POSTPONED "The Liberator" South African Wine Tasting with Richard Kelley (MW)

Apologies; unfortunately we have had to regrettably postpone this event until a new date comes up in the New Year, refunds will be available to all those who have bought tickets 

On the 8th of November, Richard Kelley will be hosting an evening of South African wines.

Richard has created a series of wines that hail from the far reaching corners of the "Cape", many of which are of unique stature not normally associated with South Africa at all
"The Liberator" wines are a Rick's selection of finds from some of the most respected producers that may only experiment with lesser known varietals or simply form part of a blend to a final wine, thus never deemed to be commercially available; Rick is on a mission to Liberate these rare finds. In the majority they and only a single vintage and of very limited release; once they're, they're gone!
Each wine always has its own story to tell, this comes in the form of an Episode, a tale of its untimely existence in the form of a comic strip; see an example here for one particular wine we stock already; Liberator Episode 10

We have the privilege of tasting some of his latest releases in the series.

Richard Kelley holds a qualification of the highest form within the wine world, one of the toughest tests that exist, The Master of Wine where only 369 exist throughout the world. Richard gained this accolade in July 1995 after learning his trade in some top wineries in South Africa, and whilst his experience is second to none regarding wines from this region he also specialises in wines from the Loire Valley, of which we are proud to have many adorning our shelves.

Tickets for this evening are £35 which will include an array of tapas style dishes & platters. These must be paid for in advance, only 16 places remain
arrival by 7pm for 7.30 start. We hope to see you here!
