Ever wondered what Christmas with a well-travelled wine expert looks like? Look no further as this festive season we're transporting members to our buyers' homes for a slice of frivolity and cheer.
In December, our buyers will partner up to quiz each other on how they usually like to spend this time of year; their curious family traditions; and (of course) favourite wines. This week sees us transported into the homes of Jo Locke MW (Buyer for Alsace, Loire, South Africa and Portugal) and Freddy Bulmer (Buyer for Australia, New Zealand, Austria and Eastern Europe)
We'll be exploring all sorts of Christmas chatter ranging from helpful wine-related tips to family stories of Christmases past as well as some favourite food and wine combinations.
What's more, there will be chance to ask the buyers questions using the Chat button. So, if you're itching to ask Sarah Knowles MW which Champagnes are best for smoked salmon on Christmas morning, or what Jo Locke MW puts in her vin chaud – now's your chance!
With uncertainty over many Christmas plans, we hope you will take this chance to pour a glass and come together with fellow members.
You don't need any specific wines to enjoy this evening, just a curiosity to indulge in a little light relief with fellow members – although a full glass is always encouraged.
