First Sipping Saturday

Sipping Saturday Pic

On 30th January we had our first ‘Sipping’ Saturday. Not surprising it went down a storm! Offer people tasters of wine on a Saturday afternoon and the crowds will come! Great afternoon had by all and lots of wine racks re-stocked after #dryjanuary. Bring on #wetfebruary!

This year we are launching our new ‘Sipping Saturdays’.

Camber Wines will be opening our doors on the last Saturday of every month to give you the opportunity to taste our handpicked ‘Twelve Wines of the Month’.

Every ‘Sipping Saturday’ we will also be popping the cork on one of our top ‘Icon’ wines for the opportunity to taste something really rare and special.

January’s icon is going to be

Volnay PC Taillepieds Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils 2005

Make it a date every month!

We look forward to welcoming you to our first one:

Date: Saturday 30th January

Time: 10.00am – 4.00pm

Antinori Wine Supper

After the craziness that was Christmas we are back to normality now. There is only #wetjanuary here!

Earlier this week we held one of our ever popular wine suppers. This one was hosted by Luca Soldo, Ambassador for Antinori Wines in Italy.

The Antinori family has been involved in the production of wine for over six centuries, ever since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori entered as a member, the “Arte Fiorentina”, the Winemakers’ Guild of the city of Florence.
Today the firm is run by Marquis Piero Antinori with the support of his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra, and Alessia, directly involved in the work of the house. Tradition, passion, and intuition have been the three driving principles which have led the Marquis Antinori firm to become a leader in Italian wine. http://www.antinori.it

This evening was a great success with fantastic wines and beautiful food to compliment each wine served.

Food & Wine matching

A very generous customer of ours also found a couple of bottles of extremely old Antinori Chianti Classico in their cellar and donated them to us so we could do a raffle for our chosen charity … The Rowans Hospice.

1964 & 1966 Bottles of Chianti Classico

We managed to raise £200 and both the lucky winners were born in the year of the wine that they won … Amazing coincidence!

A great night was had by all.

The next supper in our diary is 9th March #winewednesday
