Things to come

April 11, 2011

After the very welcome Sunshine at the weekend, we seem to have gone straight back to miserable grey and drizzle. However grey it might be outside, things are still bright and cheerful here at Connolly’s. Last week was very busy for us, with several Corporate Tastings during the week, then on Wednesday evening we had the privilege of Arnaud Bourgeois company at Simpson’s. Fine wine and fine food, I can think of nothing better!  A big thank you to Arnaud, for taking the time visit us; and to all our guests who manage to secure a place for dinner, needless to say it was a very lovely evening.

 
This week is another busy week for corporate events; A Sparkling wine & Champagne tasting, an introduction to wine tasting and a Connolly’s challenge.  We are also hoping to confirm the next few events. During May we shall be featuring Portuguese wines, we are hoping to include a Portuguese tutored wine tasting in the shop, along with some special offers and opportunities to learn more about these great wines. Keep your eyes peeled for updates.

It started early on a Saturday in June. I’m minded to say that it disturbed my lie-in but it was way earlier than that that my phone first pinged to announce the arrival of a new website order. (I wonder if Jeff Bezos has the same app on his phone?). Ignored it, rolled over and 5 minutes later it went again. And again. And etc, etc. Finally, before switching the thing off, curiosity got the better of me and I opened up the online shop to find a stream of orders for a wine that I fell in love with 2 years ago but that we had failed to make much headway with – Coteaux du Giennois, Terre de Silex from Clement & Florian Berthier,

Although the world has been turned upside down of late, Covid-19 hasn’t interrupted our Captain Kirk approach to wine-buying – seeking out new wines, new spirits and beers, boldly drinking what no man has drunk before. Ok, that may be a slight exaggeration
