Virtual Tasting Weekend

March 04, 2011

Thanks to the wonderful world of digital media we can interact with our customers in a variety of ways.

Whilst we prefer to interact with customers in the real world, we thought we might tray a little virtual tasting this weekend.

Using the discussion section of our facebook page we would like to encourage you to let us know when you are drinking one of our wines, if you like you please add tasting notes, nothing too technical just what you think; otherwise just tell us when and where you are drinking it.

I have started this off with a couple of notes on some of the wines I have been drinking this week.

The shop is of course open tomorrow 10-4pm and Chris is in attendance should you need to stock up for the virtual tasting....

(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
