Hello and welcome to the first Wine Club case of 2017.
I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year, and have fully recovered from the multitude of great wine and food you have doubtless consumed over the festive period. 2016 was a great year here at Weavers and we're looking forward with excitement to 2017 and hopefully some cracking new additions to the range. Our tasting program for the year is now set with the Wine Club Members scheduled for Friday 9th June. It's always a really popular event so make sure you check your diaries and keep the date free.Read More
It really is a fantastic case of wine to kick start the new year. We've opted for some winter warmers, such as the Syrah and the Gigondas, that should fit the bill on a cold evening. I've also included one of my favourite new additions to the range - the Kaapzicht Chenin Blanc, a wine that really shows why South Africa has built such a great reputation with the grape variety. I've also bowed to some pressure from Chris to include the Solitar Riesling from Prum - I'm told this grape is enjoying a 'hipster' revival, but this example of a traditional style is why we've backed Riesling throughout the unfashionable years.
We're also pleased to announce that we've launched mobile and tablet versions of our website. This should make it easier for you to view the products that are in each case and read all about the producers. It also gives you a better opportunity than ever to review the wines and leave comments on the website, an easy way of letting us know how well the wines have gone down.
Here's wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous new year, thank you once again for all your support.
