Longitude is Flagstone’s way finder wine, to hear of it maturing wonderfully over ten years warms the cockles of our hearts.
We love anecdotes from our fans.They come in all shapes and sizes and each has a unique tale to recount. These are little bursts of personality that brighten our days and inspire us to keep making little bottles of magic for you.
This arrived from Paddy and Maggie today:
“We nearly always have a stock of Longitude in our ‘every day drinking’ section in our cellar. Recently, a neighbour who was widowed about two years ago started to offload some of her late husband’s wine collection. She has given numerous bottles to us most of which are well past their best and some undrinkable. The other day, she gave us two bottles of Longitude 2004. We were sure that this every day wine would join the ‘undrinkables’ but we were delighted to find it as good as if not better than the current Longitudes – a tour de force!
Many thanks for the excellent range of wines that appear under the Flagstone banner”
Needless to say, Longitude was the quaff of choice tonight, but I regarded the bottle in a slightly different light. It seemed to stand a little taller than before, its shoulders somewhat broader and if I’m not mistaken there was an air of ‘told you so’ about the bouquet. Well done Longitude, we’re very proud of you.
Longitude is Flagstone’s way finder wine, a place where people enter the quirky world of Flagstone.
Here’s Bruce Jack, pairing Longitude with Pete Goffe-Wood’s cooking and talking us through Flagstone’s Longitude, inspired by Dava Sobel’s book, ‘Longitude: The True Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time’ which recounts the story of John Harrison, an 18th century clockmaker, responsible for creating the first chronometer sufficiently accurate to be used to determine a ship’s longitude at sea.
