A Spanish saying reckons that ‘Good wine ruins the purse; bad wine ruins the stomach’.
Today’s Big Deal will certainly prove the first part of that Spanish wisdom wrong and, on the night, there won’t be a bad bottle of wine within sniffing distance.
A top notch wine tasting with the oenological experts of the Cross Stobs Bottle Shop, this Big Deal is all about delectation rather than ruination.
The theme of the night is finding terrific value in the world of wine and the Cross Stobs team are just the sort of sleuths needed to snuffle out great bottles at an easy to swallow price.
Whether wine buffs or simply enthusiastic wine-lovers, customers of today’s Big Deal will have the chance to enjoy some of the world’s best wines.
As well as a welcome glass of wine on arrival, there will be six or seven wines to taste and, at the end of the evening, guests can take home a bottle of their choice.
As well as useful background information on all the wines tasted, guests will enjoy discounted rates on wines bought from the event and a 10% discount on further online purchases from the Cross Stob Bottle Shop.
Among the varieties of wine up for tasting will be Salice Salentino; New World Viognier and Gewurtztraminer , Austrian Gruner Veltliner and South African Cabernet Franc.
One of the highlights of the evening is likely to be the amazing Spanish wines from Scottish winemaker Norrel Robertson whose El Escoces Volante, or Flying Scotsman winemaking company, is making waves in Spain’s Calatayud region.
The evening starts at 7.30pm. Drink up!
