What 12 wines could possibly give you the ideal introduction to WineSpark? I had to think long and hard about this one! 

I'm glad to say I've come up with a collection of amazing wines that proudly represents the ethos of WineSpark and its winemakers.

Not forgetting the 6 months of sweat and tears it’s taken to get here :)

You’ll find a wide range of styles here - from big, strong reds to light and elegant ones; from crisp whites to rich and refined. Some fizz and rosé too!

But you’re also guaranteed unbelievable quality and passionate, authentic winemaking right through it.

Here’s what you’ll get:

  1. Cillar de Silos Crianza 2018 - a rich, polished Ribera del Duero which is the house wine in high-end restaurants across northern Spain
  2. Tim Smith Bugalugs Barossa Shiraz 2020 - it’s classic Aussie Shiraz - ripe, bold and powerful, with plenty of sweet dark fruit and a savoury edge.
  3. Meltwater Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019 - Sancerre lovers rejoice - this is a generous, textured, easy drinking style of Sauvignon, that’s just hitting its stride now
  4. La Mateo Rioja Tempranillo Vendimia 2017 - it’s a smooth, velvety and decadent red... which slips down effortlessly and gets better with each and every sip.
  5. Mantel Blanco Verdejo 2020 - my guilty pleasure white - crisp, refreshing and amazing value
  6. Domaine Saint Andrieu Provence Rosé 2020 - an organic, bee-friendly rosé from a seriously underrated Provence estate
  7. Cordero Innav Arneis 2020 - a super refreshing white wine - it’s floral, peachy, and has loads of pear and apple flavours going on too.
  8. Carinus Chenin Blanc 2020 - a rich yet easy-drinking white from Swartland, South Africa from one of the country’s best growers
  9. Marchiori Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut 2020 - characterful, artisanal and delicious Prosecco (yes you read that right) - made by hand from five ancient grape varieties, from steep hilly sites with a wonderful mixture of soils
  10. Jones Winery Shiraz 2017 - this Rutherglen Shiraz is from 50+ year old vines and is plush, concentrated and powerful, with a gentle kick of pepper and spice
  11. Stepp Pinot Noir Vom Buntsandstein 2018 - German Pinot is making serious waves in the wine industry and here is one of Germany’s best winemakers at the top of his game
  12. Pequenas Parcelas Malbec 2017 - a powerful red from an immaculate vineyard high up in the Uco Valley in Mendoza.

    Excellent wines and value

    Three wines in and all fabulous so far. The South African Chenin Blanc and the German Pinot Noir - wonderful. Arrived very quickly and it’s great to have a nice variety of wines. Thanks!

    3 bottles in and will def buy more

    Since my direct orders from other EU countries got stopped (apparently there are Revenue ppl doing more checks since Brexit), this came exactly at the right time for me. Read about WineSpark on LinkedIn (of all places) and ordered the started kit. Three bottles of red in, I'm a happy camper. With the Jones from AU def my favourite so far.
    Looking forward to some Christmas options -. A nice box of 6 different bubbles from across the world would be amazing. Also would love to see Magnum options, partly for the upcoming dinner parties, partly to always have a nice stash of my personal favorites.

    Thanks for the great feedback Thomas, I've noticed that our prices our often lower than in the producing country itself with the €10 monthly membership, which is cool

    Thanks for the ideas on Christmas we might just be able to help you here!!

    Like other retired people, I guess, we drink a little less these days, but look for better quality (don't get me wrong, this doesn't stop us drinking wine every day!) which is why what you're doing suits us down to the ground. Your business model is excellent and you plainly know what you're talking about. Even the German pinot noir was lovely - an amazing pic. Tried all three reds in the six-pack - delicious and nicely individual. Great value. Well done.

    A gorgeous selection of wines.

    Fabulous variety of wines in the starter case, many of which I would never have chosen. Incredible value and quality. I cannot recommend Winespark highly enough and have passed on the details to my many wine loving friends! A really clever innovative idea that delivers top notch wines straight to your door, many of which we would just not find or try otherwise. I am delighted with the service and the calibre of the wines and wish Eamon every success- highly deserved! Looking forward to sampling and learning more.

    Thank you so much Sarah Jane - I'm thrilled to read this!

    Just so great!

    Never joined a wine club before. Liked the way Eamon has this setup and his approach as he explained it. Park your cynicism and try the wines. I’m just ordering next box of 6. Wines are so good, so normal. Happy to stay im the club…

    Thank you David, so happy to have you on board!

    The start of an epic journey ;)

    Only one bottle in so far but it was fantastic and something I wouldn’t have picked out myself, which is the whole point;) Furthermore, if each of the wines are as good as the first, this starter case will provide exceptional value.

    Top marks for delivery, which was exceptionally quick, particularly as we live deep in the south west of the country.

    An excellent experience all round thus far and I look forward to our next order;)

    Ah thanks Colin you made my week with this feedback!
