On Saturday 21st ans Sunday 22nd September Scarlet wines is holding the first of what we hope will become our annual September Wine Festival. Why September ? Well, (hopefully) good weather and a little more time to breathe after the hectic summer make it the perfect time to relax and enjoy the good things in life. Like great wine, great spirits and great food.
We have lined up about thirty wines for you to try. You will see from the following pages that these are generally grouped into grape varieties or sryle. The aim is that you can try contrasting styles of the same grape or blend.
You can taste as many or as few of the wines as you like all for £15. You will get a tasting sample of each wine, usually about 25ml. We’d love to pour you a big glass of each wine but then you would never make it to the end of the tasting! Spitoons are available on request. A discount of 10% is available for anything you buy or order at the tasting. We are also running an all day tapas menu, so if you would like some food to go with your wine please let us know.
No ticket is needed in advance. See you at the tasting!
