Ahoy Hot Bottlers! 

To celebate their 50th anniversary, the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) is launching the 1st ever global Wine Education Week 9-15th September 2019. 

The week long campaign kicks off this September with an attempt to break the Guinness World Records title for the largest ever recorded sommelierie lesson, which currently stands at 271 people.

We're thrilled to announce that Olly will be co-hosting the super fun food and wine pairing event with sommelier Virgilio Gennaro (Wine Director at Giorgio Locatelli Consultancy).

There'll be a drinks reception from 6-7pm followed by a guided tasting of four wines matched with food.

You’ll learn how the key flavour components in food affect how you taste a wine and at the end of the session you'll have the skills to create masterful food and wine pairings of your own. Just like the professionals do!

Join Olly on Monday 9th September at the Kia Oval, London SE1.

Tickets are on sale now. Click here to purchase & for more info.

This event is sponsored by The Wine Society so this week's HOT BOTTLE is Olly's current favourite £8.95 red

Bin #001 Bobal 2017 (14%) £8.95 The Wine Society

Olly says: "Pierre Mansour has excelled himself with this Spanish star. Get in quick - strictly limited run available from The Wine Society exclusively.

Elegance and oomph, bags of fragrant fruit, structure and persistent fine tannin with a lift-off finish of scrumptious freshness. It’s a gift that keeps on giving and I warmly recommend ordering a deep pool of bottles to splash around in. I absolutely adored tasting it."


We'd like to take the opportunity here to say a big thanks to Corney & Barrow for generously providing the wines at next week's Dine & Disco bash. Over the years, Chris Evans' Dine & Disco has raised more than £2 million for Children in Need and we're honoured that Olly is taking part once again!
