Earle Wines

Earle Wines  is an independent family wine merchant based Harrogate, North Yorkshire. John Jacobs of Earle Wines forges close associations with mainly small family owned wine producers and their vineyards to bring  quality wines to the UK market. Most of the wines are exclusive to them and cannot be found elsewhere on the high street or through larger retail outlets. Although they specialise in French wines, they also have many excellent wines from other innovative wine producing countries. Their selection not only includes thought provoking wines for ‘every day’ drinking but also rare fine wines, which greatly reflect the variety, value and quality of wines which have been their hallmark for the last 40 years.

The attention to detail is evident in the final products they sell which would be well suited to be stored in A & W Moore’s hand crafted wine racks www.wineracks.co.uk . The vines are grown with little or no use of chemical treatments or fertilisers, and in most cases the producers tend their vines by hand at all stages of the growing and harvesting processes.

Their full selection of wines can be seen on their website earlewines.com or Tel. 01423330900

A&W Moore’s Top 5 English Sparkling Wines

English sparkling wines have come a long way in recent years; once champagne was considered the only fizz worth its weight, but gradually we’ve started to discover the treasure trove of excellent vineyards that are here on our doorstep. With summer fast approaching, there’s no better time to put a bottle of bubbly on ice, so we’ve put our heads together to come up with our favourite selection of English sparkling wines, just in time for your garden party:

How to Choose the Perfect Wine Rack

Wine racks are a fantastic way to store wine, and great options are available on any budget. As well as looking good, they, along with good temperature control, will help to keep your wine in optimum condition, and they can be used to enhance or organise a cellar, or simply for easy access in living areas.

2014 – Our Year In The Press

As the year begins to draw to a close, it is natural to want to reflect on achievements over the last twelve months, and we here at Wine Racks are no exception. 2014 has been a truly great year for us, particularly as our products were featured in two prime-time television programmes in June and September. It’s not every day you’re on the telly, so we’d like to share these special moments with you.

George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces – Channel 4

Series 3, Episode 4

George Clarke

In this series Architect George Clarke meets with property owners who have turned their small spaces into incredible places to live, work and play. Our bespoke oak wine racks were featured in an amazing episode in series 3, aired on 26 June, which followed a Manchester couple, Mark and Clare, who decided to turn their basement into an underground casino, complete with cellar! Mark described the moment the wine racks went in as a highlight of his overall project and states on his own website that WineRacks stood out as offering exceptional service – we think they look fantastic! You can watch a clip from the show here.

New Tricks – BBC One

Series 11, Episode 7

The Cast of New Tricks

One of our bespoke wine cabinets, made from galvanised steel and stained pine, was also featured in an episode of the crime solving drama ‘New Tricks’ on BBC One. The episode was entitled ‘In Vino Vertias’, a latin phrase which literally translates as ‘In wine there is truth’ – we couldn’t agree more! It was aired on 29 September, and formed part of the 11th series of the long running show. The episode followed the mysterious death of a landlord from an old London pub, where our famous wine rack could be spotted in the cellar. The murder was investigated by series regulars Tamzin Outhwaite, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Dennis Waterman and Denis Lawson, and took the characters to a vineyard in Kent. You can watch a clip from the episode here.

Top 5 Gifts for Wine Lovers this Christmas

Whether we like it or not, it’s that time of year again – festive season is upon us! Here at Wineracks we’re passionate about all things wine-related. If you know someone who has a penchant for pinot or a takes a shine to sauvignon, here are five great gift ideas for wine lovers to get you started with your Christmas shopping.

1. Wine racks

Chances are, the wine-lover in your life has a budding collection that continues to grow, and without proper storage, they may be somewhat limited on space. Bespoke wine racks allow them to store their precious bottles with proper care, in the right conditions, meaning their wine can age correctly.

Our made-to-measure racks can be fitted to match any interior style or bottle preference, offering a completely unique gift that can be tailored to any requirements. Whichever size, colour or material you choose, our robust, high-quality wine storage options will make for the perfect present.

2. Lockable Bottle Stoppers

A fun gift for anyone who likes to keep the important things in their life safe! A fairly modern, tongue-in-cheek invention, these handy lockable bottle stoppers come with four digit combination codes to help keep prying hands at bay. Once opened, simply pop the stopper in your favourite bottle of vino and keep your prized possession as secure as possible.

As with standard bottle stoppers, it will also keep your wine fresh until you next decide to indulge. Stoppers are available in a variety of materials, including the sleek stainless steel, making them an ideal gift for many.

3. Wine bottle decanter

For friends who appreciate the finer things in life, a gorgeous, crystal glass decanter is suitable for dispensing both red and white wine. A fashion statement in their own right, these decorative decanters usually come with an ice bowl, which fits snugly underneath to keep white wines cool, while allowing red wines to be served at room temperature.

Pouring wine into a decanter exposes the contents of the bottle to oxygen, allowing it to aerate, which can enhance the taste and aroma.

4. Wine tasting experience

If your loved one is a person who enjoys experiences rather than tangible things, then a wine tasting session might be the perfect treat for them this Christmas. There are many venues, wine bars and wineries in the UK which offer regular tasting sessions or events, giving you the opportunity to spend quality time with one another, whilst tasting some wonderful new wines at the same time.

If getting out of the city is an attractive prospect, then taking your friend or family member to the countryside on a vineyard tour to learn about wine-making and sample some of the goods, will surely be a gift they’ll remember.

5. Electric bottle opener

Perfect for the techie in your life – an electric bottle opener allows them to open a bottle with ease, at just the quick touch of a button. Powered by batteries and very straightforward to operate, these are the ideal gifts for those who simply can’t wait to enjoy their wine!

A Guide to Wine Storage, From A&W Moore

One of the most important ways to keep your wine in optimum condition is to store it correctly. It’s not as simple as throwing a few bottles on to a wine rack. No, there are a few more things to consider. Use our handy guide, to make sure that your fine wines are being stored correctly.

The first thing that you should think about is the ‘climate’ of your wine cellar. Climate is made up of the temperature and the humidity. They work closely together, to ensure that your wine ages well.

 

Temperature

This is the most critical element of your wine cellar. Try to keep the temperature of your wine cellar as constant as possible. Ideally, aim for between 10 and 14 degrees centigrade. The cellar should absolutely never reach higher than 25 degrees centigrade. If wines are exposed to temperatures that are too high, this will age them prematurely.

 

Humidity

The next vital factor for creating and ideal climate in your wine cellar is to control the humidity.

Why is humidity important?

Humidity is the amount of water vapour in the atmosphere.

If humidity is too low…

If the humidity of the cellar is too low, organic corks may begin to dry out. If this happens, oxygen may get into the wine.

If humidity is too high…

There is also a risk to the quality of your wine, if the humidity in your cellar is too high. Firstly, the moisture will spoil the labels on the bottles. Secondly and more importantly, there is a possibility that you are creating the optimum conditions for fungus to grow on your wine bottles.

Controlling humidity can be tricky. However, a simple solution from A&W Moore is a cellar conditioner, which has amazing dual functionality – controlling both temperature and humidity. It can be tempting to buy a regular air conditioner but unfortunately, they can make the atmosphere too dry, as they are not designed for your wine cellar specific needs.

 

Lighting

The darkness of your cellar is a huge factor in ensuring that your wine is stored correctly. Ultraviolet light can be detrimental to the quality of your wine. It’s important to note than some wines are more susceptible to degradation than others but they all need to be protected. There is science behind ultraviolet light’s effect on wine but it’s quite easy to understand. First of all, the excessive exposure is called ‘lightstrike’. The UV light reacts with the wine, creating compounds which destroy the taste. Along with ensuring a dark environment, wines in coloured glass stand a much better chance of avoiding lightstrike.

 

Successful wine storage takes some practice and planning, but when it’s done correctly, it is a satisfying and rewarding activity. You’ll enjoy the maximum benefit from the wines you invest in, when it has the best conditions to mature in.
