This is without a doubt one of our favourite events on the social calendar!!  

Every year in November we hold our annual 'big' tasting. This is an opportunity for us to open our doors (and bottles) giving you the opportunity to taste new wines, and old favourites whilst they are open!

Over the years this event has become more and more popular, with more people putting this in their social calendar and indeed, from our side, more wines on show. We have been very lucky as well in that we attract a number of winemakers and wine specialists to show and explain to those who are interested, a little more about the wines they make.  

The annual 'BIG' Christmas tasting

What's on for tasting...

This year we have a real treat in store for you, with more winemakers and negociants than ever! The number of wines open to taste can be overwhelming, so we have put together a list, see below, which allows you to start planning and researching the wines you may be interested in tasting... it would be a shame to miss out one of your soon to be favourites!

Bodegas Ontanon with Conrado Herrero

We have been excited by Conrado coming back to Bakewell all year!!! His flight is booked and his bags packed. 

We put this date in his diary back in February and we have been a bit giddy since. Conrado has been a big friend of Hattersley Wines for many years and not only is he is a great guy but his wines are pretty special too. 

Bodegas Ontanon is a 5th generation family-owned and run winery in Rioja Baja. Their vineyards sit high in the Sierra Yerga mountains and produce some of the most fantastic Riojas. 

Those of you who haven't met Conrado or tried the wines from Bodega Ontanon are in for a real treat!

Christmas wouldn't be the same without a few little French classics and it's a great time of year to treat yourself to something a little special. 

We are constantly searching to increase our own range of direct imports to bring you the best vintages, quality and value and Bordeaux is no exception. Great offers on everything from Margaux to Saint-Emilion in bottle and Magnums, come and talk to us and more importantly taste...

Wines you just don't want to miss too from Rioja and the stunning wines from Bodegas Leza Garcia, some of the best Rioja you will have tasted.

Nigel Wilkinson - The Great Master Sommelier

We are impressed we have managed to tie this jet setter down for a tasting! Having known Nigel for over 20 years it has been incredible to see his career flourish. He is now one of the top Master Sommeliers in the country spending his time training other Master Sommeliers and tasting wines all over the world. 

Nige is an all round top guy, good friend and a 'try hard' cricketer  - what he doesn't know about wines probably isn't worth knowing! He has chosen a fantastic range of wines which will arm you perfectly for the festive season. So enjoy his company, ask him questions and what ever you do... no welsh jokes!
