Founded by a cooper (that’s barrel-maker to the rest of us) by the name of André Michel Pierlot over two centuries ago in the year 1812, Champagne Laurent Perrier has risen from somewhat humble beginnings to become the world’s third best-selling Grande-Marque Champagne. These days a bottle of Laurent Perrier begins its life in the vineyards of Champagne, matures in the 800m of underground cellars that lie beneath the Chateau, and is eventually bought in one of the 120 countries the house exports to.

This tasting will be a true masterclass, led by Laurent Perrier expert David Green. We will taste five Champagnes, from an exclusive look at the brand new La Cuvée, to the world-famous Laurent Perrier Rosé, the spectacularly rich Laurent Perrier Vintage 2004, and the final wine, the glorious Laurent Perrier Grand Siècle This is a tasting not to be missed!

£25/ticket, fully refundable against a purchase of two or more bottles of Champagne!

Ticket price fully refundable against a two-bottle purchase!

Tuesday, 11 July 6.30pm £10.00 Presented by Elliot Awin - Venue SUMMERTOWN

Presented by Elliot Awin

6.30pm, The Oxford Wine Café, 38 South Parade, Oxford, OX2 7JN

£10.00 per person, payable in advance by phone or at the bar. Numbers are limited and early booking is recommended. Contact the Café on 01865 236959 or if you are unable to reach us via phone, please contact Rebecca on rs@oxfordwine.co.uk and leave your contact phone number and name.

In this tasting we’ll be staying off the beaten track of the large, big production wineries and concentrating instead on some special smaller, family owned wineries. Boutique producers are interested in a hands-on approach to winemaking which their smaller productions allow. Quality is the watchword here with dedicated winemakers producing superb quality premium wines from carefully tended vines. In this unusual tasting we’ll taste wines from wineries such as The Gun Dog Estate, which was established in 2006 when the Burton family acquired a small ten year old vineyard in the Canberra region. Their passion for high quality, regionally distinct wine has inspired them to pursue two of Australia’s most unique and highly acclaimed wine styles; Hunter Valley Semillon, and Canberra Shiraz. Then there’s Payten and Jones – and you couldn’t get more boutique than them! Behn Payten’s day job is cider maker and brewer at Napoleone Brewery and Ciderhouse. Troy Jones also makes cider and somehow, in the scraps of free time they have left from their respective jobs, the two of them also manage to collaborate on their own wine label Payten & Jones, producing a range of wines that is well worth seeking out. And that’s just two of the unusual producers we’ll be looking at in this amazing tasting!

Presenter Elliot Awin of ABS Wine Agencies has very carefully put together an amazing range of six premium wines that we guarantee you haven’t tried before. This will be a very special tasting!

Created from rice and water, Sake has been fundamental to Japanese culture for 2500 years. Today it is a phenomenally varied category – sweet or dry, clear or cloudy, still or sparkling, aged or youthful.

We were surprised at the huge demand for our Sake tasting last year, so we are running another - join us to get into the Japanese spirit.

ESK VALLEY – HAND CRAFTED WINES FROM NEW ZEALAND

With its terraced vineyards set against the Pacific Ocean, Esk Valley is a colourful gateway to the Hawke's Bay region. Grapevines were first planted in the Esk Valley area in 1933 after an earthquake altered the course of the Esk River in 1931. Sir George Fistonich of Villa Maria Estate was intrigued with this small winery’s unique location and its potential with vineyard holdings in the famous Gimblett Gravels area. He purchased it in 1987 and focused on establishing Esk Valley’s unique hand crafted reputation. Esk Valley operates as a boutique winery with its own facilities and winemaking team and the winemakers at Esk Valley craft their award-winning wines in a simple, honest, hands-on way. Over the last thirty years or so, the Esk Valley winery has seen a few changes – most obviously in the quality of the wines made. Stainless steel fermentation tanks have been introduced to complement the original concrete vats, which have proved ideal for use as the foundation for crafted winemaking.

Patrick McGrath MW will present a mix of superb wines from this unique winery, many of them new to us.

BODEGAS BERONIA - CLASSIC RIOJA

The Oxford Wine Company Shop,
167 Botley Road,
Oxford,
OX2 0PB
Thursday, 19 October 7:00pm £10.00 Presented by David Hayward - Venue BOTLEY ROAD

Presented by David Hayward

7:00pm, The Oxford Wine Company Shop, 167 Botley Road, Oxford, OX2 0PB

£10.00 per person, payable in advance by phone or in the shop. Numbers are limited and early booking is recommended. Contact Emily on 01865 249500 or if you are unable to reach us via phone, please contact Emily on emily@oxfordwine.co.uk and leave your contact phone number and name.

The name Beronia is linked to the history of the land on which it lies. In the 3rd century BC, the area known today as La Rioja was inhabited by the Berones, a Celtic warrior tribe whose earliest settlements established the boundaries of the Beronia region, today´s La Rioja. Founded in 1973 by a group of wine-loving entrepreneurs, Bodegas Beronia makes Reserva and Gran Reserva wines in the pure, traditional Rioja style. They are famous for the use of barrels made from both American and French oak, and for making great quality wines of superb Riojan character. Wines maturing in the barrel cellars are subject to Gregorian chant music 24 hours a day which the Bodega says improves the wine.

David Hayward will take us through a fascinating range which encompasses both pure traditional styles and more modern, single grape varietals – all made by this superb producer.
