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.
What better excuse for us to showcase four of our favourite wines to match a typical Thanksgiving dinner of turkey at a FREE tasting on: Thursday 19th November here at 170 Fulham Road from 16.00 to 20.00.

Wednesday 28th September - 8pm LEA & SANDEMAN, 167 Chiswick High Road W4 2DR By this time we shall be in the midst of the Rugby World Cup and immersed, therefore, in all things Kiwi. So, thought I, if the bandwagon has enough room why not jump aboard and spend a couple of hours showcasing our excellent selection of New Zealand wines.
