Organic wine tasting hits Glasgow!
Soil Association Scotland - 23 September 2011
The newly established wine merchants Quel Vin in Glasgow have been busy with organic wine tastings every weekend this September, resulting in a lot of happy customers leaving with organic goodies.
Big sellers include Giol Prosecco, Mont Albano Pinot Grigio/Pinot Bianco, Wild Thing Sauvignon Blanc and rose (great price - over a fiver under a tenner), Jean Bousquet Malbec . As well as the Milton Chenin and Riesling which were, according to Quel Vin, “a magnificent discovery”. Also, “Lovely Linda Ward from Vintage Roots came and tasted with us... she really does fire up the enthusiasm - and I think tasting the wines helps too, of course”.
Final tasting on 30th September!
