July Offers (for the heatwave!)

Real Deals on Real Wine for July

We have read a medium term forecast predicting a heatwave in the second half of July, so in the spirit of positive thinking (also called by some here at OTG HQ as baseless optimism), we are focussing on some nice summer wines for the month ahead.

Le Scapitozze Bianco – RRP €11 -  now €9
A blend of trebbiano with a splash of chardonnay – easy, fruity summery white.

Le Scapitozze Rosso – RRP €11 - now €9
100% Sangiovese – but with no harsh edges - soft, fruity, easy-drinking. Great value.

A beautiful, bottle, a beautiful colour, a beautiful wine and now at a beautiful price. The nicest Rose you will get this summer. Close your eyes and think of the Cote d'Azur....strawberries and cream, fresh and just fruity enough. Food, no food, it doesn't matter - this stuff just disappears.

Pasqua Passimento – RRP €17 - now  €13
Just in case it remains cool.....we have done this before, but it is too good not to repeat. Smooth, chocolatey, full-bodied hearty red from the Veneto. It never gets too hot in Ireland does it...?

Thinking outside the barrel...

In our constant drive to offer value for money without compromising on quality, we have just started selling wine direct from barrels. The idea is that you fill the bottle direct from the barrel in the shop into our 1 litre or 1/2 litre bottles.
You can buy the tried and trusted Domaine Grauzan Merlot or Chardonnay for €10 per litre instead of €10/€11 per 750ml bottle - a saving of 25%!
Buy a bottle for €3 (1ltr) or €2(500ml) and the just bring it back for a refill and always have your house wine available in a unique and affordable way.
It has been flying out in the shop on its first weekend, the barrels look great and people like the wine, get a kick out of the concept and appreciate the value!
