Christmas Tasting

Our first Christmas tasting will take place on the evening of Friday December 4th and everyone is welcome. Tickets are limited as it's only a small shop but you will be able to taste your way through 12 wines all of which will be picked with Christmas in mind. This will be an informal event so please come along anytime.

There will certainly be a Champagne to start and Somerset Pomona to finsh. What comes in between is to be confirmed but Chablis and Red Burgundy are set for an appearance. These will all be excellent quality wines covering all your needs from parties and aperitif through to boxing day cold cuts via roast turkey and cheeses.

 

Ticket price includes all wines, mince pies and cheese plus you'll get 10% off any mix or 6 or more bottles ordered on the night.

Free Chilean Tasting

This Saturday we will be opening three exciting wines from Chile.

First up is a Sauvignon Gris from El Viejo del Valle (The Old Man of the Valley). It is rare to find Sauvignon Gris in Chile (and most other places to be honest)- the french plant some in the Loire Valley and call it Fie Gris. A very low yielding variety and one to explore. Over to our friends at winegeeks.com for more-

"Thought to be an older version of the Sauvignon Blanc varietal, though there is some conjecture as to which is the chicken and which is the egg. Sauvignon Gris has more of a pinkish hue to its skin (it is also known as Sauvignon Rosé) and has similar levels of acidity as that of Sauvignon Blanc. Sauvignon Gris does produce fruit with higher sugar levels than its cousin, which contribute to greater aromatics and a more rich and round feel to the wines. At one point these wines were highly prized yet due to the rediculously low yields that the grape produces it almost became extinct."

We will also open two top wines from Montes- Pinot Noir Limited Selesction and Montes Alpha Chardonnay.

South Africa Vs New Zealand

Come along this Saturday afternoon to taste a couple of interesting white wines- one from each of the two RWC semi finalists. The South African wine is 100% Fairtrade grapes in the form of Goats do Roam from Western Cape. This will be up against an ever popular showing from New Zealand- Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, this time from MOKOblack. Both under £9 and worth a having a try

Open Afternoon

We would love to see you all on Saturday to taste a few of the products we are offering and have a look around our little shop. Plenty to taste including English fizz, local gin, a cider or two and perhaps a bit of cheese. Something of a British theme but when there is so much good stuff on our doorstep, why not? We have some good Rioja offers and the usual 5% off any 3 and 10% off any 12. Look forward to seeing you!
