President Romanian Wine Tourism Board on hearing of Total FM Closure

Colin : November 8, 2017 9:27 pm : Recommendations

Dear Colin,

I’ve just heard the news and I am deeply sorry about this. I just wanted to know that your wine programe was a great show…it was a really good way to stay in touch with all what’s happening in the Spanish wine world.
Anyway,  I am positive things will work out eventually and your show will be truly appreciated by mass-media.

With fellow International Wine Judge, Chris (background) and International Wine Contest Bucharest official, Silviu Serban, in Romania 2017!

Me and the others from  Romania are eager to hearing you on air telling us some wine news soon…
All the best,

Colin, sorry to hear that your radio show may not be with us much longer. We do enjoy your tasting and pairing suggestions,as well as keeping us up-to-date with the wine world, not to mention the occasional opportunity to come to Spain and taste some of your Spanish recommendations!

Cava de Paraje Calificada on-air tasting – comment from producer!

Colin : October 23, 2017 3:52 pm : Recommendations



Gracias Colin por este link y el WeTransfer del podcast.

Oigo a Eric Clapton hacer una maravillosa introducción! Muchas gracias por aceptar la sugerencia.

Absolutely wonderful is the comment that I keep from you! Thank you once again.

You ended up pronouncing SABATÉ I COCA very correctly, even the word CASTELLROIG – not so difficult though for an English speaker!

Following the Fine Wine & Gourmet Dine Radio Programme 22/10/2017

Hi Col,
Thank you for brightening up Phil’s and my miserable day. Firstly Phil’s team got thrashed by Arsenal 5 – 2, then whilst your were on air, Liverpool were getting done over by Spurs 4 – 1. It couldn’t get any worse, Oh and Tranmere lost yesterday.
Then a knight in shining armour arrived on the laptop to cheer us up. Well done, it was very interesting, and you were very generous in your comments towards us, the Rogers and Phil, and Cheshire Badminton in general. Great memories for us all. All the records we chose were spot on for us – thank you.
I would really like to think that somehow Steve got to know the record we chose for him. Oh and thanks for airing the ” Barney Rubble ” tag.
All for now, and thanks again,
Rog ( or is it Barney ?)

Seems I can be quite useful sometimes!

Colin : October 22, 2017 12:14 pm : Recommendations
I have just spent a wonderful time at Blasco tasting a series of reds. It seems to me that each of several stalls dotted around were manned by representatives from a variety of bodegas. All the chaps were delightful and helpful, as you’d expect. In the end, I settled on a Ribero roble from Torres, Celeste, which was a good price and bought 6 bottles. Many thanks for suggesting that I go along  –  it was most enjoyable.
Cheers, Mick

Hi Colin

Many thanks for the info below. We went along with Hilary and Stewart and had a fab time. We all said it was one of the best tasting we have been to. They had disco music, many tasty snacks and several bars set up for tasting and as you said all for free and all in a great relaxed atmosphere, they even told us to keep the wine glasses afterwards. There were some excellent wines there and we both bought boxes to stock up!


See you next Saturday at the Golf Club!


Best regards

Mike and Cele


Hola – a quick note before lightening hits my computer!

I’ve been invited to a rather fine tasting at Blasco, Teulada, this Friday – runs from about 11 am – through to late.

21 Torres wines, from various different DOs – I’d definitely go  but I’m teaching all day!  However, I asked if ok to invite others, and they were happy for me to do so!

Gratis, I believe!



Sent in  haste!!

Show was great for those interested in foods and wine and especially what was being produced in the region that Colin was based – All extra exposure for the world of wine and gastronomy is always a good thing, a popular subject and a worthy one too. Christopher Walkey, Founder of Glass of Bubbly.

Hi Colin

Sad to hear you are losing your radio slot.
Whatever you decide, as a survivor, you are bound to find something new and interesting. Thank you for your fun and informative past presentations of the Fine Wine & Gourmet Dine Programme, on Total FM.
Best regards

Hola Colin:
Sorry to hear of this as I enjoyed listening to your program [The Fine Wine & Gourmet Dine Programme] during my Sunday lunch. Media is always on the lookout for something that has a proven track record so I’m sure it won’t be too long before you’re up and running again.
All the best.

Total FM Closure – a generous comment

Hi Colin,
I was distressed to hear about the demise of Total FM, not least because I shall miss your radio show. I always found it meticulously researched and delivered with professionalism and humour. It was always a thoroughly good listen and I was surprised how much I learned on each occasion.
You managed to invite such distinguished guests and each one appeared to be delighted to be part of your broadcast. I know that your fine wine and dining show was highly regarded in the wine world hence the queue of heads of bodegas wanting to appear with you.

Señor Pepe Mendoza, Bodegas Enrique Mendoza, DOP Alicante

Where will I get my wine ‘fix’ in future? I and many others will miss your show very much. If there’s any chance that it ever be repeated elsewhere, please let me know.
Regards and with thanks for all your past broadcasts, Mick O’Connor

Musical Dinner with Paired Wines

Colin : October 8, 2017 11:17 am : Recommendations
Hola Col,
The concert and wine pairing evening last night was absolutely perfect. A nice location, wonderful wines (especially the Monastrell) excellent food but most of all the music. Super singing from Claire as well as terrific flute pieces. A perfect evening much appreciated by us and our guests from England. Very many thanks.
We are pleased to have nothing in our diary for November 25 so please book us 2 places for the evening at Club Nautico (proper name of the restaurant is Bela Dama).
Cheers, Mick
