    Yapp HQ – Wine and Canvas

    Every now and then it’s fun to mix things up a little, and on my drive to work today one of the numerous reminders pinged up on the iPhone – being such an all-encompassing device the reminder really could be anything from a new local gig being flagged (as an aside, I’d strongly recommend the […]

    Tavel Tome

    In December 2011 a Swiss journalist called Rolf Bichsel published a creditable (if slightly sexistly titled) book called ‘Tavel – des Hommes et des Vins’ that ran to 151 pages and weighed in at 840 grams.

    Temperature Control

    We Brits do love our wine but why must we serve our whites too cold and our reds too warm? Whatever the weather this August, and if our English summer is true to form it will probably be tipping down, we do ourselves a disservice in this country by drinking most of our wine at […]

Our chosen venue for this is Medcalf bar and restaurant in Exmouth Market, London EC1 because its relaxed, urbane atmosphere seems to suit […]

    Stand up for SITT

    The start of our trade event season for 2011 began this week with our hosting a stand at The Specialist Importers Trade Tasting event (SITT) 2011 in Manchester (Monday) and London (Wednesday).

    Food, Wine, now there’s a match...

    Working at Yapp HQ has always been an interesting experience and there’s never a shortage of recommendations about new vintages, new wines and particularly new food and wine pairings. As a man who came from the cider and cheese school of thought it’s been a real eye opener – not that cider doesn’t go with […]
