Easter Weekend

Fellow Wine Lovers,

The scribbled message Alex wrote to me, on a scrap of paper he had clearly salvaged from the bin last night, had definite traces of Yoda:

‘if approaching long weekend, shorter email must you send!’

Frankly, having just got back from holiday, my last couple of weeks have been one long weekend, but I don’t think he was talking about that.  I think he’s referring to the upcoming Easter break which starts this evening and demands that you vacate the office until Tuesday morning, at least.  Hurray, the longest free holiday of the year is here, so the last thing I want to do is distract you with lengthy epistles about upcoming tastings and sporting trivialities.

So, as we haven’t used this format for a while, let’s bullet point things for speed and clarity:

  • Good Friday – we are open from 11am until 3pm
  • Easter Saturday – we are open from 10am until 6pm
  • Easter Sunday and Easter Monday – we are closed
  • Easter Tuesday (?) – we are open, as usual and for the foreseeable…
  • England won the rugby – hooray!
  • Afghanistan very nearly beat England in the cricket – hooray?
  • Further to our Aldi comment last week, we discover Tesco selling a champagne for £7.50
  • That’s only a couple of quid more than the cost of the required volume of grapes to make a bottle of Champagne, off the vine, prior to any vinification
  • We think the supermarkets are just super!
  • Tasting a white and a red this weekend, unusually
  • Champalou Vouvray Sec 2013 – £15.39‘very good indeed’, is what we wrote
  • Belisario Lacrima di Morro d’Alba 2014 – £13.49‘hailing from near Ancona, this is a bit special’, is just the start of an exceptional tasting note…
  • Come and see us today, tomorrow and Saturday but definitely not Sunday or Monday…

And that’s it for this week.  Have a lovely Easter, hug your loved ones and stay safe!
