Carmelita has been on the road and we've had a brilliant weekend taking our wines to Manchester.
First stop was the Three Wine Men show at the stunning Manchester Town Hall. The three biggest personalities in wine; Oz Clarke, Tim Atkin MW and Olly Smith, were there to host this fantastic pre Christmas wine tasting extravaganza and it was a pleasure to share our story and award winning wines with so many red wine lovers!
A quick turnaround and we were hosting a private tasting evening for Manchester friends and contacts. The event was held at the glamorous Townhouse hotel and after a welcome from James, guests enjoyed a glass of each of our delicious wines with tasty sweet and savoury canapés. It's always a pleasure when people discover Carmelita for the first time. There was a particular buzz about our Gold IWSC 2016 award winning Cabernet Franc. Sadly, this wine has now sold out but we'll soon be celebrating the arrival of our new 2013 vintage. The evening was made extra special by Tim, Oz and Olly popping in for a night cap at the end of the night - thank you guys!
Next stop? A Carmelita private tasting in Amersham on Thursday - we're looking forward to another great evening!
