Invitation to our next Tasting – Wednesday 9th October – The Winery W9
You are invited to our tasting on Wednesday 9th October from 17.00-21.00h at our shop in Clifton Road W9 when we will featuring new arrivals and some Winery Classics.
We will be kicking off with our longest-running, all time best-selling, hardy perennial Champagne Amyot. We have been importing their fabulous broad-flavoured Champagne since the late 1990s. Let’s remind ourselves why!
Our annual shipment from Aurelien Chatagnier arrived from the lawless northern Rhone on Friday. We’ll be showing his gently aromatic, classy Viognier and vibrant, muscular Syrah.
We have two more new dry Rieslings in our line-up. One from the Mosel, the other from Franken.
Wegeler has two estates, one in the Rheingau and one on the Mosel. Jewel in the crown on the Mosel is the legendary Bernkasteler Doctor vineyard, which produces a wine of rare finesse. We were also very taken by their village-level Bernkasteler when we visited last month and hastily bundled up some cases into the van.
Graf von Schonborn also has two estates, one in the Rheingau, the other in Franken. We’ll be showing a lime zesty, dry Riesling from the volcanic landscape of Franken.
We have two Italian reds in our line-up, from opposite ends of the country.
Valentina Cubi’s breezy, pure organic Valpolicella Iperico from the north, near Verona.
From the south, from Puglia, the heel of Italy, we have another long-established Winery Classic – Schola Sarmenti. We’ll be showing Armentino, a 50/50 blend of Negroamaro and Primitivo (thought to be the Italian cousin of Zinfandel).
We do hope you can join us and, as usual, feel free to bring a friend.
Our following tasting at The Winery is scheduled for Wednesday, 20th November when we will be joined by Gerrit Walter and his dry Rieslings and Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir) from the Mosel.
