Hail Hot Bottlers!

Behold! Series 7 of my podcast A Glass With... is released today!

Episode 1 kicks off with the one and only Matt Tebbutt - it was a brilliant opportunity to learn even more about my buddy, turns out he's more awesome than I'd imagined. Tune in at aglasswith.com or Spotify, Apple Podcasts and other podcast platforms. Thrilled to be filling your ears with tantalising tales from our glorious guests as well as much laughter and rocking rosé from South Africa's Babylonstoren.   

And we have an exclusive special offer for you: Buy 3 or more bottles of Babylonstoren’s 2020 Mourvèdre Rosé and get a 500ml tin of their Extra Virgin Olive Oil as a gift - dive in and click here to buy. It's ruddy scrumptious!


My brand new seris of Olly's Locktails launches this week on Mail +  Join me in my garden for my easy cocktail recipes. This week I'm showing you my 'Rule of 3' Margherita' using an eggcup! 


If you've been watching my Isolation Diary you'll know I set myself the challenge of recording and releasing a single.  Well I'm delighted to exclusively reveal to Hot Bottlers that the release date has been confirmed! Carve Friday 3rd July into your diaries for a listen... I'll be revealing more details next week and beyond. Click here to catch this week's installment about my love of frogs and also a live sneak preview of my single!


And now for this week's Value Vino.  I've found some fantastic offers this week so scoop them up before they're gone.

Andrew Peace Shiraz 2018 (13.5%) £5.50 Co-op. Cherry bonanza! Sweet, ripe and tangy as a bramble on a trampoline.

Devil’s Creek Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019 (13.5%) £7.99 mix six Majestic. Lovely white for a sunny sip, this is tropical, fragrant and slices delightfully through your thirst like a ray through the day.

Villa Blanche Pinot Noir 2018 (13%) £6.74 on offer Waitrose. Serious wine this - firm Pinot with robust texture and gleaming sheen. At the usual price of £8.99 is a steal. For £6.74 it’s sensational. Brill with burgers, brill all round.  

Tesco Finest Vintage Cava 2016 (12%) £9. A reserva Cava for under a tenner, aged for a minimum of fifteen months, this is the whole nine yards.  Toasty aromas and high voltage flavours as vibrant as an apple that’s plugged into a pylon. Kick off the weekend early.

Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Côtes du Rhône Villages 2017 (13.5%) £7. Down from £8.25 from a decent vintage, this peppery red is as deep and rich as a bass guitar playing to a golden beat. Barbecue vino sorted.

Have a lovely week and keep on rocking!
