Taste The Wine

A couple of weeks ago a new organic wine shop opened towards the top end of Central Road (Number 40 to be precise). As it happens they are offering a free wine tasting this evening as a sort of grand opening event.

I popped in last weekend and met the owners Dimitri and Alex and sampled a couple of items they were offering. I'm certainly no professional wine taster but I like to believe that I've developed a rudimentary palate over time. And from what I tasted I would dispel any idea that organic wine is inferior to it's non-organic cousin.

This looks to be the first and only shop in the UK specialising in organic wines. You can see their website here: But most importantly you can taste some for yourself between 4pm and 8pm this evening.

Update (Saturday 9th July)

Well I managed to persuade myself to get along and taste a bit more wine at their grand opening last night. There was a constant dribble of people dropping in for the occasion with about 7 customers when I arrived at around 7:20. Most people looked to be enjoying themselves and the offerings enough to hand over a little hard earned cash for some take home varieties as well (self included).

Dimitri and Alex are looking to put on events like this quite often and additionally will usually have a bottle or two of something open for tasting to help them get to know the sort of wines preferred by Worcester Parkers.

I have now managed to add a few photos from last weekend and one from last night too.
