Annual Christmas Wine Tasting

at The Biscuit Factory The Upper Gallery Newcastle upon Tyne
Tuesday 19th November 2013 18:00pm

Selecting the wines to show has been a difficult task, but also a pleasurable one!

Champagnes from Joseph Perrier will be on the agenda, Matin Gamman MW will be there to guide you through the various styles and advise you on what bubbles you should be drinking over the festive season.

During the year we have introuduced a number of new wines to our list.  Domaine Bergon in the Vin de Pays d'Oc in particular, their Pinot Noir Prestige which we particularly proud of, will be available for you to try - it's cracking valule too.  The Languedoc-Roussillon is a favourite region of ours and we always like to show a few from this area, the Picpoul de Pinot from Domaine Felines Jourdan is one we have shown in the past and will be again, Picpoul has become a bit of a cult wine - so come along and try it and see what everyone is going on about.

Jumping to the otherside of the world, wines from Argnetina and Chile will be on show.  The Los Haroldos range from Argentina is getting a bit of a following from our customers, in particular their Torrontes which everytime we have shown it this year it has gone down a storm.  I must confess it is a particular favourite of mine as it is so versitile, great on its own as an aperitif, but equally can be a great partner with food.

Heading over the Andes to Chile there will be wines on offer from Vina Casa Silva, manning the stand will be the enthusiastic Johnny Bingham - a true ambassador to this winery.  Johnny has been a regular at our Wine Tasting and he and his wines never disapoint.

South Africa will feature, in May this year we introduced two new entry point wines from Andersbrook a Shiraz and a Chenin Blanc, these are authentic wines which are ideal to accompany those midweek supper parties.  We are also hoping to show a cracking Sauvignon Blanc - if it arrives to the UK in time.

For those of you who are feeling really adventurous we intend to show our first wine from Turkey, the Vouria from Uria Sarapcilik.  It is a bit of a blockbuster - but worth a try!

We have not finsihed our final selection yet, so we are sure their will be something on offer that could well take your fancy, so get the date in your diary and come along to the Biscuit Factory where you will receive a warm welcome and get the chance to taste some great wines.
