NEW CONCEPT 2009 - The Wine Panel

with David Dennison
at The Wine Vault Wine Shop , Waterford
Thursday 29th January 7.30 pm

Featuring Italian Organic Wines The San Polino Selection from Montalcino, Tuscany
Never seen before in Ireland & we are looking forward to tasting them with you
You are the WINE PANEL; we would like to hear what YOU think …
Can you taste all the natural passion and uniqueness of these wines?

The history of San Polino goes back at least 1,000 years. For much of its life San Polino and its original 40 hectares would have had to support an extended family of 15 to 20 people, as well as handing over half of its produce of grain, olives, sheep and wine to the local landlords. Katia Fabro & her husband Luigi bought the house with 5 hectares of land and 400 “olivastra” olive trees in 1992. They immediately planted a small vineyard of Sangiovese. The farm was certified organic in 1994. San Polino now produces 10,000/12,000 bottles of wine annually and is once again working as a living, thriving farm, hopefully with as much future as it has history.

We have been fortunate to seek out these wines and make contact with the wine makers
Katia Fabro & her husband, who have sent us a selection of wines for us to sample …
It is €30 to attend our Wine Panel and all monies will be donated to

Turn the Downturn UP

The economic downturn has changed our outlook towards many things in particular on how we spend our money. For some of us, life is the same – same job, same assets, same person – but with the media hype that is surrounding the recession, we can’t help ourselves being a little wiser when it comes to shelling out hard earned euro.

There seems to be a trend beginning when it comes to shopping at ‘Small Local Businesses’. People are supporting the small businesses to avoid letting them become victims of the times. It doesn’t seem to be a problem to spend that little bit extra in order to get better quality products, often homemade or handcrafted, with the added benefit of supporting local. The same can be said for the consumer attitude towards wine. To appreciate a good bottle of wine less frequently as a treat whilst supporting small local wine merchants will be the way forward for many wine drinkers. A fine Bordeaux or New Zealand Pinot Noir enjoyed with a friend is set to be the preferred alternative to too many glasses of inferior quality cheaper wine that always seems to disappoint.

Look out for Wine Sales and Bargain Bin End wines at your local neighbourhood Wine Merchant shops. Now is the time to experiment with new wines or stock up on you special favourites for every occasion.
March Madness 3 Day Wine Sale at The Wine Vault Wine Shop, High Street, Waterford. Starts 5th March. Visit www.dennisonwines.com for more details.
