Saturday 11th October 2014 saw the success of the first Perfect Friday Wine Customer Tasting, this year held at the beautiful local vineyard and winery, Stanlake Park.
An invitation only event which not only gave my customers a chance to taste over 20 of the Perfect Friday Wine portfolio of wine (see all here), but also for me to thank all those who have enjoyed my wine and supported me since the start, with a bit of fun on an autumnal afternoon.
Thanks to all of you that came along, it was great to see so many of you there and the day went just as planned! If you fancy a re-cap, big thanks go to not only Stanlake Park for having us, but to local blogger and photographer, Jodie Humphries for her post on her blog Maidenhead Mum and all of the photographs (see more of Jodie’s handiwork at photojodie.com).
Interestingly, the Top 6 wines, that can be purchased as a case of 6 for £75 (£71.25 if paying cash/ BACS. To order, email firstname.lastname@example.org), turned out to be:
- Calmel and Joseph Terrasses du Larzac (R) [Hands down most popular!!!]
- Domaine Chauveau Pouilly Fumé (W)
- Anna de Codorniu Blanc de Noirs (Sp)
- Leiras Albarino (W)
- Casa Silva Carmenere (R)
- Chateau Vitallis Macon-Fuissé (W) [new on the day – an unoaked, zingy Burgundy]
Extended thanks and a plug also to Mark Banham who drove all the way up from Dorset Wine School. For any budding wine students out there, the first of Mark’s WSET (Wine and Spirits Education Trust) courses start on Friday 14th November at West Dorset vineyard, Furleigh Estate.
