Then our weekly wine tasting is perfect for you...every Saturday we
select wines from our range for you to discover.
It's a casual tasting, no pressure and not guided so you can try
whilst browsing the shop. If you needed to know more, our
knowledgeable wine staff will be on hand to offer advice.
Samples will be available from 10am to 5pm each Saturday.
This saturday as part of "VEGANuary" we will be sampling a
selection of some of the best vegan wines the world has to
Vin de France £9.99 ABV: 13.5%
If the sound of cicadas, a passing 2CV or a French café
accordion strikes a chord within you, so too will a glass of
Pigassou. Dust down the Edith Piaf CD, break out the fresh baked
baguette settle down to enjoy a soft fruity glassful.
The Waxed Bat
Mendoza, Argentina £10.99 ABV: 13.5%
The Waxed Bat is one of Argentina's most original and exciting
wines, now with thousands of dedicated fans. It's a sumptuous blend
of three great grapes, crafted by the Malbec magician Opi Sadler -
a terrific, velvety, black fruit and spice red.
Split Rock Sauvignon
New Zealand £12.99 ABV: 13%
Split Rock is a vibrant Sauvignon Blanc, packed with lemon and
tropical fruit. It's from the pioneering Seifried family estate,
who set up in the coastal Nelson region in 1973, way before most of
Marlborough next door. A brilliant, sun-filled white.
Los Hermanos Manzanos
Blanco Rioja 2017
Spain £13.99 Abv:13%
Crisp, ripe and fragrant, Los Hermanos is a class act. It comes
from a 200 year old family estate that has a very modern approach
to winemaking. This accounts for its brilliant fresh pear and apple
fruit with a gentle toastiness from oak fermentation.
