The Latest – July 9th 2017 – Summer sale!!
With summer holidays on the horizon, you may wonder how you can bring home those incredible wines you tasted whilst you were away safely and securely. The VinGardeValise VGV02 wine carrying suitcase is the perfect answer to this problem which allows you to bring home from 2 to 12 bottles INTACT!
We will soon be moving over to the new improved version VGV04 but in the meantime we have a small stock of the VGV02 (grey only) which we are offering at the discounted price of £199.00 instead of the regular £297.00. Hurry whilst stocks last – the VGV04 will cost over £300. Please note, this cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount, including members. To take advantage of this offer please shop here.
In the meantime we have been continuing to post you wine news from around the world which should interest you whilst I have been reviewing a seriously good deli and grill near Marble Arch – open all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner with the emphasis on sourcing the best local ingredients. I also report on what’s new at Bordeaux’s Vinexpo exhibition in a sweltering 39 degrees of heat, whilst Michael Edwards provides details of a special new multi vintage blend from Veuve Clicquot and tastes some equally remarkable old vintages.
Our summery Sancerre wine dinner to be held on The Yacht, London, is selling out fast and there are now only 8 places remaining, so if you are interested, book now before it is too late.
Members, of course, can claim their 15% discount once they have logged in by going to the special page for this event. Members, too, can download a pdf of the July updates of Wine behind the label in advance of publication of the 11th edition in the next few days – we’ll email you when it is ready. And also to continue with our summery theme, members can get access to Sonia’s new recipe for Steak Tartare, with my wine recommendations for this somewhat aggressive dish.
