December Wine Club

The Upton Wine Appreciation Club met at the village hall this evening for a tasting presented by the Oxford Wine Company.

The evening began with four whites: a sparkling from California by the Roederer Family (£19.99), a nice alternative to champagne on Christmas morning. This was followed by white wines from France, a Touraine Sauvignon Blanc (£9.99) and a South African Delheim Gewurzträminer (£13.99).

The reds began with a Morandé Pionero Pinot Noir (£8.99), a lovely Burgundy alternative from Chile. However, this was topped by a full bodied Trapiche Cabernet Franc, a superb red from Argentina. Italy came on the scene next with a Terredora Aglianico (£13.99) from the south, and the evening was completed with a delicious dessert option in the form of Nectar Pedro Ximenez (£14.65).
