Wine School, Cheese & Wine Tasting, @parkvintners

Dear Out of Office Reply,

We wondered if you might keep this handy in the Inbox for the person that normally sits in front of you.

I’m sure they’ll want to read this when they get back. I know they’ll have missed the delicious tasting at the weekend, but there is a chance that some of the other information will still be pertinent.

If you feel the need to share this email with covering desks please do go ahead, we’re always happy to be seen with new eyes.


Given the huge sums offered for Gareth Bale it would appear the silly season is well and truly upon us. Escaped chimpanzees have been lured back to their homes at Twycross Zoo with ice cream, and apparently the England team are ‘not thinking of a whitewash’ in the Ashes. What kind of motivation is that? Come on chaps get some ambition…

Park Vintners Wine School – term begins 18th September at 8pm.

We still have a couple of places left if you’ve been promising yourself. We’ll give you no homework or exams. You’ll taste around 60 wines during the course of six weeks and we think it’ll be more fun than that woodwork course you were considering at evening classes. Full details attached.


Keep sending your pictures as you travel with a bottle of Moutard (a half or magnum works too!) Use the hashtag above, we are @parkvintners on twitter! There’s a prize to be had.

Cheese & Wine Tastings

Tasting This Weekend Those of you receiving this from your ‘Out of Office’ will have missed this bit.

We thought we’d throw caution to the wind this week and show a red and a white. I know that’s what we normally do, but we don’t normally chill the red.

So if you’d form an orderly queue at the tasting table for…

Manawa Sauvignon Blanc 2011 (£12.49) is made by the team at Seresin Estate in Marlborough, New Zealand.

Bourgogne Grand Ordinaire 2010 (£11.99) is from Domaine Faiveley in Burgundy. Nothing ordinary about it at all if I’m honest,

Pinot Noir + a splash of Gamay = big smile on face.

So thank you ‘Out of Office’ app for making sure this reaches its destination.

To the six real people reading who were too slow with the holiday forms I can offer a shrug of the shoulders, a cyber-hug, and an invitation to try something chilled at the tasting table.

 Wayne & Alex
