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.

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.

Thursday, 9 November 7:00pm £10.00 Presented by Thibaud Richard - Venue BOTLEY ROAD

Presented by Thibaud Richard

Bordeaux - the most famous wine region in the world that produces, at the top end, the most long lived and famous of table wines: Chateau Lafite Rothschild, Latour, Mouton-Rothschild, Margaux and Haut-Brion - the five hallowed 1st growths that collectors drool over. Wines that last for 40 years and beyond in a good vintage. And wines that cost a fortune. After all, how many of us have drank mature wines of this stature and price? Answer – relatively few. So what else has Bordeaux got to offer for the more down to earth drinker? This is the question we have set out to answer in this tasting of good quality and delicious Bordeaux wines.

Thibaud Richard, the Bordeaux specialist at Les Grands Chais de France, has selected an excellent line up of Bordeaux wines that won’t break the bank but offer fantastic value for money in terms of quality, and also serve as a fantastic introduction to Bordeaux. Amongst the 6 wines that we’ll be showing will be the excellent Chateau Sergant, Lalande de Pomerol 2011 (£18.99), the highly complex Chateau des Combes, St Emilion Grand Cru 2013 (£19.99) and the luscious Chateau Pechon 2014, Sauternes (£19.49). There are rumours of an additional surprise wine at the end that might represent the upper end of Bordeaux – something rather special. You’ll have to come along and see!
