Ahoy Hot Bottlers!

The silly season is almost upon us and Olly will be popping the corks at various events over the next few weeks to lift our spirits and get us all in the festive mood.

Come along and join in!

Ideal Home Show Christmas 2019

Olly will be at the show at London's Olympia on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st November to share his top tips for Christmas with some fabulous festive tastings and his ‘12 Wines of Christmas‘ which he will be giving away! Plus ‘An Evening with Olly Smith‘ after work on Thursday.

A huge thanks goes to Majestic for providing all the wines.

Three Wine Men - Cracking Christmas Tasting, London

Hot off the heels of the sizzling Cambridge tasting last Saturday, Olly, Oz & Tim will be striding into London for two days of sipping splendidly at the RHS Lindley Halls in Victoria. Join them on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd November for top tastings with over 100 wines and boutique gins.

And if you can't make it, never fear! you'll find them in Manchester on Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th December for their final tasting of 2019!

Padstow Christmas Festival

Olly and Paul Ainsworth are teaming up once again at Padstow Christmas Festival on Friday 6th December  - we can guarantee lots of laughs and some stunning food and drink at this very festive demo. More info here.

Saturday Kitchen, BBC1

If you can't join him in the flesh, Olly will be on wine duty live in the studio tomorrow (BBC1, 10am) and in the run up to Christmas. Last week's episode really was a treat with the legend that is Sir Trevor McDonald as special guest. If you missed it, you can catch up here.

For your fill of recommendations for Christmas wines, keep an eye on Olly's weekly column in the Mail on Sunday's EVENT Magazine, and especially on Sunday 24th November for something a bit special!

If you can't wait to get cracking, Olly has chosen some treats from Majestic to see you through:


Bouvet Ladubay Saumur NV (12.5%) £9.99 mix six
Great value, lovely festive fizz to pour with your smoked salmon.  Imagine a crunchy apple exploding in shards of sparkling splendour!

Austrian Hills Grüner Veltliner 2018 (12.5%) £9.99 mix six
Peachy and pristine as skiing down a frozen tangerine segment with lift off into a lemony cloud of frosted delight.

Matsu El Picaro, Toro, 2018 (14.5%) £8.99 mix six (Back online in a jiffy and available in store now). All the power of a mighty mulberry conjuring its spicy spell across your palate. Sensational Spanish quality and value to warm you to the core. 

And finally, if you've started your Christmas shopping, don't forget that you can buy Olly's books, signed and personalised from ollysmith.com/shop as well as his glassware for that special Christmas gift.....
