If you have something in mind, but can’t quite put your finger on it, then this section is for you. Here we've grouped our wine list into sections defined by style, so you can get a better overview of the wines you like, and find something new that might excite you.
Pinot Grigio is still the most asked for wine. There are so many wines that fall into easy upgrades to the infamous wine, some of which can but found in the section above. Albarinos, Soave and Picpoul de Pinet - all mostly unknown but do the same trick and are so much more interesting. Included in this section there is our house wine that will beat a pinot grigio any day of the week.

Bordeaux is the daddy of wine regions, steeped in history, it has been seen as inaccessible to younger generations of wine drinkers. To make a Bordeaux list worthy of Gales wine bar, I set about finding easier and more approachable wines from all over the Bordeaux region. Cabernet and Merlot are the two most important grapes of the region. The Cabernet rich wines are more complex and elegant and improve with age. The more Merlot dominated wines can be drunk much younger.

Rose is just fun. Maybe more suited to simply having a quick glass of wine with friends, summer or not. If you pick a classic Provence style rose, the structure of the wine can match any of the more recognised meal orientated options.
