An afternoon with Mr Merlot in Wakefield



03 May 2020 at 15:00



Why we love it

We continue our “afternoon in company” tasting series and this time we will be in the company of Mr Merlot.

Merlot is one of the most planted grapes in the world and its wines are found everywhere and everyone loves it but Merlot is a wine with hundreds of shades, from easy to drink, tasteless red wines to aged, great, amazing super wines and in our “afternoon with Mr Merlot” will taste some of them.

Travelling the length of Italy, from Sicily to Aosta Valley, we will taste 6 different wines 3 blends and 3 100% Merlot as to appreciate the terroir and its contributions to the blend. The afternoon will consist of a guided tasting of 6 Merlot wines lasting approximately 2 hours with some buffet food provided. The venue will be confirmed closed to the date but it will be in Wakefield city centre

One grape, many styles, discover the one you love! and if you can't wait, visit our wine and grape section and learn about merlot, the grape and discover the wines we stock.

Due to the current situation, the tasting has been postponed to a later date, if you have purchased your ticket you will receive an email informing you of the options available.

About the organizer of the event was founded in 2003 in response to a lack of quality Italian wine and food. Andrea as soon as he landed in the UK noticed that Italian products available in supermarkets were not the ones he was used to.

From wine to food, Andrea could not find the quality he was used to and coming from a wine making family, he decided to embark in a mission and source quality Italian wine and food.’s goal is to discover and import Italian gems from small, little known, yet dedicated, Italian wineries and food producers.

All products we import are of the highest quality and made using the best and most natural ingredients and respecting the environment, none of our product contains palm oil or preservative.

We do not import industrial or poor quality products, we believe in a healthy living and eating and drinking well is part of the Mediterranean diet.
