Finish off your summer with iDealwine | Insta photo competition!

We want to eek every last drop of joy from the summer, so here’s a recap of some of our best seasonal content.

  1. Discover the vineyards of the world through our social media:

Travelling has been a bit complicated this year, but we’ve done our best to bring some interesting places to you through the screen. Louis XIV described a certain kind of wine as “wine of the kings, the king of wine”, do you know where such a prestigious drink might be made? Here’s an article for you to get further into the subject if you’re interested! We also headed to the vineyards of Wachau…but are these in Austria or Germany? Our Facebook and Insta pages are bursting with facts to make you think and photos to make you dream…

  1. Articles and recipes

Have you had time to spend in the kitchen recently? If you’re looking for some inspiration, why not try this delicious lemon pappardelle with courgette ribbons recipe, perfect to serve with a white wine from Clos Canarelli in Corsica…another way to hold onto the sunshine for a bit longer.

The summer months have also given us a chance to present some of the team’s newer members: Laure, Henrique and Marion have put together some lovely wine selections for you to enjoy…we hope you enjoy getting to know them, as well!
