Arriving this Spring…

This time of year is for many the season of new life as Spring takes hold. For us at A&H this also heralds new wine!

 

We may have mentioned once or twice that we work particularly hard from January to March tasting wine… a lot of wine… with the selfless goal of finding something exciting for you, our dear customers, to enjoy.

 

Here we've picked out three of our highlights from over thirty new wines recently added to our range:

 

Firstly, Fontodi Lamole Chianti Classico 2015 – £25.99 a bottle.

Des' words, "This is the best Chianti Classico I have EVER tasted!” That is quite an accolade if you know anything about the range of Des' wine experience. 

 

Secondly, we've selected Calusari Romanian Pinot Rose – £7.49 a bottle.

Paul says, “Cosy flavours of raspberry, rhubarb and Refreshers, perfect for when I’m watching Maid in Manhattan (again).”  

 

Our third pick is the excellent Kendermann Kalkstein Sauvignon Blanc – £9.99 a bottle.

Phil says; “Sauvignon Blanc from Germany that would beat many a Marlborough.”

 

Don’t forget, at our Spring Wine Fair you can try these and many of our latest listings all in one room along with other fabulous wines we've picked out because we think they deserve to be centre stage. 

Visit us at this year's Yorkshire Business Market

 

You have to be in it to win it! (Or at least come along and soak up the occasion.)

 

The Yorkshire Business Market, taking place this year on Monday 30th April up at the Pavilions of Harrogate, was originally established to create an opportunity for local companies large and small to promote their businesses, make connections and learn from each other. This format has proved a success and 13 years later the Yorkshire Business Market is as popular as ever.

 

The team from A&H will be there again joining lots of other great local businesses, and we'll be sharing our love and passion for wine. We like giving visitors a good reason to visit our stand and this year is no exception - you'll have the opportunity to win something cool! We did consider the not-so-classic fairground game “Dunk the MD in a bath of wine" but we thought things could get messy!

 

Instead, we'll be inviting visitors to enter our prize draw for a beautiful gift-boxed bottle of fine Italian fizz - Ferghettina Franciacorta Milledi 2013. It looks the business and tastes divine!  

 

Click here for more information about visiting the Yorkshire Business Market. We hope to see you there.
