Event Description

It’s that time of year when our owner Simon Woods delves into his extensive private cellar to find some gems to share. We’re running two “Simon’s Cellar” events in the run up to Christmas, this one and another on 26th November looking at classic wines from France (details HERE).

Time was when the great wines of the traditional European wine regions had little in the way of competition. That’s all changed now. So join us as we look at seven styles of wine from six different countries - Argentine Malbec, Australian Shiraz, New Zealand Chardonnay, South African Chenin Blanc, Oregon Pinot Noir, Chilean Cabernet and an intriguing Rhône-inspired white blend from California. As with the French tasting, the average price of the wines will be £20+.
