Armit Wines and The Spectator Wine Club
Johnny Ray, wine editor and resident bon vivant at the Spectator, has delved into Armit’s portfolio and come back with some true gems. He has put together a mixed case of his favourites, taking us on a tour of Italy with six wines from six different regions. Each one comes with his own recommendation, and the case includes a special offer, just for Spectator readers!
Not only this, but it turns out that Matetic, our own Chilean producer and pioneer of organic viticulture, holds a particularly special place in his heart. As such, he has picked three of their best value wines, that are available at a special price as an add-on case if you order the mixed Italian case.
