The pandemic may have hit pause for the hospitality sector, but vision and innovation still abound. Conor Duggan, Neil O’Reilly and Conor Mulligan quickly turned their hands and expert noses to creating Boxofwine.ie, Ireland’s first “tailored to your taste” wine subscription company last year. Now the trio have teamed up with the iconic Wineport Lodge to create a very special sommeliers selection.
Wineport Lodge by Boxofwine.ie takes wine lovers on a journey of discovery to a world of wines not available in supermarkets and stores, expanding the palate and tantalising the tastebuds. This bespoke offering is now available on www.Boxofwine.ie at €59.95 per month and delivered conveniently and safely straight to your door in a beautifully presented box — the ultimate treat!
The box also contains food pairing suggestions from the award-winning Wineport Lodge Restaurant. How about a Malbec paired with a mouth-watering confit duck leg, celeriac remoulade and black cherry gel, or a Cabernet matched with a wild mushroom and butternut squash risotto? Perhaps a Chardonnay with prawns, avocado and rocket in a lime and ginger dressing?
Tasting cards with intriguing information on the vineyards are included in the specially curated boxes, including flavours to identify in the wines. The wines are all organic and selected from sustainably farmed vineyards, where an emphasis is placed on staying true to the terroir of their regions. Your port-to-port journey of discovery begins with some celebrated wines from South of France, and each month will take your tastebuds around the globe and back.
Each month, the sommeliers at Boxofwine.ie and Wineport lodge will curate a box of three highly regarded wines, changing with each delivery. The concept provides an element of surprise every month with new selections to enjoy. It is a great way to learn about a world of wines far beyond what is available in in retail stores. Full-bodied, flirty or flinty, there is something inherently dignified and sophisticated about being a wine connoisseur. See www.boxofwine.ie to subscribe.
