Alsace Wines Go To Three Wine Men Tasting

On 6th and 7th July 2013, the Three Wine Men - otherwise known as Olly Smith, Tim Atkin and Oz Clarke - came to Lord's Cricket Ground for the London leg of their tasting tour.

And Alsace wines were there too, encouraging visitors to #drinkalsace (well, taste) with a selection of 12 wines from this great French region: from fruity Alsace Pinot Blanc to dry, food-friendly Rieslings and Pinot Gris, exotic Alsace Gewurztraminers to sparking Crémant d'Alsace and even a Pinot Noir.

Napa Valley Vintners Taste London 2013

Look out London - here comes Napa!  A group of 11 vintners travelled to London in June for a packed programme of Press, Trade & Consumer events designed to explain and illustrate what makes Napa such an individual, premium wine producing region.  Tim Atkin MW chaired an 'Evolution or Revolution?' Tasting of 2002, 2005 & 2008 vintages from each of the wineries, and the 'Ultimate Burger' for Napa Cab played a starring role at the lunch that followed.  Also on the menu - vintner hosted consumer lunches, dinners and tutored tastings.  The fantastic feedback from all parties (vintners and event guests) bears testament to a growing interest in Napa wines from this market.
