Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasting The 2015 Vintage - Wed 26th February
Wednesday 26th February
Stand-up Tasting in Our Cellar
6.30pm - 8.30pm
The story of the Stellenbosch Cabernet Collective begins with a tale of passion and creativity. Rising out of an alluring landscape, rich history, vibrant culture and unparalleled architecture, Stellenbosch is one of South Africa’s most prominent wine producing regions and tourist destinations. Today, the region has become the focus of many profoundly adept oenologists and agronomists who use their unique premium local African terroir to produce top quality Cabernet, among other wines. A love for country, community and producing fine wine has given rise to a collaborative group of 35 members who desire to see this region's Cabernets performing against the best on a global platform.
To highlight the groups work, we will profile the “Vintage of the Century” in South Africa with a tasting of over 25 Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 wines from the Stellenbosch Cabernet Collective members. Greg Sherwood MW will be on-hand to answer any questions.

Tues 3rd March
5.00pm to 8.30pm
£45.00 per person (redeemable against cases ordered on the night).
“2015 is a fantastic vintage for Brunello and without doubt the best vintage since the legendary 2010 vintage. Many experts reckon this vintage may be even better with the wines having extra freshness.”
Our March Montalcino tasting is almost upon us. The demand for these exotic Tuscan wines remains as strong as ever with more and more selling out upon release. Always regarded as one of our most enjoyable tastings of the year, don’t miss this unique opportunity to taste a superb selection of pre-release Brunello wines from the 2015 vintage.
Wines on taste will include: San Polino, Gianni Brunelli, Caprilli, Canalicchio di Sopra, Altesino, Poggio Antico, La Potazzine, Castiglion del Bosco, Castello Romitorio, Banfi, Sesti, Salicutti, Mastrojanni and Gaja.
Nial's Tasting School - Sat 4th April
Saturday 4th April
Nial has spent many years as a Sommelier and restaurant manager and enjoys nothing more than talking about wine! This makes him the perfect candidate to run our Intro to Wine courses.
Nial will be hosting an informal and informative session in our cellar at 105 Old Brompton Road. Looking through a glass of wine, he'll touch on the basics of tasting, grape varieties and geography. The aim of these sessions is to give you a better understanding of wine and allow you to make a more informed decision on your next wine purchase. We will taste 8 wines - no previous wine tasting experience needed!
