Wedding Gift, Wine & Cheese, Giro d’Italia

Fellow Wine Lovers,

 Fergie Headlines

… Premiership football team in shock as successful 71 year old man retires.

 … David Beckham pays tribute to 71 year old Ferguson hairdryer: “Without whom I’d have to have had a crewcut!”

 … David Moyes is Ferguson’s natural heir.

 Pink Shirt Update

The Maglia Rosa (pink shirt) is awarded to the person leading the Giro d’Italia. So far Mark Cavendish has worn it (indeed has won two out of six stages) and local boy Luca Paolini is currently wearing it. We’ve had a hilltop finish in a town called Matera that looked so beautiful we shall investigate it for possible future holidays, and tomorrow is the all-important Time Trial. Over to you Wiggo you have 34 seconds to pull back.

 Wedding Gifts

Going to a wedding over the next couple of months?

 Stuck for a gift for the lucky couple?

 We can help you with this. I attach details of a case of wine that costs £100- we regularly put together this kind of thing, with tasting notes too. If you think it’d make the perfect gift for your chums (we certainly do!) come and see us. If you don’t leave it until you’re on the way to the venue we may even be able to customise some tasting notes for you!

 A Massive Thanks

 What can we say?

 We are positively chuffed with the response to our request to VOTE FOR US. We’ve been stopped in the street, accosted in the Co-op, and emailed from all over, by people telling us they have voted.

If you are clueless as to what I’m talking about, last year we entered Time & Leisure’s Food and Drink Awards for Best Local Wine Retailer thinking we’d get our name mentioned in a local magazine. But, thanks to you lovely people, we won it!

 We now feel honour bound to defend the position, so please tell all your friends that we are nice chaps and sell the odd bottle of wine.

 Or tell them we’re odd chaps that sell a nice bottle of wine.

 Most importantly though please tell them to VOTE FOR US, just as soon as you have voted yourself with this link…

 Or you can text Time03703 to 81400 which is charged at 50p plus the one standard network rate text.

 Cheese & Wine

 23rd May is now SOLD OUT

20th June we can squeeze in 2 more people

18th July the world is your oyster. 8pm cost is £15 as usual…

 Taste this Weekend

 Given all the chat about Giro d’Italia and the fact that as far as we can see we’ve never opened a bottle with you all we shall start proceedings with Cantina Tramin Pinot Grigio (£13.99). This is the real deal from Alto Adige not one of those “can’t believe it’s not water” efforts you find all too often.

On the red front we will have a look at Oyster Shack Merlot (£6.99) a great everyday all-rounder happy with your Monday mushroom risotto or Tuesday Toulouse sausages!
