Connolly's Wine School

March 22, 2012

Tuesdays 17th April, 24th April and 1st May

As you may have heard we will soon be opening a second Connolly’s retail outlet on the Dovehouse Parade in Olton, Solihull. Within this new shop will be The Tasting Room, a space with the entire purpose of wine tasting! The fantastic new facility will enable us to host many more events and with this in mind we will be starting our very own Connolly’s Wine School.
 
As we still have a few weeks of shop fitting and organising to go before the Olton premises are up and running, we have decided to begin with a mini Wine School course at our Livery Street shop in the meantime. This course will be offered at the specially discounted rate of £30 for three consecutive Tuesday night sessions.*
 
Tuesday 17th April – Introduction to tasting and evaluating wines, a broad view of viticulture, wine production, understanding wine labels and the key factors that really affect the price and quality of your tipple.
Tuesday 24th April - Old World Wines
Tuesday 1st May – New World Wines
 
Each of the sessions will be run by one of our very own experts with the aim of provide you with that extra understanding of what you like and why you like it.
 
Places at this event are strictly limited. To get more information or to reserve your place contact Eleri on 0121 236 9269,email: eleri@connollyswine.co.uk

The Half Bottle – it’s a thing of beauty

Years ago, before very clever folk started coming up with all manner of means to keep open bottles of wine (reasonably) fresh, half bottles of wine were a thing. Growers would routinely bottle a modest proportion of their harvest into half bottles and restaurants in particular, would carry them, largely for the benefit of solo diners
