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!
Fizz and Chips y’all!! One of the best pairings known to man is fizzy wine, especially if there’s a bit of yeasty-ness or salinity, and fish and chips!! Now we are blessed with some absolutely scorching fish and chip gaffs round here…so lets collaborate!!
In Prestwich we are teaming up with Dan from Chips @ No 8, and in Rammy we are linking up with the gang at Taylors Traditional English Fish and Chips for a Thursday night feast!! A full sized Haddock, chips and peas/curry/gravy/tartare served with 3 glasses of fizzy wizzy...this will be an absolute winner!!
There will be 2 sittings 6:30pm and 8:30pm in both shops, so make sure you book onto the right tasting as we won’t be able to move your booking if this fills up like we expect it to…
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 is and Umbrian Pet Nat, the Annesanti Raspato Pet Nat. Slightly cloudy with an orangey-pink hue. A delicate spritz with fine well-lasting bubbles for a Pet Nat. Flavours of green apple, white peach, and unripe cantaloupe give the mouth a blast of freshness.
- Next we are off to Catalunya for the Bodegas Sumaroca 'Cava Nuria Claverol' Homenatge Brut Gran Reserva. Hand harvested and 24 months in oak - Unique, intense aroma with strong mineral and toasted notes resulting in a highly individual character. Full favoured; from a highly fruity start to an intriguing fresh and minerally finish.
- Finally, the absolute bee knees of an English sparkler, the Henners Native Grace Brut NV. A glorious multi vintage prestige cube from Herstmonceaux in East Sussex. Orange blossom, apple, spice and sweet pastry aromas accompanied by candied citrus and brioche notes on the palate. Gently persistent fizz with great depth of flavour, balanced acidity and a mouth-wateringly long length.
Serious wines, for (not very) serious folk...Should be an absolute spanker!!
