Fellow Wine Lovers,
As news reaches us that Queen are releasing a beer brewed in the Czech Republic to commemorate the 40th anniversary of “Bohemian Rhapsody”, Fleetwood Mac play an epic run at the O2 whilst The Who fill Hyde Park, we can’t help but think that we should be developing things a bit newer, a bit more “here and now”.
So we will. Well, after a bit of pre-amble, we will.
Many of you have stood by our tasting table, sampling some of our delicious wines, ruminating on what fun it would be if Wimbledon Park had a nice bar to have a drink at. Not that place down the road where the Invisible Man and his mates drink, not a cab journey away to the village, just somewhere local where one could enjoy a glass of wine. Well, we had that self-same chat with a new customer who’s recently moved to the area and, being far more dynamic than these two fossils, has done something about it.
Tonight sees Wimbledon Park’s very first neighbourhood pop up bar with Saucer & Cup Lates.
From 7.30pm at the Saucer & Cup, just across the road from us, Daniela will be hosting with locally sourced craft beer, wine and gin. There will be small plates of food too and we understand that 10% of profits will go to Foodcycle. So, no excuses folks, pop in and have a glass or two since it’d be a shame to let an evening like this slip through our fingers (and the more you drink the less we have to take back!)
Rosé Tasting – SOLD OUT
If you’ve meaning to book but haven’t…well you were warned!
Wine School – Autumn Term

Tasting This Weekend
Light and summery would seem sensible. With this in mind we will open a bottle of Domaine Clos des Eglantiers Rivaner 2014 – £12.89 which continues to be our best-selling white wine from Luxembourg; mooching around, keeping itself to itself, we have a delicious red from Australia – Innocent Bystander Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2013 – £15.99. Both fab, both light and summery, both open – come and join!
If you can’t make it in this weekend but miss seeing Alex…
… then all is not lost! He’ll be propping up a table at the annual Wimbledon Park Primary School Summer Fair this Sunday, between 12pm and 3pm. He’ll be bound to have something fun to taste whilst watching his daughter get high on candyfloss and trying to keep his son away from the beer stall. Give him a wave, if nothing else….
¡Hasta la vista, mister!
