Food Glorious Food – a New Section

March 6th, 2015

A new beginning

A little orphan called Oliver once sang about Food, Glorious Food. We also think it glorious and especially when it is matched with a lovely bottle of wine. But that’s for another day. For now, I’d like to introduce you to stage 1 of a major redesign for Red Nose Wine. Now open in the shop is our new food & coffee & Oils section ( we’re open to suggestions on a name – Red Nose Nosh? )

New Food Section at Red Nose Wine

Coffee – Organic & Decaf

We hope to expand the food offering over time but for now, we are concentrating on organic Coffees. We have ground coffee from Nicaragua, Peru, Columbia as well as a range of Italian roasted beans in different styles. We also have a delicious ( and I never thought I would say this ) Decaf coffee. The trick is to keep it in beans apparently. Call in and try some. Prices start at €4.95 for a 250g bag.

Oils – Olive & Truffle

We have dabbled in oils a little bit up to now, but we have ramped it up considerably. We have oils from France and a range of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Italy, incuding a great value 5L tin. Only €37.50 for the equivilant of 10 x 500ml bottles at €3.75 each. Did you know oil keeps much better in a tin ( no light gets in ). If you really want to treat yourself, try the truffle oil. A taste sensation.

Pasta – Gluten Free and Regular

We are working with Ireland’s premium importer of authentic Italian foods and are delighted to stock a range of pastas, including Tagliatelle, Spaghetti, Penne, Fusilli, and as well as regular pasta we have a range that are Gluten Free. Prices start at €1.95

Water Water Everywhere

When I am abroad I always like a glass of sparkling water to help with digestion but I find most Irish waters too fizzy. We are now stocking San Pelligrino in 750ml glass bottles. Try it before you buy it. Only €1.75.

Vinegar – Sauces – Risotto & Breadsticks

Our very popular Gassac Balsamic Vinegar is back in stock and we have also added an Italian version at a less luxurious price. We have a Tomato/Basil sauce, Risotto Rice and even some very nice breadsticks. We have changed the shop around so please call down to see what we have done.
