Posted on November 14, 2013 by John McCabe

On Thursday 28 November we'll have a selection of the
Gold Star Award Winners
on tasting in our Blackrock Shop.
With our neighbours (and friends) The Butlers Pantry having a tasting of some new products and some old ones as well, this is a great excuse to call in and get the best of both worlds
There is no charge for this tasting - we'll just have the wines open in the shop for you to try!
Wines on Tasting will include the following -all of which won a
GOLD STAR AWARD
at the recent Irish Wine Show -
and we'll have some Silver & Bronze Winners as well!
All tasting notes are the Judges - not mine!
