May / June
A Unique Amarone Tasting
Amaroni Espressioni is the result of the first ever project to vinify separate grapes from five Classico valleys of Valpolicella showing the unique expression of each individual terroir.
We have a beautiful presentation case of five wines from the 2005 vintage, priced at £425 in our shop. I'm sure you'll agree this would make a terrific gift (for yourself or others!), but is beyond the reach of many of us, although some lucky customers have added the case to their collection!
For the rest of us, it seemed such a shame that we miss out, so I have decided to hold two tastings, both with very limited availability, to enable us to share the experience. Tickets are very limited at £60 per person, to include fizzy on arrival, six Amarones (one to be used as a "benchmark" and the five Espressioni, plus a two course dinner to complement the wines.
Friday 10th May, 7pm for 7.30pm at the Feildens Arms in Mellor Brook – SOLD OUT
Friday 14th June, 7pm for 7.30pm at the Feildens Arms in Mellor Brook - SOLD OUT
New Dates in July will be released soon – if you are interested please contact Barrica to join the waiting list.
I'm aware this is one of our highest priced tastings at Barrica, but believe me, it WILL be worth it!

EVA Awards 2013
Jane Cuthbertson of Barrica Wines was invited to the launch of The Enterprise Vision Awards (EVA) in May. These celebrate the achievement of business women in The North West. If you would like to nominate Jane (or any other inspiring women) for an award at this year’s ceremony, please follow this link here.
We are, and have been for sometime, avid fans of the wine tasting evenings that Jane has organised. They are an event not to be missed and her guest speakers - wine producers - from all over the world, impart a wonderful insight into the wines they produce.
Jane's knowledge and advice when choosing wines is second to none and the choice is quite remarkable.
Ever felt intimidated when walking into a wine shop and haven't a clue what to ask for. We've probably all been there if we're honest. Well, help is at hand. I can think of no better way of overcoming those fears than by attending one of Barrica Wine's foundation courses. Co-hosts Kevin and Jane really do have a winning formula that makes these events not only extremely interesting and informative, but superbly informal and friendly. What really did it for me was the coming together of like-minded people in such a relaxed atmosphere where I never once felt out of place. It has boosted my confidence no end. An absolute must for both wannabee wine enthusiasts, or for those who just want a better appreciation of the intriguing world of wine.
After attending the Barrica Wine Foundation courses, I realised there was so much more to wine than I had ever imagined. What next, I heard myself saying. No way was I going to leave it at that. Armed with this newly acquired passion, I again turned to Barrica Wines who introduced me to the concept of 'Country Days', the idea being to experience the different regions and countries of the world. What a revelation ! It all started in Italy (well, the wines did anyway ! ! !) where we were introduced to a fantastic range of grape varieties, several of which I had no idea existed, let alone tasted. Some absolutely stunning wines, many of which now taking pride of place in my cellar (thats a pseudonym for ' my garage' by the way). Since Italy, we have travelled afar to Argentina and Portugal to name but a few. A journey that has already provided some truly memorable moments. Simply amazing.
