This Christmas I have teamed up with fellow former professional rugby player and past-Cornish Pirates captain Tim Cowley and his Bordeaux based business Oui Cellar Wine Club.
Oui Cellar is a subscription wine delivery club that Tim created when the pandemic paused Tim’s Bordeaux-based wine tour business, Rustic Vines Tours. Using his exceptional connections within Bordeaux’s wine industry, Tim personally selects the best wines direct from the chateaux and ships a mixed case of 12 bottles to Oui Cellar members all over the world every three or six months. Tim’s selections are always exceptional, and each delivery is also accompanied by an online tasting video that Tim produces on location with each of the chateau owners and winemakers, tasting notes, and recipes for perfectly paired dishes. Tim asked me to provide the recipes for Oui Cellar’s December delivery, and it’s been a fantastic experience working with him to match meals to his selections.
As an early Christmas present Oui Cellar have kindly offered a 10% and 15% discount respectively on their initial Silver and Gold subscriptions for December delivery. Subscriptions can be paused or cancelled at any time so if you love Bordeaux wine then use the discount code “PHILLEIGH SILVER” or “PHILLEIGH GOLD” now.
For an example of the tasting videos at the Chateau itself check out this cracker with Tim chatting with 17th generation owner of Chateau Coutet, David Beaulieu. They go into the reasons on why David believes that their 2017 vintage was their best on record!
Please note that to utilise the discount codes in time to give the wines the best chance of arriving before Christmas you will have to purchase the Silver or Gold subscription by Wednesday the 8th of December.
