July 25th – A Taste of Summer
Celebrating the great British Summer, Pierre will showcase a selected group of wines that best represents summer. Think light reds (possibly chilled), crisp and zesty whites with a few tropical notes along the way and you won’t be far off. He’ll also look at the best sparkles to serve at your summer party and how to impress your friends at your next BBQ.
August 29th – Birthday Celebrations with Hattingley Valley
What a great way to close the summer tasting season and celebrate our 6th birthday! We are joined on the river by Gareth, the Commercial Director for Hattingley Valley in Hampshire, to talk through and taste their award-winning portfolio. Hattingley Valley represents everything that is truly fantastic about English wine and this is a great opportunity to understand why some of the top houses in Champagne are sitting up and taking notice of what is happening this side of the channel.
