Every month at GlouGlou we shine a spotlight on a different region to celebrate its winemakers and the way in which they interact with the land. So at the end of every month we will be putting together a selection of our favourite wines from each region; some we may have been shouting about, have enjoyed by the glass at GlouGlou, and perhaps a couple of deeper dives that may have slipped the main spotlight, but all guaranteed to showcase what makes each region worth getting excited about.

Offered at a discounted rate, we'll have this six box set delivered to your home so that you can by whisked away to our spotlighted region with each sip from the comfort of your sofa.

Although the price of The Spotlight Case will vary according to the wines chosen each month, it will always be between £90 and £130 and by subscribing you'l save an additional £3.50 off each box set - enough to buy a banging V60 pour-over coffee from PetitGlou to enjoy while you scan the shelves in Iron & Rose or relax after some intensive market shopping.

This October saw GlouGlou shine the spotlight on Northern Italy

White wines:

Latium Morini, 'Campo le Calle' Soave, Veneto, Italy - 

There’s cheap shelf Soave and then there’s real Soave... Made by the Morini family using some partially dried grapes. Their philosophy is based on a love of country life and a passion for vine growing.

Region               - Veneto

Produttori del Gavi, Il Forte, Gavi DOCG, Italy - Situated 40 kilometres from the Ligurian Sea, crossed by the Lemme River near the Ligurian Apennines, Produttori del Gavi lie within the Province of Alessandria, a territory that is uniquely characterised by poor calcareous white soils; ideal for growing the native Cortese grape. This co-op has been going for over 50 years and with over one hundred members and one hundred and fifty hectares of vines. Cortese if managed poorly produces flat and overly acidic wines however Andrea Pancotti and Consultant Mario Redoglia are producing a Gavi that is well balanced with a floral and mineral freshness across an entire co-op, that’s quite a feat!

Country             - Italy
Region               - Piedmont    
Appellation       - Gavi
Variety / Blend - Cortese
Farming            - Organic

Red wines:

Ferdinando Principiano, Barolo del comune di Serralunga d’Alba, Piedmont, Italy - Good Barolo is the epitome of balance - between power and elegance, fruit and structure. Ferdinando farms vineyards on the edge of the Barolo region and achieves this tightrope walk in style. 

Producer           - Ferdinando Principiano
Country             - Italy
Region               - Piedmont    
Appellation       - Langhe
Variety / Blend - Nebbiolo
Farming            - Organic

Tenuta Olim Bauda, Barbera d'Asti, DOCG, La Villa, Piedmont, Italy - This Barbera is a blend of grapes from a few sites across siblings, Dino, Diana and Gianni family farm in the Piedmont hills. It’s made to be fruit forward, chunky but not burly, and the perfect accompaniment to some food - pasta with truffles (the Olim Bauda estate is blessed with a natural crop...) or some salumi. 

Producer           - Tenute Olim Bauda
Country             - Italy
Region               - Piedmont   
Appellation       - Asti
Variety / Blend - Barbera
Farming           - Organic

Angiolino Maule, Rosso Masieri IGT, Veneto, Italy -  

We'd suggest decanting this one. It’s made by Angiolino Maule, one of the pioneers of natural winemaking, totally organic in the vineyards, minimal manipulation in the cellar, just looking for the pure expression of place. And the place is in the Colli Berici, a hilly area of the Veneto in Northern Italy with volcanic soils, using Merlot, Tocai Rosso (the local name for the local Grenache grape) and Cabernet Sauvignon. Beautiful with pasta with sausage and fennel sauce.

Producer         - Angiolino Maule
Country           - Italy
Region             - Veneto
Appellation      - Collio Berici
Variety / Blend - Tocai Rosso, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
