NOW AT THE JERICHO WINE ROOMS! - The Botley Road Christmas Tasting

The Jericho Wine Rooms
The Oxford Wine Company
7 Little Clarendon Street
Oxford
OX1 2HP
Friday, 3 December 19:30 £20.00 Presented by The OWC Team

Due to the returned mask mandate and concerns over ventilation and crowding we have moved this tasting to the Jericho Wine Rooms!

Yes, the rumours are true – the Botley Road Christmas Tasting is BACK!

We are delighted to invite you to our beloved Botley Road shop for an evening of festive treats. This tasting, presented by our retail team, will kick off with a welcome cocktail, prepared by our resident mixologist Tom. We’ll then run through eight (yes, eight!) different wines, including sparkling, white and red before finishing on something sweet. We might even treat you to a mince pie!

This event has now sold out - if you would like to be added to the waiting list, please contact Emily Silva on emily@oxfordwine.co.uk

SOLD OUT - A World Tour of Whiskies

The Turl Street Cellar
The Oxford Wine Company Shop
6 Turl Street
Oxford
OX1 3DQ
Thursday, 9 December 19:30 £20.00 Presented by Tom Brady

This event is now fully booked. Please contact Tom Brady on tbrady@oxfordwine.com to join the waiting list.

The tasting cellar at Turl Street is open for business and we’re delighted to announce our first in a series of spirits tastings! This month we’re focusing on one of our favourite categories moving beyond the familiar classics and shining a light on emerging and established whisky regions alike.

We’ll take a trip through Europe before jumping on a plane (the imaginary kind) and exploring much further afield before finishing back at home with an example from The Oxford Artisan Distillery. We’ll be looking at production methods, processes and culture, distinguishing what each region brings to whisky that makes it unique to that part of the world.

Call my Wine Bluff!

The Jericho Wine Rooms
The Oxford Wine Company Shop,
7 Little Clarendon Street,
Oxford,
OX1 2HP
Friday, 10 December 19:30 £100 for a table of four Presented by Ted Sandbach and Team

To book your table of four, click here: https://www.oxfordwine.co.uk/products/call-my-wine-bluff--table-of-four

For any questions, please contact Emily Silva on emily@oxfordwine.co.uk

Call My Wine Bluff is a team game of six rounds, with tables of four competing against each other.

A hugely entertaining show pitting the wits, wine knowledge and intuition of the audience against the lying, devious and cheating expertise of the panel. With none of the pomp and ceremony usually associated with wine tasting Call My Wine Bluff is an opportunity to taste (and drink!) six wines in a competitive atmosphere.

The panel will be led by our owner and chairman Ted Sandbach who will be joined by two others. These may be drawn from our pool of expert staff, or friends of the company who fancy making a fool of themselves.

Wines are poured from covered bottles so there is no opportunity of seeing the label. The panel of three each give an amusing, informative and highly convincing description of the wine. Two of the panel are unashamedly lying through their teeth whilst the other is telling the truth. The table teams have to decide which of the panel is innocent of such deception. Points are awarded for guessing the correct wine and bonus points can be picked up for guessing the retail price.

As the rounds progress the teams - by this time enjoying the effect of the wine - are no longer basing their decisions on cold logic or sound knowledge. Instead they are beginning to realise how difficult it can be to identify the right wine.

At the end of the game, after the scores have been totted up, one team is declared the winner, and rewarded with a bottle of something delicious and fizzy!
