Join us for the chance for two more fabulous tasting sessions with last year's most popular 'Meet the Winemaker', Little Beauty owner Fleur McCree. This is a great event for fans of wine from Marlbourough in New Zealand.

One of our most successful courses last year was exploring the wines of Little Beauty with Fleur McCree. Fleur is dedicated to supplying quality restaurants with her range, but lockdown meant that market suddenly disappeared for her.
Fleur's personal story is fascinating and her wines were a big hit with our crowd. Last month she approached us again to arrange a second session using wines we didn't try last time. Her email arrived just as we were thinking about a 4-part course focusing on New Zealand wines.
We'll taste some of Fleur's special wines from her 'library' of previous vintages, many of which she has kept back to age. We'll look at the effect of a decade of ageing comparing a 2019 Riesling with one made in 2009, two Gewirztraminer wines highlighting different winemaking techniques and two Pinot Gris, one made in stainless steel tanks using cultured yeast and the other (Black edition) made using wild yeast and aged in barrel.
James Thorne will supply the 6-case of delicious wines at an exclusive 15% discount with free delivery in sustainable recyclable packaging.
Note - you need only consume a tasting sample of each wine opened during the session and you can follow our wine preservation tips to keep leftovers for another day.
Simply book your spaces and we'll send a link for ordering the wines. We will also send instructions for joining the Zoom calls from a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Zoom is proving to be a very sociable medium for wine tasting so we can guarantee you'll have fun! Each session will last just over an hour.
