£15.00
Read more

We will be opening late for this Friday night and offering a taste through 5 outstanding wines from Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey.  The tasting will  include a 2009 vintage Chardonnay, (it’s really wonderful stuff with this much age) a  Sillar from Hungary, which is a kind of very light, bright red for drinking chilled, and also a Bulgarian Pinot noir too.    

This is a great opportunity to try some amazing, but very different wines.

You will be provided with tasting notes and a map so you can follow the tour. 

Wines will also be sold separately by the glass if you would prefer to just stick to one.

This is an informal tasting so just pop in anytime between 6pm and 9pm.

We aren’t providing food but some of these wines go really well with meats or spicy cuisine, so we would recommend getting a takeaway on the way.  We are open until 9ish

We’ve been raving about Blank Bottle wines for a long time now, and they have been amongst our best selling wines this year.  For those of you that have tried any of Pieter Walser’s wines, then this is a chance to sample more of the range, and also to hear the stories about the wine!  If you don’t know them, then this is definitely not to be missed!

With Blank Bottle, every wine has a story behind it, and it’s the juice inside the bottle that reveals that story.  These are premium wines, from grapes grown across South Africa’s winelands, and made by one of South Africa’s most original winemakers.  This is going to be a seriously good tasting!
