when we will be tasting wines from Alsace & Portugal!

Why Alsace & Portugal I hear you ask. Aside from the obvious answer of why not, it fits with our brief of trying to taste quality wines that you may not have tried (or at least not tried recently) and to cover wine regions and styles that are not mainstream - we all like New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, but who needs to try it at a tasting?

While the line up is not yet confirmed re vintages etc, the current line up includes


Cuvee Portrait Pinot Blanc 2017 Domaine Zinck (aromas of pears, round on the palate, great freshness all the way through) 

Cuvee Portrait Riesling 2017 Domaine Zinck (  lemon, lime with some hints of green apple, lovely minerality throughout and a bone dry finish) 


Pinot Noir 'Terroir' Grand Cru 2016 Domaine Zinck (red and black fruits with aromas of black berries. Elegant, refined attack, followed by black fruits flavours, mellow tannins and some coffee notes).

Domaine Zinck is a lovely organic producer, in Colmar, near Eguishein. Philippe Zinck has 20 hectares of Organic vineyards, and his wines are getting better and better,

From Portugal,
Alvarinho Muros Antigos from Anselmo Mendes (probably the top white wine producer in Portugal!), a wine with lovely acidity and aromatic exuberance, and

Vale de Raposa Reserva 2012 Douro, from the wonderful house of Alves de Sousa (the only man to win Portuguese Wine Maker of the Year twice!). Famous for their Vintage ports, the De Sousas are making wonderful still wines as well.

Monte da Peceguina Touriga Nacional  - awarded 96 points at the International Wine Challenge.  

All our wine Tastings have limited availability and wines are tasted at our Tasting Table.
