“Summer Lights” early summer wine tasting : Bank Holiday Monday 28 May – 13:00 – 17:00
Booking is essential for our latest wonderful wine tasting. Tickets are £15 per person or £25 for two. As well as our usual discounts, one ticket will be refunded for each case of 12 ordered. Cases can be mixed or unmixed. Buy a case of 12 before the event and we’ll give you a complimentary ticket. (Tickets are non-transferable).
It’s a self-service event and the price includes our usual excellent buffet, as well as live music. Weather permitting, there will be outdoor seating.
Customers ask me all the time for wines which stay within 12.5% and I think summer is the perfect time for this category. There are plenty out there but the best are frequently on the esoteric end of the spectrum so you need to know where to look. These are bottles you can sling in the ice bucket and enjoy with lunch or dinner al fresco – and still be able to trim the herbaceous borders afterwards*. The list throws up a fascinating cross-section of our wines, from the best of East Sussex, to Champagne, to some fascinating Italian reds. I hope you enjoy tasting them as much as I have enjoyed their gathering together.
[*Cuculo does not advocate the trimming of herbaceous borders whilst under the influence of alcohol.]
Tickets are not available online so please contact us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 01435 862596 or come in-store.
