We had a wonderful day at Brossay with the winemaker Hubert Duffois. The vines are now growing quickly with the warm weather and certainly well ahead of last year at the moment. We shall see how matters progress.
In the tasting room we had lots of fun and will report more fully tomorrow so we can fill you in with progress on the 2010 vintage.
Have had a busy week preparing for our three wine tasting events. A 2 day event starting tomorrow at One Marylebone, London with Luella’s Boudoir Wedding Fair. I’ve lost count of the number of bottles Ben and Simon are taking. Between 400-500 guests are expected and we’ll be popping a lot of corks. We are serving a red sparkling “le Cerisier” from Chateau de Brossay, Anjou, Loire Valley. There is no refrigeration, nor any ice-making facilities at the venue and so my fridge is bursting with bubbly this evening – mmm!? K
