...I had to taste wines to choose an assortment for the Creel and its Blue Lobster Bar. This was last Friday (so I'm sober now 😀).
The aim was too choose a few very special Italian wines from a truly special importer who brings to the UK wines made by small, traditional winemakers all over Italy. The tasting did not actually help much – too many of the wines were seriously special and totally delicious!!! I would have liked to stock them all! However, this one will definitely be on my list
But the tasting did at least help confirm who will supply the Creel's wines:
The Italian wines will come from
Ethical Edibles from whom I got the wines above
French and New World wines will come from Orkney's own top wine merchant (who joined me for the tasting above):
Kirkness & Gorie
and a Georgian wine or two will come from
The Georgian Wine Society
Some wonderful food pairings await.
I like to take photos and am fond of clichés - so I'll say I find them to be worth a thousand words.
