Christmas is fast approaching and we have finalised some dates for our annual Christmas wine tastings at Fareham Wine Cellar. Please find more information about the wines, and a couple of special offers that will be available on the day, further down.
As usual, these are informal tastings at the Fareham Wine Cellar, however, I would appreciate an RSVP so I can have a rough idea of numbers.
Very advance diary date!!! We will be celebrating out 21st anniversary next year and we are holding a 21st Anniversary Portfolio Wine Tasting at Lysses House Hotel. It will be a Wednesday in October 2012 – I will let you know when we have a firm date.
