Here we go again ladies and gents, the Saturday LIVE tasting with Tom and Baz LIVE....from Prestwich!! 3 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!
Still starting at 6pm tho... :)
Martha sang it...HEATWAAAAVE!!! (published on 18th June...Heatwave not included)
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...
As we say, we are applying the 'new normal' format for this tasting - the 'portions' are 100ml 'Tasters' and 500ml 'Carafes' too as people start to tone down the lockdown alcoholism. Or maybe you aren't...? We won't tell you how to live your life!!!
Without further ado...here are the wines for this week;
Its a mixup tonight, 1 white and 2 reds...3 thoroughbred bangers, delicious wines to enjoy in this glorious weather!!*
*Grape to Grain cannot guarantee that there will be a heatwave included in your tasting...in fact if June is anything to go by it will be under f#@*ing water but....yaknow...
- First up is the a 100% Garganega Soave Classico by them kids at Pieropan. We have had the La Rocca, this is their entry level juice - less wine making more whomping!!
- Following that is the our second Kiwi Pinot Noir - this time round its the Wine Makers Reserve by Yealand's. Their WMR Savvy B was the flux fermented mango yoghurt bomb from a couple of weeks ago, so expect more magic!!
- We have to finish with a spicy boi, and with that in mind its time for a legit winner and a bona fide delve into the prestigious world of RIOJA...Ree-yoya for those of us in the know...choreee-tho, payeyeyeyeyeyeaaaaaa etc etc. Its the Edicion (Edithhhhion?) Limitada by Ramon Bilbao...OOFT!!
Serious wines, for (not very) serious folk...Should be an absolute spanker!!
