Good evening wine lovers!
Hailing from Italy’s province of Ancona in Marche region, made from rare lacrima grape, this unique red wine is fresh, perfumed and fabulous!

NOSE: Floral bouquet recalls lavender, roses, and violets, over heavier notes of stewed strawberries. MOUTH: vanilla-tinged blueberry with … Continue reading Lacrima Di Morro
I have to confess, over the last decade, wherever we traveled to, we’ve developed a habit of bringing back the food which natives eat and feed their loved ones. Spices from India, salt from Nepal, halvah from Turkey, tomatoes, aubergines, saffron, olive oil and oils from Morocco, artichokes from Spain, wine from France and Spain, coffee from Colombia, jasmine, chickpeas, cucumbers, tomatoes, oranges, pepper and spices from Jordan and dried yogurt from beloved Syria and Israel and the list goes on… Continue reading Travel and Cooking – The Memory Catchers

MOUTH: vanilla, blackcurrant, and blueberries DRINKING: during Nadal – Thiem match in Rome; this time 6-4 … Continue reading Tempranillo & Graciano from Dominio de Fontana
There’s one concert every year that we never miss. No matter where we are, no matter how good New Year’s party was and how capable (having had far too many glasses of wine) we are to listen to classical music. It’s New Year’s Concert in the Vienna Musikverein. Yes folks, it’s on New Year’s Day usually around 10 am. One might think it’s a torture … Continue reading Where to find Vienna in London
If autumn weather caught you by surprise in summer dress or t-shirt and threw freezing rain into your face and if you started to think whether you shouldn’t post yourself by Royal Mail to sunny Australia or New Zealand I tell you – we’re in the same boat. And there are a few things that keep me going through this time of the … Continue reading Three Stories From The Hive
Spain: 4,964 km of coastline and seafood and fish cornucopia. You’ve probably already envisaged us travelling along the Spanish coast or eating fresh fish in some beach shack. Nothing’s more misleading. Kasia was sent to Madrid for long 6 weeks to work intensively on a project. Let’s listen to her story. An exile, I thought initially.
