So let the expert Wine Team be your guide as you imbibe some great releases, and learn a little more about the wondrous world of wine.
Thursday 24th October: The Loire
From the chalk highlands of Pouilly-Fume and Sancerre, past the rolling vineyards of Vouvray and Saumur to Sevre-et-Maine and the sea the Loire has something for everyone. They work beautifully with a roast chicken if you need more convincing…
Thursday 21st November: California
Hipster Washington and Oregon, aristocratic Napa Valley and the experimenters of the Californian Central Coast. If you can think of something then someone on the US Pacific Coast is probably trying to do it and it might even work!
Friday 6th December: Christmas
The annual question is upon us; do we get something that great-aunt Gladys will tolerate or do we buy wine that we actually like? Look no further as we attempt to do both and help you survive the most ‘wonderful’ time of the year!
Thursday 30th January: South American Red
There will be Malbec. But also Carmenere, Riesling, Tannat and whatever else we can get our greedy mits on! The vastness of South America beggars belief with a choice of wine to match.
Thursday 13th February: Valentines
Whether something sparkling, a perfect accompaniment to a beautiful home cooked meal or a last minute panic buy because you still thought it was mid-January, don’t worry we have wines for everyone. Like the wines you know and love but something a little bit different to keep things fresh.
Thursday 12th March: Spanish Whites
Spanish white wine is designed for food first and foremost, whether it is seafood on the coast or rich poultry in the interior. From modern classics and local specialities to something completely different we can guarantee a wine for everybody!
