By sarahhowe, also posted in News on

Adnams Wine ClubThe summer is all about al fresco dining and enjoying a glass of wine in the sunshine. Join The Adnams Wine Club and our Wine Buyer, Alastair Marshall, will serve you up an enticing range of wines perfect for the season and delivered straight to your door. Sign up to our wine club here. Each quarter Alastair selects 12 bottles of wine, often from small vineyards or exciting new wine regions and well suited to the time of year. Each case comes complete with full tasting notes and food-matching suggestions included. And it's not just great wines you'll be treated to - you’ll also receive 10% off any other purchases made online, in our Adnams Stores or via mail order when you call 01502 727222. This offer now also includes 10% off stays at our Adnams Hotels!* Choose the case price that matches your budget and the mix that suits your taste (you can change this at any time once you are a member). If you’re already a subscriber, here is the introduction for June Adnams Wine Club cases by Senior Wine Buyer Alastair Marshall. Underneath you can download his tasting notes for the red and white wines included in the three different price brackets available. "What’s in a name? Often we all buy wine governed by our own particular set of prejudices, and a peculiar name can easily put one off. This quarter’s selection is not short of such peculiarities, to whit – Marvellous White (£180.00 case). If I saw this on a shop shelf I would probably avoid it muttering “I’ll be the judge of that”, but when I actually tasted it I was happy to agree! How about ‘Megaphone’ (£180.00 case) or ‘Squinzano’ (£135.00 case) or even ‘P’tit Spencer ‘(£85.00 case). All the wines soon prove themselves, and the wine growers’ sense of taste can be easily forgiven - or swallowed… Another Budget from our Chancellor has come and gone and wine came off lightly with a freeze in current duty rates. Our Pound has been performing strongly against the Euro giving us a favourable exchange rate and in general, though not exclusively, the vineyards have shown a certain amount of restraint when considering their annual price reviews. The result is a stability of price with the occasional nice surprise. Despite the hard times of recent years, it has been heart-warming to see that the number of young people still looking to leap into the great adventure of becoming a winemaker remains undiminished, and this pool of talent has maybe even grown recently. As far as we are concerned, this means a greater diversity of choice, something that we intend to mine with vigour and bring you the best that we can find. Happy tasting!"
