Last chance to snap up tickets for Winter Wine Festival at Sandon Hall – 20th October

Wine – and gin – lovers looking for a fun and educational way to spend their Saturday evening should pick up a ticket for Wolseley Wine Loft’s Winter Wine Festival, which takes place this Saturday, 20th October at stately Sandon Hall.

The team from ‘the loft’ and wine experts from various suppliers will showcase almost 100 different wines, spirits and beers in the hall’s elegant reception rooms. With red, white, rosé and sparkling wines on taste from New and Old World producers there really will be something for everyone; whilst the relaxed, informal atmosphere will make it a fun evening for those with and in-depth knowledge of wines and beginners alike.

Alongside wines to sample there will be a good selection of gins on taste and even some local beers courtesy of Stone-based brewer, Lymestone Brewery.

Special discounts will be offered on orders placed on the night; making this the perfect opportunity to select your favourite wines and stock up for gifts and entertaining over the Christmas period. Wolseley Wine Loft proprietor, Brenda Rhodes, says:
