20/10/17 - Autumn News

Autumn News
We have been doing this for the past 20 years- twice a year in the early days- but the Autumn “Tour de France” has been an annual event. What do we do for a bit of a break? We get on the Ferry to France and drive almost 4,000 kilometres, visiting some of our producers at the end of the grape harvest. There is usually an air of tired but happy calm at the vineyards and a feeling that despite all the adverse climatic conditions, they have managed to stay optimistic.
This Autumn there have been some very small yields due to late frosts and hail in many areas and now we receive the news of the terrible fires that have caused huge destruction in Portugal. It is shocking to see how badly it has affected Casa de Mouraz.
I can only hope that the wine drinking public spare a thought for all the hard work and dedication that goes on in the fields and the cellars.
We are proud to be able to support these hard working producers, most of them small family businesses.

28/07/17 - Twenty Years a Pouring!

Having written a piece back in May this year "Twenty Years a Pouring" commenting on and describing some of the comings and goings of Mary Pawle Wines during the 20 years that we have been in business, I see to my dismay that it has disappeared into some internet black-hole, taking some other news items with it. To my embarrassment my most recent "NEWS" item seems to be January 2014!! "Where have the years gone?" you might well ask!

03/01/14 - Happy New Year

Mary & Ivan would like to thank all our loyal customers and our wonderful producers for their support in 2013 and wish you a very happy and peaceful Christmas and a healthy, positive and prosperous New Year.

22/09/12 - Autumn Equinox

Autumn is here and we are preparing for our annual drive to France. It's a time for visiting some of our Producer friends, catching the end of the grape harvest and checking out a few new wines. It's a sort of Vintners Vacation and involves a lot of driving but always a pleasure.
I had a lovely visit back to the Ennis Wine Club last week and was glad to see that they are still going strong. I visited the Wines From Spain at the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin on 13th September and was glad to have the opportunity to attend the Cava seminar presented by David Webb.
The new Price List is just about finished and will be ready by the end of the month.

22/06/12 - Midsummer

It’s hard to believe that it’s actually Midsummer when the sky is so gloomy and it’s so chilly and damp! No sign of “That Summer Feeling” yet. Oh well, let’s see what cheering news we have to share.

We recently had a visit from Caro Feely from Chateau Haut Garrigue in Saussignac, France. Caro was launching and promoting her book “Grape Expectations” and the new range of wines under the name Terroir Feely. She gave an excellent wine tasting at the Grain Store at Ballymaloe house along with Tomas Clancy who entertained us with a brief history of the Irish Wine Geese. We also had a lovely evening of tasting and talking at Manning’s Emporium in Ballylickey.

In July Kenmare will host the Kenmare Food Carnival. This will be held throughout the town on 13th/14th/15th July when the town will showcase the very best of local produce and culinary expertise. I am really looking forward to presenting one of the Wine Tastings and Talks that will be held at the Lime Tree Restaurant. This will be on Sunday afternoon (15th)and will be an opportunity for people to learn a little about what is meant by “organic wines”, taste some wines and participate in a simple quiz. Prizes will be of a vinous nature!! While this is a FREE event, places are limited so booking is essential. All information on www.kenmarefoodcarnival.com
