Christmas Wine Tasting Shenanigans

 

And what a tasting it was! A huge thank you to all of you who supported our annual event on Saturday 21st November, attending and actively participating, I think most of you were persuaded to try the odd wine or two!

We thoroughly enjoyed the gathering with our ever-supportive and enthusiastic suppliers waxing lyrical about wines, vineyards, wineries and places of beauty whilst serving lashings of wine. Listening to the word on the street the atmosphere was buzzy and fun, just what we had hoped for.

There were some firm favourites on the day, to name a few…

Charles Smith’s The Velvet Devil Merlot 2013,USA £13.50. It’s all in the name! Unctuous smooth bottled dark fruits and cedar.

Domaine Ferret Pouilly Fuissé 2013, France £23.50, our 2015 terrace wine still proved incredibly popular, surprising new-comers and pleasing the tried and tested.

When it came to Sparkling wines the Val D’Oca Le Rive di Colbertaldo Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore 2013, Italy £13.50 went down a storm, a beautifully dry, flavourful fizz (We’ve got a few on the shelves just in case you didn’t get chance to sample it). Whilst at the other end of the scale Billecart-Salmon Champagnes greeted and delighted the crowd.

We’re looking forward to next year’s annual extravaganza, but in the meantime keep an eye out for more BinTwo tastings in the New year.
