As it’s a Monday, it’s time for my regular blog post – an article entitled“An Interview with…”. This may be a fellow sommelier, a chef, restaurateur, winemaker, blogger or person from within the wine and hospitality industry. It will enable you to catch a glimpse from ‘behind the scenes’ into someone’s life, to listen to what they have to say and to start off your week positively by learning something new. In addition, either this will be in the form of a blog article or communicated via video. Rest assured dear readers, you are in for a mouth-watering treat, as I have some amazingly rich content and interaction lined up for you. Remember, the Roving Sommelier is the facilitator of liquid enjoyment.
Well now my friends, followers and readers, again I have something of interest for you this week. During late 2011, I attended a wine tasting in London, which was hosted at Bistro du Vin in Soho. A line up of exclusive boutique wines from the Specialist Winegrowers of New Zealand portfolio were being presented by Steve Farquharson of Wooing Tree Vineyard in Central Otago. Afterwards, I had a quick ‘catch up’ chat with Steve and made a short roving sommelier video interview.
Apart from the estate’s excellent Pinot Noirs, my favourite wine produced at Wooing Tree is ”Blondie” – a white wine made from Pinot Noir.
Wooing Tree wines are available in the UK via Seckford Wines. Please contact them for further details.
The roving sommelier is the facilitator of liquid enjoyment and by sharing my knowledge, passion and experiences, I will be your friendly tour guide on this gastronomic jaunt.
A portion of my book sales will be donated towards the New Zealand Earthquake Appeal Fund.
I’m looking forward to hearing about your own food and wine stories and comments.
