We have been running tastings on Fridays since we opened, but this year we have special, hosted tastings every Friday on the run-up to Christmas, starting about 5.30 until 7.30ish.
So far, we’ve had Mick O’Connell (MW) showing some marvellous Rieslings (we had more than one convert that night), followed by Gay McGuinness of Domaine des Anges, with his winemaker Florent Chave, covering their range from the Southern Rhône. Joe Coyle of Liberty Wines then joined us to show six wines from their expansive portfolio. They went down extremely well.
This Friday, December 2nd, we are joined by Rafa Salazar from Vinostito to taste what will undoubtedly be wonderful wines from the Vinostito range. It’s an amazing portfolio and, while the wines haven’t been chosen yet, you could throw a few darts at the VT listing and be happy with the wines chosen.
Friday the 9th sees Mick O’Connell return for a Port tasting. Very seasonal. Mick is one of the youngest Masters of Wine in the world, and it’s a great chance to taste, and discuss, various Ports.
On the 16th Colm Carter from Honest 2 Goodness will be here to explore the wines of Bordeaux, often seen as the perfect Christmas wines. They can be confusing, but Colm will put you at ease in relation to choosing the right style for any occasion.
Join us between now and then on Friday at 5.30 for a bit of fun and some great wines.
