Yesterday we held our 'Annual Tasting' - the biggest showcase event for our wines each year. As we closed the doors of the beautiful Trinity House at just after 8.30 last night the whole team were 'abuzz' after a fabulous, exhilarating day of tasting, chatting to the 20 winemakers who came to present their wines and catching up with so many customers and journalists too.
There are still some spaces left at next week’s South African Tasting. Should you be in the mood for a some crisp and refreshing white (most of which, perhaps counter intuitively, aren't Chenin Blanc); an array of finely textured reds (to the relief of many, not from Pinotage, except one that really is worth trying) and an outstanding sweetie, then advance just £15 to us to secure your place.
Following in the footsteps of some of history’s political and poetic greats I am developing an unexpected admiration for this curious sweetie. I was very pleased to be asked to join a small crowd to taste the latest release of this mythical wine: the 2008 vintage of Vin de Constance.
