I received the April newsletter from the Swedish wine importer Vinunic yesterday entitled våra viner. Vinunic is around 13 years old and has some great top-of-the-line names that it imports such as Guigal, Catena, DRC, Zind-Humbrecht, Louis Jadot, Gaja, Sassicaia, Vergelegen, Shafer vineyards etc.

Good value, low-price, wines that I will look out for from Vinunic in April include Pewsey Vale Riesling 2006 and Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache 2005

On their website is a nice feature where you can input details about the wine you wish to drink and you receive a recommendation as to which Riedel glass will bring out the best in your wine.

There is an associated wine club Club VinUnic which costs 250Kr to join. According to the blurb you receive discounts on wine and invitations to wine tastings and trips. You also get two Riedel Vinum Bordeaux glasses. This looks a great bargain since the retail price of these glasses is 590Kr. According to the membership form, the fee is a one-off payment and future years' membership is free.
