Join us on for a virtual wine tasting!
With Christmas just around the corner, Jordan and Si Man thought this might be a great time to squeak in one more Virtual Tasting before the end of the year and what better than to focus on wines that seem to be extra relevant over Christmas. Even though we can't host you in person, there's no reason we can't all drink amazing wines together. Even if you can’t make all of them, any one of these would be a real treat.
It's interesting how certain categories in wine seem to be much more popular in the colder months. Bold Cabernets, Port and Amarone all do particularly well during the winter and we'll be featuring all three over our fifth Virtual Tasting season.
These tastings are held on a Zoom call. Details provided upon registration. There is no cost for these educational sessions. The wines are available for purchase if you wish to sip while you learn.
