Bodegas Pingon

A couple of Saturdays ago, Bubble Brothers were in Morton's of Ranelagh, Dublin, to open a few bottles and meet the customers. Morton's fly the flag for us in Dublin by keeping a selection of our wines and also the very popular iKi beer.

On this occasion, however, we were able to lend proceedings a Spanish flavour. We were joined by Enrique García, the ever-cheerful export manager of Bodegas Pingón, our suppliers in the Ribera del Duero in north central Spain.

We've been working with the bodega for a good few years now, and although the confidently fruity, robust Tempranillos of the Ribera del Duero are no longer a novelty here, we're always glad of a chance to show people that there's rather more to Spanish reds than just Rioja.

On the day, Enrique, along with MD of Bubble Brothers, Billy Forrester,

offered a selection of wines, but of course special prominence was given to Bodegas Pingon's Carramimbre brand, with both the semi-crianza Roble and the Crianza grades open for sampling. Sales on the day were brisk, and people were happy to take advantage of a special discount on the Carramimbre wines.

Thank you, Enrique, for making the trip and for sharing your expertise with us and with the customers of Morton's. We look forward to your next visit!

    That beer and cider selection would just make you cry, wouldn't it? Was 97% of their wine Piat D'Or, Black Tower and Blossom Hill?

    Notice how I didn't comment on the surroundings...

    I thought someone else might have something to say about the beerage.

    Let's hope the present austerity will get one or two folk to think for themselves, ie outside the brand, even in D6.

    In D6 one goes to Redmond's, or Deveney's. I'm just miffed at the yawning gap between what upmarket retailers sell by way of wine and beer respectively.
