WInter Tasting Update- A High Profile Guest

With under a week to go and just a few tickets left (https://www.connollyswine.co.uk/products/winter-wine-tasting-2017) we are very pleased to finally confirm that we shall have a member of the famed Sichel family at the Birmingham Winter Wine Tasting. 

Max Sichel

 

Sichel is an iconic name in the wine world.  A long established family with different branches operating in France, Germany, the UK and the USA. At one point while one branch was restoring Chateau Palmer another was promoting Blue Nun... It was the British branch that first set foot in Bordeaux, establishing an "acquisition office" back in 1883. The move from merchants to winemakers was started by Max's Great Grandfather Allan in the '30s when he joined forces with two other families to buy the legendary, but at that time massively dilapidated Ch. Palmer in Margaux- an investment that took over 20 years to show a return.

His Grandfather Peter repeated the trick with the purchase of the almost ruined Ch. Angludet in 1961, also in Margaux and now consistently rated as one of the finest Cru Bourgeois properties. The family has continued to expand, building new brands and wineries as well as forming Ch. Trillol in Corbieres in 1987 and Ch. Argadens back in Bordeaux in 2002. Max is now the 6th generation to join Maison Sichel and we are very honoured to welcome him to the Big Winter Tasting at the Library.
