December Wine Tasting

Are you still a bit sad that you missed the Best of Leicester wine tasting? Or that you didn’t get along to the Loughborough Festival of Wine? Or have you never even considered going to a wine tasting before and would like to experience one in friendly, relaxed and unpretentious surroundings?

Happily I can help you out with that. If you’re still not convinced about English wine, despite me repeatedly telling you how marvellous it is, then you can pop along to Rempstone Village Hall, Loughborough on Saturday 5th December 2015 to try some spankingly good wines from not one, but three local producers!

There will be beautiful sparkling wines from Rothley Wines of… well Rothley actually, a red tasting from Welland Valley Vineyard, which is just two miles south-west of Market Harborough, and Eglantine Vineyards will be there who I imagine will be showcasing their still white wines from Eglantine Vineyards in Costock, Northamptonshire. Eglantine make a superb ice wine style dessert wine called North Star and if that’s on the tasting menu then that’ll certainly be a lovely treat.

Look how beautiful the grapes at Rothley are!

Tickets are £15 and include wine on arrival, a light supper and the tasting itself – which is an absolute steal for an event like this! For more information or to book tickets, see the village website or call Barbara on 07758 464 515. Help support small local producers and grab yourself a slice of fried wine gold at the same time.
