Well this last week or so has seen a surge of interest into customers using our new 'Shop by Description' feature as well as masses of compliments about it. Whilst trying to be humble, we are not surprised that we are gaining praise for such a feature. In a webstore with a massive selection like ours there is a lot to juggle when choosing what to buy. Here at The Cellar HQ we are all about making wines fun, easy and accessible - that is our priority.
Today I just wanted to highlight a feature on our site that we posted about a month ago. It is for those of you that know certain grapes you like and wanting to expand out from there. We call it "Broadening your Grape Horizons' and you can click here to check it out.
What we have done is list all of the main grape varietals that people know of and then expanded on these with other grape varietals akin to them as well as regions where those grapes are made in which you may not have yet tried.
For example: - Sauvignon Blanc. Unless you've been living under a rock for the last 20 years you have definitely tried, smelt, or at least heard of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The wine style that has taken the world by storm. Most people only know of Marlborough as being producers of Sauvignon Blanc but that simply isn't true!
From here we have suggested other regions that you probably haven't explored when it comes to Sauvignon Blanc such as Sancerre or Pouilly Fume in the Loire Valley or even California. Then, we have made it easy for you to try a new grape varietal altogether with suggestions. For Sauvignon Blanc, we suggest that you try wines made from Gruner Veltliner, Semillon, Assyrtiko, Godello, and a few others. All of these new regions and grapes have links to take you straight away to our selection of the respective wines.
I, personally, hope that this will aid many of you into trying new and exciting wines - as that is truly the most riveting adventure you can go on. Happy Drinking!
