Next tasting at The Wineyard: Wines of Argentina

January 9, 2010

Taking place at 7pm on Thursday 14/1/2010, our next wine tasting will be focused on showcasing some fabulous wines from Argentina. The usual suspects will be on show of course; Torrontes and Malbec in particular being the grapes that have really put this country on the wine map, but we’ll also have some other fascinating wines to try such as a Cahors from France (85% Malbec) which should make for an interesting comparison, and a lovely sparkling wine to kick the night off in style. Check out this photo set on Flickr of the provisional wine choices – 10 bottles in all.

If you’re interested in joining us, tickets are £10 each and selling quickly. You need to buy them in advance so we know how much wine we can afford to open and how many we’re preparing food for, as we give out samples of various foods from our deli range with each wine. We normally taste 8 or so wines (if more tickets sell, we can open more wine – so invite your friends to join us too!) and will be on hand to talk you through the wines and their producers. We also offer 10% discount an anything purchased on the night (food and drink) and if anything sells out, we’ll give you the discount on your orders and will let you know as soon as we get it back in stock.

To purchase tickets you can either come and see us in the shop (23 Princes Crescent, Bare), or call us on 01524 400011 and pay by card over the phone. Any questions, post a response on here or look us up on Twitter ( or Facebook (Search “The Wineyard & Deli”).
