Wow - there is an article today by James Halliday about a wine auction to be held in order to raise funds for the Len Evans Foundation. If i had the money I'd go and bid as there some fantastic wines on offer, as well as an amazing dinner featuring a series of Domaine de la Romanee Conti La Tache, all donated by the redoubtable Mr Halliday. He's a great raconteur and that would be some evening. Droool!
Just a brief post to say that the Celtic Whiskey Shop have started importing the Dveri Pax range of wines as a result of the excellent tasting hosted by Cabot & Co. a few months ago. Their Pinot Gris, which I retatsed a week or so ago, is yummy but I'm not sure which wines are being brought in.

On Tuesday 5th February a tasting of Slovenian wines was hosted in Dublin by Liam and Sinead Cabot, and a very good tasting it was too. This is not the first time that such a tasting has been held here but it is a brave step for a small importer to take and I commend Liam and Sinead for doing this, especially in these tough times. Most of the wines shown would retail around €15 so these are in the top 5% or less of all retail wine sales in Ireland! However, for those adventurous souls willing to experiment there are great rewards ahead.
