#Slurpingitalian Part 1 was a great success last month on the 18th February, huge thanks from us both to all of you that tuned into the Instagram live feed. We are super chuffed with our initial slurping!
YES the SHIRTS and GREAT WINES are back!
March 23rd 7pm UK time Instagram Live
The wines can now be revealed & you can get purchasing and join along.
Lee and myself have sourced the wines (AN AMAZING DEAL TOO) from independent wine merchant HAYWINES who are based in Ledbury in my own county of Worcestershire. They import these wines directly themselves from Italy, they also have over 1,200 wines, whiskies, spirits, liqueurs, beers, ciders and perries, so plenty of choice and they provide an excellent online service for delivery country wide.
The next tasting is from the wine area of Oltropò Pavese in the north of Italy.
The area of Oltrepò Pavese is triangular territory in southern Lombardia, wedged between Piemonte, Liguria and Emilia Romagna. It is home to approximately 12,000 hectares of vineyards. I wont go into more detail about the area as you need to drop into the INSTAGRAM LIVE on the 23rd March 7pm UK time to find out more.
The wines are from : La Piotta and they are all ORGANIC and VEGAN too.
It’s a 3 bottle package from HAYWINES and seriously it’s £26.99! + P&P
However if you spend a £100 you FREE delivery and they stock over 1200 lines.
If you only want the tasting wines delivered it will still be an outrageous bargain of £36.99 delivered.
The cut off for guaranteed delivery for the 23rd is ordering by the 18th March.
If you want to check out the feed before the event HAYWINES have agreed to keep the #slurpingitalian wines on offer for you until the end of March, but will be better to taste along for sure.
Here is what will be in the tasting case:
“Pinot Grigio” I hear you say….. “have you lost your mind during lockdown” , NOPE this is fabulous PG, the vines from 1930, they still have 9 rows that were planted in 1930 yep that’s 91 years ago! Max production per year as these are now low yield is 1000 bottles approx.
The Riesling Italico is just bonkers, PET NAT (will explain more on the night) Frizzante as opposed to full sparkling (ok, to describe Frizzante – Perrier Water is full FIZZ, San Pellegrino Italian sparkling is much lighter small bubbles) Taste it and find out for yourselves.
Croatina – 100% Never had this RED? Here is your bargain opportunity, It’s delicious.
Here is the link again, the Instagram is being recorded so you can go back after just in case you don’t want to open all 3, they will keep for a few days for sure recorked and in the fridge.
Finally before you go, we will be holding a competition, will be posting on Instagram and Twitter accounts of both Lee and myself. A COMPETITION to win a bottle of La Piotta 8990 Rosso which a a blend of Barbera and Cabernet Sauvignon. All social media feeds with direct links at the end of this blog.
If you are looking for a few more wines to add to your order here are some great options also from La Piotta too. I have tried them all and I would buy all of them again.
