Wine Gang News August 2014
August Issue Now Published
Batting off with the big boys, we've reports from Sainsbury's, Tesco, The Co-operative and Waitrose. We move on to three interesting wine chains including Jeroboams and Wine Rack, but also Wine Rack's sister operation Bargain Booze - the first time we have featured what is now Britain's biggest off-licence chain. We also look at a new mixed case offering on Austrian wines from The Wine Society, and some of the top choices from specialist importer Liberty Wines. Two other things of note this month: as promised we have also started to archive the mid-month wines from the previous month (so July's mid-month wines appear in this report) and a note to check out our coverage of rosé wines: they are spread throughout this month's reports, but there are 20 of them, ranging from a disappointing 82-point wine to an unexpected 94-point stunner.
Monthly News Title
September 1st is a date for your diary: that's when tickets officially go on sale for our extraordinary Christmas Wine Fairs in London, Bath and Edinburgh in November. We'll have a special opening offer too. The best way to stay informed is via our dedicated Wine Fairs web site at wineganglive.com, but we are super-excited by our masterclass programme at all three venues where you can attend tutored tastings including Penfolds Grange, Pol Roger Champagne, Chateau Pichon-Longueville of Bordeaux and the most iconic wines of Tuscany and Piedmont.
Our next monthly report will be published around the 1st of September, but of course our mid-month survival kit of latest wine recommendations will be with members around August 15th. Sign up here to receive all that, and more!
