Vinomarket is a great example of a local business that has had to adapt to the lockdown situation and is now offering a home delivery service. I asked the owner, Richard Bell-Young to select some reasonably priced wines to feature in this newsletter edition.
VINOMARKET was born on May 1st 2019 as a result of Richard Bell-Young practicing for over ten years as a retail and on-trade wine merchant in the Sotogrande up-to-Marbella areas.
VINOMARKET is a wine, spirit, beer & soft drinks Wholesaler situated in the “Polo” village of San Enrique de Guadiaro. The new warehouse store opened on 1st October 2019 to both on-trade and private customers who, once registered with Vinomarket, can benefit from trade and wholesale prices and delivery services.
“My aim with VINOMARKET is to continue offering my tried and tested (tasted) wines, so popular with my friends and customers in Sotogrande, Estepona, San Pedro de Alcantara and Marbella, BUT, by using my buying power and direct supply relationships pass on wholesale prices (or even less) to everyone…..whether its for 1 bottle of multiple cases!”
The Vinomarket App
During lockdown, Richard launched a new app which is available to download on both iOS and Android stores. It is so easy to use and you can have wines delivered for free if you’re in the A-Zone (La Linea to Marbella). If you’re in the B-Zone (i.e. rest of Spain), you can have wines delivered for free if you spend over 150 euros or for a charge of 10 euros if you spend less than the required amount. This app was great for us during lockdown and we have continued to use it since!
Richard’s featured wines for this newsletter:-
CABALLERO DE OLMEDO RUEDA WHITE WINE
WHOLESALE PRICE 4,50€
One of my best sellers, this 60% Verdejo and 40% Viura grapes, is made by one of the founding fathers of the D.O. of Rueda, Felix Lorenzo Cachazo, in his family-run Bodega www.cachazo.com
Don’t be put off by the price! This is a crisp dry, easy-to-drink, everyday white with wonderful notes of white flowers and hints of apricot, that punches way above its weight and due to its versatility has the added benefit of pairing well with most dishes….from salads, fish, seafood to picking crisps peanuts and olives whilst watching the TV!
CONDESA DE LEGANZA BLUSH ROSADO
WHOLESALE PRICE 4,00€
A new addition to my range, this dry yet understatedly fruity Spanish rosé was highly recommended to me by a long-standing client of mine and I bought it without my customary obligatory tasting before buying. And I was so right to do so…..its become a instant best seller, even with clients who love the classic blush rosés from Southern France. It’s an absolute must to try and so good that it will convert those of you who won’t touch rosés!
PUERTA VIEJA CRIANZA SELECCION
WHOLESALE PRICE 6,00€
I was recently appointed an official distributor for Bodegas Riojanas of Monte real, Viña Albina, Viore and Puerta Vieja fame, and this 100% Tempranillo Rioja red has become possibly the best red in my range re contents-vs-price category!
Although the regulatory minimum is 12 months, this crianza spends 18 months maturing in oak barrel and then a further 6 months in the bottle in perfect Bodega conditions before being released. It is full of red berry fruits and has a lovely balance with the soft vanilla influence of its time aging in wood. An old classic and traditional wine re-born with modern techniques and wine making methods…..go for it!
