Read more about them here, or check out the following video, introduced by one of the wine trade’s finest moustaches, OWC’s Theo Sloot:-

    Theo Sloot – who used to play drums in Tony Blair’s band. True story.

    Bet you’re a wow at pub quizzes… Just getting some wines ready for a tasting tonight which includes 1988 Lehmann Vintage Port – classic summer wine.

    I recall being quite pleasantly surprised by the unexpected quality of the wines from Williamsburg Winery.

    I had associated that part of Virginia with colonial times not wine but on a business trip recently I was quite happy to have my perceptions changed.

    Virginia would make a great tourist destination for the British with all the history, culture, scenery etc etc.

    Shame everyone goes to Disney………(and I can’t imagine any good wine from Florida)
