Father's Day

Father's Day

Father's day is nearly upon us, Sunday June 17th. So if you feel that the father figure of your family needs some treats then here are some delicious ideas. Some excellent drinks to enjoy while watching the World Cup, or if that's not your thing, then a quiet Moment of Silence in the garden maybe.
Papa Figos (Portugal) - RRP £11.49
Fathers Day Offer - £10.00
This wine is superb value and has Papa in the name. This actually refers to one of the rarest birds in the Douro region, but a perfect wine for a gift. A blend of indigenous Portuguese varieties, its floral with notes of rose and violet, on the palate full of red fruits, smooth tannin and is elegant and balanced. Great with pork, red meats and anything from a BBQ.
Moment Of Silence (South Africa) - RRP £16.99
Fathers Day Offer £15.00
This is from one of our favourite producers in South Africa, Blank Bottle winery. Made from a blend of grapes that varies with each vintage depending on what has the best fruit. This has some Chenin Blanc, Grenache Blanc and Viognier in the mix and is excellent! Get your Dad to grab a corkscrew, ice bucket, book or the Sunday papers and head to a quiet spot for a well deserved moment of silence.
Elements of Islay Full Proof Peat - RRP £42.50
Fathers Day Offer £38.50
How about this blended whisky? It's a full-throttle Islay dram for sure! Warm and leathery with thick-cut bacon, seashore campfires and roasted fruit: sweet apple and lime with a sprinkle of caster sugar. Layers of smoke and dark-chocolate limes envelope the palate and are intertwined with softer lemon oil and barbecue sauce, with hints of roasted spices and barrel char, complementing the peat and smoke.
Perfect for drinking beside a campfire, on the rocks throughout a BBQ, and great in cocktails, especially a Rob Roy or Rusty Nail.
Bordeaux Wine Tasting
How about treating your Dad to tickets to our Bordeaux Wine Tasting on the 19th June? We still have a few spaces available so book while you can.
Tickets to Bordeaux Tasting
How about lunch out at Fourth & Church? They have a superb seasonal menu and some delicious drinks on the wine list. I would recommend the Monsieur Martinez using Monsieur gin from Italy. Or one of our favourite sparklers, the Gusbourne Estate English Sparkling wine by the glass.
For still wines we suggest trying the
Gladstone Sauvignon Blanc and Mon Ross Barbera, both great value and amazing food wines.

If you haven’t yet come over to the orange side, here’s what you’re missing out on.
