Home > TASTINGS and EVENTS
We are once again holding our Christmas Tasting at the superb Old Shire Hall which will give us plenty of space for the fabulous selection of sixty wines that we have been lining up. We will have wines from all over the world to suit all tastes and pockets including some delicious wines from Argentina, South Africa, Spain, Italy, Chile, France, Australia and New Zealand and will have experts on hand to guide you through their wines.
We have listened to your comments from last year's Christmas Tasting with the result that there will be more tables with fewer wines which should allow you to get to the tasting tables more easily.
Of course Christmas is also the time of the year when fizz, dessert wines and port are more widely drunk and we have some lovely ones with which to tempt you. We are showing a new Champagne from a Grand Cru village, Reserva Cava, Franciacorta, plus a few old favourites. Then the ideal white and red wines to see you through the whole festive season.
There will be an extensive array of wine gifts with even more magnums and beautifully packaged wines.
This is an ideal opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and discover some new wines and to have the reassurance of trying before buying!
The caterers at the Old Shire Hall are offering a three course supper which can be booked directly with them, then all you have to do is walk upstairs to the Judges' Dining Room to eat! Two courses are £24.95 and three courses £29.95. We will be matching wines to their menu which will be offered at very competitive prices.
