Wine Tastings

Wine Tastings on Saturdays or Sundays are a regular feature at our Wine Barn. Wine producers are often in attendance to pour their own wines and answer all questions about them.
These are very popular and enjoyable occasions where one can taste real quality wines at very reasonable prices.
Remember, we specialise in advising you on, and recommending to you, wines that will suit your palate and your pocket.

Join us at our 1st Autumn Tasting on Sunday 30th September from 11am to 3pm.

During the last few months we’ve had several successful trips in search for lots of new wines.
 We’ll have at least 10 new wines on taste including:-
#   The newly released English sparkling wines from Fairmile Vineyard in Henley on Thames with owner
Jan Mirkowski in attendance.
#   New and award winning wines from Les Vignerons du Castelas in the Cotes du Rhone.
#   The new vintage of the Esporao Reserve White, from Alentejo in Portugal.
#   The staggering Pfaffl Gruner Veltliner dry white and Zweigelt/Pinot red, from the European Winery of the Year 2016.
#   A selection of new wines from several producers in Spain, some value for money, other of superb quality.
#   The new 2015 Esprit de Parenchere, a great vintage from a top producer.
 An lots more….
 This is a unique occasion, book your places and we look forward to seeing you on the day.
