Here we go again ladies and gents, the Grape to Grain LIVE tastings continue apace!!! Tom and Baz...and sometimes Jen come to you LIVE....from Prestwich!! Tremendous wines, matched cheeses and a whole load of fun..In In is the new Out Out...Until we can be In whilst Out...shakin' it all about!
Also now starting at 8pm!!! :)
Friday Fizz Fest time!! Full bottle only, for obvious reasons, we will be chinning 3 superb sparkling drops, each paired with a RUDEBOI cheese from our new supplier I.J. Mellis Farmhouse Cheeses. We have gone with some different grapes/styles this time round, but all are from tried and tested producers we L-O-V-E!!
The wines are delivered to your door, with matched cheeses and we then taste it together online, we will be live streaming on Facebook and Instagram LIVE and back on Zoom too!! Banging wines and 2 pillocks hosting...or 1 pillock and Barry...
This can only be purchased in Full Bottle format as we can't decant fizzy wizzy.
Without further ado...here are the wines for this week;
- First up is another gem from them Chaffey Bros down in Austraaaaaalia! A really unique blend of Kerner, Gewurtz and our house fav Riesling. Aromatic with a lick of residual sugar makes this a brilliant way to kick things off!
- Following that an absolute cracker from our top pals at Chateau Ste Michelle in the Colombia Valley, WA. The Domaine Michelle Brut is a gloriously balanced 'Champagne' style wine, made in the Méthod Champenoise with classic Champers grapes (Chardy, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier to bind it all together)
- We finish with Jen's side piece Ken Forresters 'Sparklehorse' Sparkling Chenin - South Africa's number one grape Chenin Blanc, in the hands of their number one Chenin wrangler Ken Forrester, with a cheeky fizzy wizzy vibe! Aged on the lees for a whole 14 months means this will be creamy and luxuriant with a gentle mousse to round things off!
Serious wines, for (not very) serious folk...Should be an absolute spanker!!
