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....

Yup, we’re going all Teutonic for the month of April with tastings (both in-store and virtual), a smashing and stupidly discounted “anything but Riesling” mixed case of Germanic joy and a whopping 10% discount off all German wines throughout the month.

10 % discount you say……?
