We had a great night last night at our Christmas Tasting. We were joined by over 100 clients and all 70 wines were showing extremely well. We were also really pleased to welcome Francois Villard (Condrieu), Mark Bingley (Louis Roederer) and Shane Fazackerley (Bodegas Altanza, Rioja). A huge success!
