Welcome to the new Hermitage Cellars website

Wine is an amazing beverage!  The people who produce wine in the main are some of the most passionate and interesting people you could ever get to meet. Every wine region has its own character, that sense of place that is so topical in food right now has existed in the wine world for many years. Here you will find wines that are in my cellar, that I share with friends and family around a dinner table, as well as some current thoughts, news and opinions on wine and the people who make it. Enjoy.
