30th 2010

We’ve updated the software that powers the website.

It’s brought a whole new set of features like:

  • Real-Time stock updates so you can see how many bottles are immediately available
  • Recently viewed products on the detailed information pages, so you can go back to other items of interest quickly
  • A simpler and quicker check out
  • Post code look up for both the Invoice and Delivery Addresses

It’s also got some very funky back room things that are going to make my life quite a lot easier too!

Why not go and have a look at the West Mount Wine website….

I’ve been underblogging since Christmas

Feb. 21st 2010

You’ll have noticed that things have been a little quiet on here since Christmas. Just been snowed under with all sorts of stuff. Still, you can follow what we’re doing by following us on West Mount Wine Twitter or by looking us up on Facebook.

It also makes a lot of sense to check our On-line Wine Merchant pages for great offers and fantastic wines for every occasion.

Or alternatively why not book a Wine Tasting Event where you can enjoy learning about wine in a fun and relaxed environment.

I promise we’ll be back blogging soon.

Christmas looks to be late this year

Dec. 18th 2009

Things have been very busy over the last couple of weeks here at West Mount Wine. It looks as though Christmas started late this year though. Last year, November was really busy and it became a little quieter in December. This year looks like it’s the other way around.

Still, there’s time to order from our great range of wines. The last order date for Christmas will be 14:00 on Tuesday 22nd december 2009. Be quick….!

Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc

Aug. 27th 2009

A customer yesterday was looking to buy a typical New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. She had browsed the Web site and chosen some Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc. What a great choice, but…

She’d callled to arrnage deliver and when I started talking to her, it transpired that she was really looking for a “classic” SB and Section 94 is absolutely not that.

Made as a barrel fermented Sauvignon, probably more in the Bordeaux rather than Marlborough style, this would have been a bit of a (potentially good) shock to the system!
