Wine of the Month, Delta No More, Spanish Wine & Tapas Night

Wine of the Month for May

Better late than never! To make you aware that our Valpolicella Ripasso from Alpha Zeta, Veneto, Italy takes the hot seat as our wine of the month.

"Ripasso" is a term given to wines produced involving the use of dried grapes during the fermentation process of the freshly harvested grapes. This practice results in a deep dried fruit character in amongst the fresh red & black cherry flavours from the younger grapes. Having also been aged in oak for over 12 months provides opulence in body and mouth feel whilst remaining delicate enough to enjoy at this time of year.

You can enjoy our Valpolicella Ripasso by the glass in the Glass House or next door in the Wine Bar or to take away for £12.25.

Delta No More!

We were this week landed quite a bombshell when we learned that Delta Vineyards in Marlborough, NZ; is to discontinue our favourite Sauvignon Blanc. It was an instant hit when we opened our doors and made available in The Glass House, and has been one of our biggest selling wines to date. 
We therefore have before us the arduous task of finding a suitable replacement. Throughout the bank holiday weekend (or until our supply runs dry - whichever comes first!) we will be sampling the selection pictured. 
You are all welcome to come and try these and give your verdict, after all, these are here for all of you! 

Spanish Wine & Tapas Evening

By popular request, we are once again hosting the Spanish Wine & Tapas evening in our vintage marquee. This fabulous night will take place on Thursday 24th July. Tickets are available in advance only due to demand, we are limited on numbers and almost half are already allocated, so get in quick if you want to join us. The price is £40 per person. This includes a selection of superb Tapas & Paella menu prepared and cooked on site by our good friends at Levanter Fine Foods, accompanied by a hand selected array of Spanish wines. 

Here are a few pictures taken from last years event.        


Have a superb extended weekend, don't run out of wine, and hope to see you soon! Ben & Andrea
