Stuff News recently ran an article on Advintage (10 September 2012) in the Dompost outlining the John (Mac) Macpherson and the Advintage story. Read the story here…
Irrespective of the history, it doesn’t get much better than this. We have enjoyed some great November bubbly tastings in recent years and this presentation promises to top them all
Many of you know John Macpherson and Advintage. Few members have not purchased a bottle or two from this outlet.
The following is a hint of what we might taste. There could be a couple of changes but the general theme will follow this outline. The links are to the Advintage website and provide detail of the proposed wines.
- A French Vin Mousseux that Advintage are importing
- Prosecco Riondo
- Quartz Reef Central Otago
- Roederer Estate
- Champagne Lanvin
- Champagne Lombard – from the same house as Lanvin but up the food chain
- Champagne Roederer NV
- Champagne Roederer Rosé 2007
John Kemble of Kemblefield wines along with Mac will present a winemaker’s perspective in parallel to a distributor’s perspective.
A light supper will be provided so be in for this tasting, and I’m sure it’s one tasting you won’t want to miss it.
