Thanks to everyone who has purchased tickets for our Christmas Tasting, we have had an excellent response and as a result all tickets have now been sold.

If you enjoy a glass of sparkling wine, then you may be interested in another event happening at Holmes Mill in Clitheroe. On Sunday 25th Nov it’s the turn of The Fizz Festival, a sparkling ‘one day only’ event showcasing specialist producers and suppliers of top quality Champagne and sparkling wine from all around the world. The Whalley Wine Shop will have a table at the event showing some of the fabulous sparkling wines and accompaniments that we sell.

Beaujolais Nouveau Day. In the run up to Beaujolais Nouveau Day on the 15th of November, we are dedicating our Enomatic machine to a whole Beaujolais selection from different Cru regions. The wines include Croix Barraud Ville Vignes Chénas, Chateau Thivin “Les 7 Vignes” Cote de Brouilly, Franck Besson’s Moulin-à-vent, Chateau Grange Cochard Cote du Pye from Morgon, Du Grappin Beaujolais Villages, Vincent Lacondemine Beaujolais Blanc and Oedoria Beaujolais Blanc.

We will also have a couple of Beaujolais Nouveau available from the 15th of November. ‘Beaujolais Day’ always falls on the third Thursday of November and during the 70’s and 80’s the wine was the subject of speedy races across France and the UK to be the first to taste the new wine! No rush this year, just head into The Whalley Wine Shop at 10.30am on Thursday and have a taste for free!!
