The González Byass wine story began in Jerez in 1835, when young entrepreneur Manuel María González started out as a wine trader. Rapid success led him into wine production, helped by his uncle José Ángel, known affectionately as Tio Pepe, after whom he named his first solera. Almost 200 years later it is still very much a family concern and is now in the hands of the fifth generation of winemakers. Today the family owns 14 wineries, producing premium wines and spirits in Spain, Chile, and Mexico, where they are fully committed to preserving the natural environment for the generations to come.
González Byass UK is a subsidiary of the historic González Byass business, distributing a considerable portfolio of wines and spirits from Spain, as well as wines from a carefully selected handful of complementary brands from around the globe.
“At González Byass UK we all share a passion – for great wine, great service, great experiences, but most of all for great relationships. We love what we do, and there’s nothing better than sharing a great glass of wine and good times with customers, suppliers and colleagues. “
Register now for Furmint February 6.0!
Those of us in the wine trade know there’s no better way to escape the dreary February weather than with a tasting event — and Furmint February 6.0 is the perfect occasion to do just that!
Furmint is Hungary’s star grape, but this year winemakers will also be pouring a range of varieties including Olaszrizling and Hárslevelű at the tasting at Painter’s Hall on February 27th.
If you’re familiar with the brilliant wines of Hungary, you’ll know that this promises a wealth of exciting wines to taste. And if you curious about what Hungary has to offer, this will leave you a fanatic for life. What’s more, our friends at @disznokotokaj will be there to pour a selection of stunning wines from their range.
The fantastic Caroline Gilby MW will lead a masterclass on Furmint & Friends, introducing tasters to how Furmint works in blends and showcasing its friends like Hárslevelű, Sárgamuskotály and the great Central European grape Olaszrizling and more (email email@example.com to book a place, first come first served!!).
“Furmint February 6.0 is nearly here and while awareness of Furmint as the next great white grape is growing, there still more to do to showcase this versatile and classy grape. From fine sparklers to complex single vineyard expressions, and of course the sweet and botrytis wines – especially Szamorodni and Aszú, there aren’t many grapes that can do all this with such exciting quality and most importantly they are delicious.” - Caroline Gilby MW

Celebrating International Syrah Day by shining the spotlight on Groenekloof 🌄
Situated near Darling in South Africa’s Western Cape, roughly 50km north of Cape Town, the stunning region of Groenekloof is the home of Neil Ellis GroeneKloof Syrah. It’s made up of a series of hills running parallel to the ocean Atlantic ocean, and vines here benefit from the Atlantic breezes and the increase in altitude, cooling temperatures and allowing Syrah to really express itself.
@neilelliswines source their Syrah from low-yielding bush vines, and because the soils here consist of decomposed granite and clay, they allow for great water retention, meaning no supplementary irrigation is needed. in more recent years, Groenekloof has been recognised for its potential for quality wines, and it’s now famed for its ability to produce elegant and sophisticated Syrah.
If you’re looking for a bottle of Syrah to enjoy this weekend, make it this one!🍇🍷
