Cool & Fresh
Venue: Josie Eastwood Fine Art, Lower Balldown, Northwood Park, Sparsholt, Winchester SO21 2LZ
With warmer weather arriving here is a tasting of about 25 unoaked wines: expect lively Sauvignon Blancs and other bright and aromatic unoaked whites, a fresh crop of rosés, and summery reds, with an accent on wines with moderate alcohol levels. We keep our eyes open for any such wines, especially from coolish regions such as the Loire, Beaujolais, Bordeaux and Italy.
This is a really lovely venue just outside Winchester, so do come and combine the tasting with a visit to see Josie Eastwood’s spring exhibition of work by some 30 living artists and ceramicists, on view both in her galleries and with sculpture in the pretty garden. Do check out www.josieeastwood.com.
10% off all bottle prices of wines in the tasting.

To our long-established, award-winning portfolio of wineries from Languedoc-Roussillon and Provence we have been adding new wines from south-west France, so here’s a chance to taste some of our latest finds. This informal, walk-round tasting will encompass some 25 wines, from simple, good value varietally labelled IGPs to stunning whites and reds from the top appellations of the south. On the tables will be fizz, whites, rosés and reds, plus, to close, delectable Vin Doux Naturel.
