Fête du Vin 2017
Saturday 24th June, 11.30am to 3.00pm; and from 4.00pm to 7.30pm
Venue: Our Shop - and a marquee! – in Twyford
A Fête du Vin indeed, a celebration of French wine. We have invited half a dozen of our long-term French partners - from Bordeaux, the Rhône, the Languedoc, Loire and Alsace - to come over to the UK and present their wines to our customers. Alongside their tables we will have lots of other bottles open, so this should be a great survey of over fifty French wines, from daily drinking to Champagne and fine Burgundy. All wines on tasting will be specially discounted for the day, with a minimum discount of 10% by bottle, and in most cases more.
Those of you who came to our shop reopening last September clearly enjoyed the relaxed experience. Well, this midsummer… there will be a marquee; there will be a lot more wine; there will be charming, mainly young, winemakers, talking English with varying accuracy but all delivered in that brilliant accent; there will be music from accordionist Fifi La Mer; and more food for you to buy, with a free accompanying glass of decent plonk too.
You can choose to come to one of two sessions: from 11.30am to 3pm; and from 4pm to 7.30pm. This is so we can spread customers evenly through the day - and we will limit numbers - ensuring a good time can be had by all and you don’t have to fight through a scrum to taste.
Tickets will be a modest £10 a head for each session; more than offset by the good discounts on all French wine bought on the day to take away or for delivery later. Do let us know at 01962 712351 or email@example.com if you would like to come and for which session; and you can buy tickets online for the morning session HERE and for the afternoon session HERE.
