Free wine tasting

"Try the perfect wines for Christmas"

Dennis Kingshott from Catchpole Cellars will host a series of free wine tasting sessions throughout the weekend. Dennis will introduce an exclusive collection of wines from South Africa and walk you through the perfect selection for Christmas.

The sessions take place at the following times:


Noon - Wines from South Africa

1pm - The perfect Christmas wine collection

3pm - Wines from South Africa

4pm - The perfect Christmas wine collection


11.30am - Wines from South Africa

12.30am - The perfect Christmas wine collection

2.30pm - Wines from South Africa

3.30pm - The perfect Christmas wine collection

Each session will last around 40 minutes and is limited to 40 people each. They are free and it is first come first served so please get there early if you want to get a seat and take part.

From South Africa, Dennis and his team will introduce you to four wines from the Conradie Penhill estate, an artisanal winery based at the foothills of the famous Langeberg Mountains in the Nuy Valley, situated between Worcester and Robertson in the Cape Winelands.

From the Christmas selection, there's a French sparkling called Veuve de Lalande, which rivals Champagne but at £16.50 a bottle, is half the price, a white Bordeaux from Chateau Haut Paugnan, an Italian red from Brindisi that is perfect for turkey and goose and a German chocolate and truffle liqueur that Dennis describes as an "extravagant and beautiful way to finish a Christmas meal".

The wine tasting sessions will take place in the small pavillion beside the scoreboard. Look out for 'Wine Tastings' signs.
