CHAMPAGNE ROOM LAUNCH A GREAT SUCCESS!
A truly great time was had by all at our Tetbury Shop Champagne Room launch party on Friday 14th December.
Julian White, the United Kingdom Ambassador of the Confrérie du Sabre d'Or (the organization which promotes the noble art of sabrage - a technique used to open a Champagne bottle with a sabre or sword) presided over this special event, giving anyone who wanted to the chance of completing a sabrage for themselves.
By the end of an amazing evening over half of the guests had had the chance to try this technique invented by Napoleon's infamous cavalry, the Hussars at the beginning of the 19th century.
The Champagne Room is a special separate room within our Tetbury shop which is entirely dedicated to Champagne and features many of the top luxury cuvees including 12 presented in magnum format. It's an ideal place to browse and try tasting samples kept fresh by our Verre du Vin preservation system. There is a different Champagne on tasting each month to try at the special tasting counter and there is also a flatscreen TV showing videos about famous Champagnes.
For more information please contact Richard Walley at the Tetbury shop on 01666 500429 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
THE OXFORD WINE COMPANY ON BID TV
Ted Sandbach has appeared on Bid TV as the wine expert featured on their Wine Hour, and co presented two shows before Christmas with Eilidh Nairn.
In the programme Ted and a presenter who work under The Oxford Wine Company banner offered out Mixed Cases of 6 or 12 bottles at fixed prices and Ted gave information on the wines, some of which were tasted live on the show. The initial response was extremely positive and we had to take on extra staff to help pack all the Christmas orders!
Ted said: "It has been interesting and great fun to work live in front of camera. The whole experience has been remarkably successful and we may develop the programme further in the New Year."

THE OXFORD WINE CAFE – OPENED WEDNESDAY 3RD APRIL 2013
The Oxford Wine Company has taken over the former Summertown Wine Cafe site in South Parade, North Oxford following its closure in September last year and opened The Oxford Wine Café.
The Café’s concept is broadly similar to the original but with our own distinctive stamp on it. It is run by Louise Ferreira who has extensive experience in the on trade sector as well as good wine knowledge. She is assisted by sommelier Callum Peaston who was previously the sommelier at The Feathered Nest in Oxfordshire and who has been working with The Oxford Wine Company since Christmas in order to familiarise himself with the wines.
As we ship from all over the world we are able to bring wine from source and command competitive prices. As well as a changing range of boutique style wines by the glass, the Cafe also offers a full and varied range of wines by the bottle.
All wines are served in Riedel glassware and regular tasting events take place on the premises presented by Winemakers, Journalists and Masters of Wine (see Tasting Diary). In addition, the company's Theo Sloot also presents informal tastings at which customers are able to comment on new wines which may later form part of the changing by the glass range.
The Café's menu is available between 8.30am and 10.00pm and features a selection of quality dishes and a selection of fine teas and excellent coffee as before. Wi fi is available at the venue.
The Oxford Wine Café, 38 South Parade, Summertown, Oxford OX2 7JN, 01865236959, email@example.com.
Open 8.30-11.00pm Mon-Sat, 10.00-10.00pm Sun
For further information please contact Louise Ferreira on 01865 236959 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Talking Wine with Ted Sandbach - May
Those of you who follow cricket will know that England fast bowler Steve Finn batted for five hours to help England achieve a draw in the first test against New Zealand. What you won't know is that he was bribed by his captain Alastair Cook to the tune of four cases decent wine if he batted through until tea. The tension mounted as Finn played and missed on numerous occasions but the wine was finally secured. Cook said he was happy to honour the bet and said he would consider similar bribes in the future. He said: “Bribing Steven seemed to work, so maybe we can apply that again. He gets well-rewarded for his efforts today." Finn apparently wants the wine delivered in England rather than overindulge on tour - I await the order!!
