Top TV chef Ken Hom has launched a range of wines specifically to go with spicy Oriental food. Made in conjunction with Eric Hosteins, prsident directeur gnral of Louis Vialard, which owns Chteau Cissac, the range is sourced from Vins de Pays d'Oc and is called Ken Hom Spicy Varietals. It comprises a Chasan from Limoux and a Roussane (Hrault) for the whites, and for the reds a Grenache (Hrault) and Mourvdre (Pezenas). The latter is Hom's personal favourite. Andrew Manktelow, Louis Vialard's UK marketing manager, told Harpers that the wines are k2.50 (1.89) ex-cellar so he expects them to sell in restaurants for 12-15. Initial distribution will be through Louis Vialard's UK agent, Alastair Cassie of AC Wines.
