Meet the Winemaker/Winery

Masterclasses and Tastings

Katie has an amazing back story and we first met her in 2018 and were as impressed with her wines as we were with her. Katie’s Languedoc ‘adventure’ was revealed by Jancis Robinson who was hugely impressed at her conviction to establish her own independent vineyard with her husband against local antipathy. Now she is coming to do a full blown tasting with 20 of our lucky customers. She has a lot of new kit so is bringing her own film and slide show and we will get taste and learn about 7 wines in her range. Carignan Gris, Macabeo, Grenache Gris, Grenache Gris , Carignan, and Along Came Jones new superstar wines.

Introduction to Natural Wines

Masterclasses and Tastings

Natural wine is the drink du jour and has grown massively in popularity over the last five years. Only a proportion of our wines are natural but 99% are organic, biodynamic, vegetarian or vegan. However we have recently grown our range and the natural wines which we do stock are good. But along with Laura Bennet we thought it was the ideal time to introduce this type of wine to a whole new audience. Laura has been in the wine trade for 20 year and currently works with the major importer Enotria and we could not think of a better person to cover this ground. Natural wines are produced without adding or removing anything during winemaking both in growing the grapes and making grapes into wine. They are different to the terms organic and biodynamic but many natural wine producers follow as a minimum biodynamic in the vineyards and farm organically. But do not worry this is not heavy duty we get to taste delicious Fizz and 5 table wines.

Bogle Wines of California

Masterclasses and Tastings

Bogle Wines are BIG in the US, but less in evidence here, except for our shop, where will sell oodles of it and it is lush. We first met Jodie whose father and mother established the winery, in 2011 and she has visited us periodically since then.

This year Jodie will be showing 9 wines, but we feel the star of the show will be the new Phantom Chardonnay Jodie always charms with fantastic stories about the winery and its goings on, but equally the stories about each individual wine form the Petit Sirah to the Chenin Blanc and the Original Bogle Phantom Red.

In the past we have co-operated with the Baltic (a Wine Tasting Dinner for local collectors), The Laing Gallery (a speed Wine Tasting night) and the Newcastle Food Festival where we devised a series of ‘Drink along with Sideways’ evenings, pairing matching wines for customers while they watched this cult movie.
