On the road with Nigel

Cricket club lunch at the Budock Vean Hotel was a great success. It saw us drinking some cherry-ripe, grippy Le Vignate Montepulciano d'Abruzzo - always a good rustic glassful with some excellent roast beef. Others enjoyed the ever consistent, gooseberry-infused Domaine de Valensac Sauvignon Blanc.  

Once again we raised lots of money for the Cricket Club and I even managed to win a bottle of Tesco Champagne which Issy will enjoy even if I don’t. No disrespect to Mr Tesco or Mr Thomas (who donated it) but I just don’t get much pleasure from Champagne full stop, appreciate its finer points – yes but not actually enjoy it.

Dinner at Samphire on Friday was excellent by the way as was a bottle of Faunus Nero d’Avola.

Le Vignate Montepulciano d’Abruzzo in the shop now at £6.30 a bottle or case of 12 £69.60
