Montes Alpha Tasting - September 5th

Posted 23/08/2017

After a very busy summer, and following on from our last very enjoyable Masterclass event with Kevin Judd from GREYWACKE in June, we're delighted to announce we have another very special date coming up.

This time, we are excited to announce that we will have the Export Manager for MONTES of Chile, Maria Walker Urruticoechea, with us on the evening of Tuesday 5th September to take us through a superb range of wines.

This is the chance to taste, enjoy and learn about one of South America's most famous wineries, and will include tasting some of the stars from both the MONTES CLASSIC and the ALPHA ranges, as well as one of Chile's real icon reds, PURPLE ANGEL. This very special evening kicks off at the usual time of 7pm at our warehouse shop, with tickets costing only £15 person. Please note, we expect this to be a very popular event and spaces are very limited due the seated Masterclass format. Please therefore book early to avoid disappointment, and this can be done by calling us on 01382 641111, by email on info@aitkenwines.com or by popping into the shop any time.

We hope to see you there

World Gin Day 2017!

Posted 09/06/2017

Hello folks!!

As some of you already may know, Saturday 10th June is World Gin Day!! For those of you who don't - World Gin Day is a day dedicated to celebrating gin – with a Sunday afterwards to recover!!

There are usually loads of events held at bars, pubs and other venues as well as loads of gin promotions, so keep an eye out for these!! We'll be offering tastings of some of our most popular gins all day on Saturday, so make sure you get down to our warehouse store early to get some!!

People from all over the world can also get involved on social media with the #WorldGinDay hashtag. If you buy a gin from us, make sure to tag us on Facebook or Instagram

So happy Gin Day when it comes!! (And remember, if you're not a gin fan there's always time for good wine here!!)

Jumilla wines!!

Posted 05/06/2017

We've had a bit of a switch up here at Aitkens. As many ofyou know, our Broughty Ferry Shop is now officially closed. However, it's not all bad news!! We nowhave more time to concentrate on buying in the most interesting and best value wines we can! Kicking off with these three from Jumilla;

 

Time waits for no one

Time Waits for no one!

Rolling Stones fan?? Or just a lover of good red wine?? This Spanish Monastrell has got good acidity, bold tannins, and rich fruit and herbal notes. This wine encourages us to live every moment, cherish the little time we have as is "cannot be recovered"... so grab a bottle now for the weekend!!

3015

3015

3015 Monastrell is a vibrant eco-wine. Spending 2 months in oak barrels, the tannins are soft and allow floral flavours and black fruits to come through. From the makers - "3015 evokes a time where nature and live beings give us shelter in a world without resources, destroyed by ourselves. This organic wine delights us with its taste, but also encourages us to reflect about the fragility of nature that we must cherish." We have many eco- and bio- wines in store, so if this is an important issue for you when buying wine, please ask us for assistance!

Yeya

Yeya

Yeya is a perfect blend of voluptuous chardonnay and sweet muscat, which pair wonderfully with white fish or seafood. The grapes for this wine are actually harvested at night, when the grapes have soaked up as much of the sun as possible, therefore creating an intense aroma with an elegant finish on the palate.

 

Come on in to our warehouse shop to see everythign we have on offer!

Two masterclasses available with industry icons!!

Posted 10/04/2017

Just like buses, we haven't had a BIG masterclass tasting at the warehouse for quite some time, and we now have 2 very special dates in the diary, with 2 very big names in the wine industry...

1. Thursday 27th April - WINES OF SOUTH AFRICA with PAUL BOUTINOT

Some of you will already know the name Paul Boutinot who set up and ran one of the UK's biggest and best wine importers, BOUTINOT in 1980. He subsequently sold this UK business in 2013, having already purchased and set up one of the most impressive biodynamic wineries in South Africa overlooking False Bay in the Cape called WATERKLOOF. The wines already have quite a following at Aitken's, from the outstanding value for money FALSE BAY range to the exceptional CIRCUMSTANCE and CIRCLE OF LIFE wines, which illustrate the best that South Africa currently has to offer.

2. Thursday 22nd June - GREYWACKE WINES, NEW ZEALAND with KEVIN JUDD

Again, some of you might know Kevin as being the guy that pretty much put Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc on the world map, having been the original winemaker at Cloudy Bay for 25 years. This is now the third time Kevin has visited us in Dundee (he must like it here!!) and we will be showcasing his own outstanding range of GREYWACKE wines.

Both of these 'not to be missed' Masterclass events have strictly limited availability, with tickets at only £15 per person and both kicking off from 7pm.

Bookings can be made any of the usual ways; by email on info@aitkenwines.com , by phone on 01382 641111 or by popping into either of our shops.

We look forward to seeing you again soon
