Vermentino is the classy white grape of Sardinia and Provence. It works a treat in Sicily too, exhibiting here lots of pear and apple fruit, with citrus and floral hints from a splash of Viognier. From an award winning cellar, it's summery fresh.
"Introduce your palate to a new grape with this tasty new addition to our Italian whites"
Leo Bassano Buyer for Italy
In 1958 in Sicily's town of Menfi, 68 winemakers signed a pact to preserve the island's vineyards and thereby a way of life. 61 years later, this cooperative has been named 'Winery of the Year' twice – in 2018 by Vini d’Italia and 2017 by Germany’s Weinwirtschaft. It has also gained top marks in the renowned Gambero Rosso wine guide. With these credentials, its members are keen to export and came to us first. This is their Vermentino – a top white grape of Sardinia that also excels in Sicilian sunshine. The wine is named after the winemaker Andrea Palermo's grandfather, one of the 68 to sign the original pact and means 'land of my grandfather'. With pear, apple and zesty citrus, this is an appetising white. Top solo or with simple seafood.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
