Our very first blind wine tasting event of the summer! A combination of great wines, food and company – all that is needed for a successful evening!

Despite the miserable British weather, spirits were high on this Friday evening as our 12 guests began to arrive.  Upon arrival all guests were offered a glass of one of our recently stocked wines – a stunning, elegant prosecco produced by Borgo Molino. This glass of fizz is a favourite of ours at White Fox Wines and is a perfect aperitif for parties and events.

The evening began with a blind tasting of four of our Spanish and Italian white wines, followed by four of our reds. Each wine was assessed and discussed individually based on its appearance, nose and taste. Marks were given out of ten for personal preference. All guests were enthusiastic and light-hearted banter led to some interesting discussions about each wine upon its reveal.

To accompany the wines, a platter of both Spanish and Italian specialties were served including homemade courgette and mint omelette,mushroom pate and crostini topped with a selection of meats and cheeses… and to finish, Italian espressos and homemade fruitcake went down a treat.

The evening ran without a hitch, showcasing our unique wine selection here in our warehouse. We now look forward to planning our next wine tasting event coming up in September. Watch this space! Due to great popularity, tickets are limited and available on a first come first served basis!
