Borough Market Wine Merchant - Vicky Brings O'Vineyards to London
It has recently come to my attention that a lot of Japanese people are talking about my wine without popping into my google alerts. It’s probably related to the differences in language. Even though they usually write the brand in roman characters, there are often kanji suffixes or other weird linguistic quirks (e.g. o’vineyardsは).
Anyway, I did some active searching and found a lot of people talking about the wines. A few highlights:
A little tweeted tasting note. I’m ridiculously fascinated by reviews I cannot read. Google translate’s best effort approximates the review to “good easily”. Love it. Love that people are out there tasting the Mediterranean Mojo 2006.
And then there’s e-American. An online shopping site that offers deals on my Mojo.
But the big player online is Rakuten who are an enormous online retailer. They bought out PriceMinister earlier this year. And they put together this amazing banner that shows the Japanese are as enchanted as we are with the medieval Cité de Carcassonne.
As a lot of you know, Vicky Wine has been tearing up the wine tasting circuits, with grandiose events in London, Paris and beyond.
In her recent flurry of London tastings, she presented a couple of wines from O’Vineyards (to rave reviews). And she even found a home for the Mediterranean Mojo in London.
The top notch wine-innovators at Borough Wines are taking the Mojo under their wing for good. So if you want to get your hands on that Mojo, contact Borough. And if you want to get a sneak peak before you splurge, keep an eye on Vicky’s page where she’ll announce her next tasting in your area.
I’ll probably swing by the next London tasting myself. So you won’t have to watch the ridiculous videos we make to say hello to you from afar. Instead you’ll have to deal with the ACTUAL me. Thank god you’ll be drinking!! ;D

How to find us
Domaine O’Vineyards is just a few kilometres north of Carcassonne. GPS coordinates: 43.259622, 2.340387
885 Avenue de la Montagne Noire
11620 Villemoustaussou, France
Tel: +33(0) 630 189 910
Follow the signs to Mazamet/ Villemoustaussou until the D118 (the last straight road) and the Dyneff gas station on the roundabout.
Take the exit towards Pennautier. Continue 500m to a small roundabout and go straight over.
Look out for the second road on your right, Avenue des Cévennes which goes up hill (about 1km) to Avenue de la Montagne Noire.
At the last juction, bear left at the road sign “Ave de la Montagne Noire” (confusing as it seems to show a right turn)
After another 500m you will see our red brick color building in the middle of the vines.
