Monday 14 October: Domaine du Silene, Languedoc

Put simply, we LOVE this wine in Hampstead; to say we’re excited about welcoming Laurent in-store is an understatement indeed. Laurent will be bringing with him a selection of his sensational wines, and will be discussing these and answering any questions you may have about this most magical and under-appreciated part of France. If you’ve never tried what we think is the greatest wine for under £20, then this is your perfect opportunity.

 

Walk-in Tasting – Free, 6.00 to 8.00pm

This is an opportunity to meet the man and taste the wines in an informal setting that is open to all.

 

After-hours Masterclass – £18 (incl. a bottle of Dom. Du Silene), 8.10 to 9.00pm

We are delighted that Laurent Sauvage will be hosting a masterclass for 20 lucky customers of Jeroboams Hampstead.

If you would like to come for the After-hours Masterclass, tickets are £18 which includes a bottle of their top wine, Domaine Du Silene (RRP £19.95).

Just email or call (020 7435 6845) asap to secure a spot.

 


 

Saturday 19 October:  Supping some Sherry (Free)

Do you think sherry is something you find at the back of your drinks cupboard – about from one Christmas to the next?  Think again!  As part of this year’s ‘Giant Sherry Festival’, we shall have some bottles open for you to try.  Go on, you might like it, heck, we think you’ll LOVE it!

Pop in store anytime between 1pm and 4pm to sample some super-sherry.

 


Wednesday 23 October: Dog Point

We will be joined in-store for a very special masterclass from one of the true legends of the New Zealand wine industry, Dog Point’s Ivan Sutherland.  Ivan and his business partner, James Healy, were instrumental in growing Cloudy Bay into the household name it is today.

Ivan and his wife Margaret were among the founding pioneers of the New Zealand wine scene, they planted the vines that would later become Dog Point Vineyard.  This all back in 1979, at a time when you were more likely to see a cow in the fields of Marlborough than a bunch of grapes.  After many successful years at Cloudy Bay, Ivan and James released their first vintage of Dog Point in 2004 and have not looked back.  Ivan is renowned as being one of the most entertaining and down to earth people in the world of wine, and this evening will be immensely enjoyable both for the personalities and for their incredible wines.

 

Walk-in Tasting – Free, 6.00 to 8.00pm

We will have a selection of Dog Point’s wines available to taste. This part of the evening is open to all customers.

 

After-hours Masterclass – £14 (incl. a bottle of Dog Point Sauvignon), 8.10 to 9.00pm

From 8.10 to 9.00pm, Ivan will be hosting what will be a very enjoyable masterclass for 20 lucky customers of Jeroboams Hampstead.  Ivan will be introducing us to the wines of Dog Point Vineyards and will happily discuss anything that you throw at him.

If you would like to come for the After-hours masterclass, tickets are £14 which includes a bottle of their 2012 Dog Point Sauvignon (RRP £17.20).

Just email or call (020 7435 6845) asap to secure a spot.

 


Monday 28 October: Il Casalone

We will be welcoming Angelo Cerciello of Fattoria Il Casalone in store to host a tasting of the wines from this family owned estate. Based in the heart of the coastal area of Maremma in Tuscany, Fattoria Il Casalone is a special wine estate making wines of wonderful character. Vines have been grown on these lands since at least the early 19th Century when the vineyard ‘Colombi’ of Poggio Colombi first surfaced in records. We have long been fans of these wines, and look forward to trying the range with Angelo, and learning more about this hidden corner of Tuscany.

 

Walk-in Tasting – Free, 6.00 to 8.00pm

Pop in anytime between 6.00 & 8.00pm to meet Angelo and to try the wines of Il Casalone on an informal basis.

 

After-hours Masterclass – £9 (incl. a bottle of ‘Poggio Colombi’), 8.10 to 9.00pm

From 8.10 to 9.00pm, Angelo will be hosting a masterclass for 20 customers of Jeroboams Hampstead. He will be talking us through their delicious wines as we taste the range, and will happily answer your questions.

If you would like to come for the After-hours Masterclass, tickets are just £9 which includes a bottle of Il Casalone’s ‘Poggio Colombi’ (RRP £11.20)

Just email or call (020 7435 6845) asap to secure a spot.

 


 

These events will sell out, so book your place early to avoid disappointment. It’s going to be a jam packed fun few months with us at Jeroboams which will banish any impending blues of the changing seasons. We really look forward to welcoming you in-store soon.
