Treat Dad this Father’s Day

Treat Dad to his favourite tipple on Sunday 16th June 2019. We have put together a selection of gifts to put a smile on his face and help him enjoy his day. All wines are available to order online or call into our shop in Crossgar for a browse where one of our wine advisors will be able to assist you.


Red Wine

Chateau Chemin Royal 2009, £16.99

Dense, oaky blackberry and black cherry nose. Rich and full-bodied, but has ample fruit and some chocolatey tannins. A big wine but not ungainly. Solid and has potential. Good length, chewy finish. An excellent Bordeaux that won’t break the bank.

Neudorf Tom’s Block Pinot Noir 2016, £22.50

“Very fresh and lively with real easy appeal without being sweet. There’s a jewelly core here. Well done! This has come nicely out of its shell. Really rather long.”

Jancis Robinson, Purple Pages, May 2019


White Wine

A A Badenhorst Family White 2017, £22.39

White peach, yellow apple, heather and verbena notes are still tightly coiled at the core. This has purity and depth, and should unwind well in the cellar. This South African blend is made up predominantly with Chenin Blanc.


La Clef du Recit Sancerre Blanc 2017, £19.99

A beautiful Sancerre that is richly textured with ripe gooseberry aromas, bracing acidity and flinty-smoke flavours.  A classic wine from the Loire Valley that never fails to delight.


Other Options

An Afternoon in Marlborough with Forrest Estate, £10

Saturday 22nd June 2.00 – 3.30pm

Join us in the Tasting Room in Crossgar for a tasting with Hamish from Forrest Estate.

Taste five wines, some nibbles and a few anecdotes from Hamish.
