Welcome to the home of The Graped Crusader!....


I understand why some writers and bloggers feel a bit funny about accepting samples but I’m not one of them. I'm not made of money and I rely on samples to an extent to keep my blog filled! Of course, I also love to write about wines I've had in my wine cellar for years but given most of these are no longer available to buy it doesn't make for the best consumer wine advice.......


If you’d like to send a wine sample please send to:


Richard Saxton, c/o Higgs & Sons, 3 Waterfront Business Park, Brierly Hill, West Midlands DY5 1LX.


I’ll do my best to include as many samples as possible…..
