Hello and Welcome to Domaine of the Bee - the tiny winemaking project of Justin Howard-Sneyd MW in France's hotly-tipped Roussillon region.
We've had such a miserably cold winter in England, and it hasn't been much better in France. We have discovered that sharing a bottle of Domaine of the Bee every evening to fend off the cold is as good as turning the central heating on full blast - and probably cheaper too. (Recession tip No.1)
We love to champion big reds - it is the style we love and the style we make, and we are unashamed enjoyers of full-throttle, turbo-charged Grenache. We are aquiring more fans and our mailing list is growing by the day. If you are new to our world - welcome, and if you are a regular, welcome back! A pint of the usual?
We can proudly say that Robert Parker still hasn't tasted our wine, and so it hasn't yet reached the status of 'Allocation to exisiting customers only - mailing list now closed', but thanks to your loyalty and enthusiasm, word is starting to spread. Keep up the good work!
Justin, Amanda and Philippe
