We are delighted to be hosting Louis Boutinot here, all the way from South Africa, to take us through the False Bay range, a collection of fantastic wines that have formed a core part of our range for many years. Like us, False Bay are an independent company owned by Waterkloof founder Paul Boutinot. False Bay Vineyards aims to make ‘real’ wine affordable. These are sustainable certified wines bottled in South Africa and naturally crafted from mature and often old vineyards that, crucially, are natural in balance. This means that, unusually at the price, the grapes from these coastal gems can be transformed into wine with wild yeast and an absolute minimum of intervention. False Bay Vineyards is proud to be a WWF (World Wildlife Fund) Biodiversity Champion and certified by WIETA (Wine and Agricultural Ethical Trade Association). A fantastic tasting and there may even be a special guest appearance from a certain ex Hennings Chichester shop Manager!
Is there a more joyous time to the year? Light evenings, a bit of sunshine and the prospect of a few Bank Holidays to look forward to! Did you know that we have a national celebration for our wine industry too? Make sure you’re well stocked for English Wine Week at the end of May into June and don’t forget we’ve got lots of different English wines available in our shops and on our website. We’ve also included the odd parcel or two of ‘once they’re gone they’re gone’ wines like the Sablet and Boroli Barolo. There are some other brilliant wines in here as well as details of three upcoming tutored tastings so if you’re keen to experience the stories behind wine, why not book a ticket or two? Cheers!

It’s been a while since we’ve hosted an evening of Malt Whisky. And as Colin recently spent a week visiting all the distilleries on Islay he can’t wait to introduce you to the delights of this stunning island. We are delighted to welcome George Wills from the Kilchoman distillery on Islay to guide us through their range. Definitely new kids on the block, having just passed their tenth birthday, they are making waves in the industry with a stunning range of whiskies. From the signature Machir Bay, 100% Islay Malt, Cask Strength and different cask expressions it should be a great night. We are limited to 24 spaces so please call Colin at our Pulborough shop to secure your ticket.
