Our in-store tastings are BACK BABY!! After a year and half of meeting through Zoom, we can now all meet up and share our love of all things boozy in person...and we are so, so, SO excited!! We have a full program of events coming up!!
Our in-store Tastings have various start times - on Thursdays they will start in both stores at 8pm. On Saturdays they will start in Rammy at 2pm and in Prestwich at 4pm. The LIVE virtual tastings will continue and they will always start at 8pm unless specifically stated otherwise!
This week, we have: Natty Wines to BLOW YOUR MIND!!
If you haven’t already joined the cool kids..The natural Wine movement has well and truly landed, and we have some interesting drops to introduce you to.
Wine makers from all over the Globe are doing some great & funky things with minimal intervention at the heart of their philosophy.
Come be cool, join us!
No nationwide delivery obviously as these are IN PERSON/IN-STORE tastings only. We still delivery nationwide on our LIVE virtual tastings but this is not one of those tastings!
The 'portions' are 75ml per person unless stated otherwise, and almost always teamed up with a delicious food pairing. There will be lots of opportunity to buy more wine afterwards if you so please...
All these are subject to change...but...here's the lineup!
First up, we'll start off in Spain, Penedes, with a glass of Alemany i Corrio, Principa Mathematica, an 100% Xarel-lo from the little town of Vilafranca del Penedes in Cataluña. These guys have transformed their vineyards from traditional, high yield, high chemical use sites, to organic & biodynamic havens!
Next we'll dive in to the weird & wonderful world of orange wine, tasting an exceptional wine from the eccentric Clement Klur of Alsace, France. The Il Y A De l'or dans L'air. This is part of Clement's experimental range, he is pushing the boundaries of conventional winemaking, by making a wine as 'natural' as possible. No fining, no filtration, no added sulphites. A mind-bending blend of Muscat & Gewürztraminer.
We'll end on the Amphora aged Sumoll Negre Metamorphika from Costador Terroirs. Sumoll is a rustic grape which is native to Catalunya & is Pinot Noir like in intensity. The fruit is sourced from 60 year old vines, hand-harvested & aged in clay. Juicy, savoury & oh so moreish!
Serious wines, for (not very) serious folk...should be an absolute spanker!!
