Ballymaloe pop up wine shop

We are delighted to have recently opened a pop up wine shop in Brown Thomas Cork, to showcase a selection of wines from the award winning Ballymaloe wine cellar. Continuing the innovative tradition started by the late Mr Ivan Allen, when he started the Ballymaloe wine cellar almost 50 year ago, along with Jim Whelan, and the work by his grandson, Sacha Whelan. We are delighted to offer the Ballymaloe wine experience in Brown Thomas Cork, with a team from Ballymaloe, including Daphne, Nicola, Colm, and Fionn.

'Riesling Revolution - A journey to the heart of this great wine’

Ballymaloe House, in association with Wine Australia, is thrilled to present this very interesting wine event.

Thursday May 17th, 2012, 7pm, The Grain Store, Ballymaloe, Shanagarry, Co. Cork

Riesling presents a conundrum. For some it produces the greatest white wines in the world, yet misunderstood and ridiculed by many. Our presentation, plus a 12 wine tasting, followed by a Summer supper, aims to resolves these two disparate points of view. Joining us to present the evening are 3 winemakers from some of the great Riesling growing regions of the world.

Wine Awards

The February 2010 issue Lonely Planet magazine includes the spring wine course at Ballymaloe House in Co Cork among their listing of 10 BEST WEEKEND COURSES.

It is the only wine course to be chosen in a wide-ranging article about 52 interesting weekend breaks in many different countries. There is an appealing symmetry to the accolade, too, as these wine appreciation weekends at Ballymaloe are now in their tenth year.
