Celebrating Guy Fawkes continues as a strong tradition in the UK, and firework festivities will be happening as far afield as France, Malaysia, San Francisco and New Zealand- the latter in notably more favourable weather conditions! Globally it’s a time of celebration that eases us into the holiday season; the beginning of festive family gatherings and friendly get-togethers. Santa supporters and scrooges alike will all find themselves socialising and getting out more over the November-New year period, so make sure that you are now’s the time to capitalise on the seasonal goodwill with some exciting new and premium wines and fizz by the glass (all served by the glass thanks to Le Verre de Vin and Pod Bar…obviously!)
If you are wondering which wines to select/recommend to customers, here’s a good seasonal starting point:
For flavours as smoky as a bonfire choose South African Pinotage for red, and Pouilly Fume from France is probably the most famous smoky white wine, made from 100 per cent Sauvignon Blanc. Intense Argentinian Malbec will be a welcome warming red, spicy and peppery.
