Winemaker's dinner at Pizarro restaurant with Isaac Fernández Montaña, By Alex Robertson

The winemaker of two of our most popular wines from Ribera Del Duero joined us last week for a very special master class dinner for 16 lucky guests at highly acclaimed Pizarro restaurant.  The dinner was simply sublime with a selection of tapas, roast lamb and then a selection of cheeses to finish off.  It was the perfect venue to taste the wines of Bodegas Neo, a firm favourite of Robert Parker who often rates the Punta Essencia with 96 points or more and the wines of Bodegas Arrocal, one of the best value wines from our range.

Western Australia Wine Day Tasting

Last night the Australian High Commision held a Western Australian wine tasting and we were very pleased to be representing Hay Shed Hill, Pitchfork and Kerrigan & Berry wines. We didn't really know what to expect but the tasting room was very chic and with 200 guests expected to arrive, we knew we were going to be busy.
