Back in 2014, Word of mouth led us to discovering the sensational wines of de la Terre. Being a Sommelier for a high-profile restaurant in the UK, opportunities like this do not pass by easily. Without a doubt, we clearly had to visit! Then, having tasted the entire de la terre range with the winemaker, Tony Prichard, I can only say that our minds were blown away by the quality of his wines. I’m talking about the wow factor that has a lasting impression. When I close my eyes now, I can still “taste” the 2013 Reserve Chardonnay that Tony generously poured. My wife had to come and find me after hours of tasting and fed us Pizza, made by Tony’s wife Kaye, so we could power on with tasting more wines and continue analysing and discussing every aspect of how each was made.
