What’s a special occasion without a glass of bubbles? Synonymous with celebration, sparkling wines have an air of fun and decadence about them – although, in fact, they’re widely said to be the most technically complex wines to produce because of the need to control two fermentation processes.
The most famous sparkling wine is, of course, Champagne – a drink with an unmistakable air of luxury about it. Sparkling wine doesn’t have to be expensive though, and the Vineking collection of fizz includes something for all budgets, whether you’re just looking to bring a bit of sparkle to your evening with a well-chosen cava or prosecco or splashing out for a really special celebration.
Of course, we’re great wine fans at the Vineking – but some occasions just call for a beer. For those times, we’ve brought together a range of the very best European beers, which you can buy as single bottles or combine to create your own choice of mixed case.
My review is limited to this wine's appearance: it's got a lovely label. I haven't drunk any yet!
Recommended by Hamish as supplies of the Sottano were low. An excellent, robust, full bodied Malbec. Pleasant drinking either on it's own or with your food of choice. Not tried before but would definitely purchase again, especially during the 20% discount promotion! Cheers
Delightful wine, easy drinking, well priced. The adjective that came to mind on first taste was 'friendly' - it's exactly how a sparkling rose should taste - happy, fruity, refreshing. Perfect for a Friday night pick me up in front of a rom com, or with friends in the garden.
I’ve been drinking Les Coteaux for at least 13 years. My only issue is the number of people I’ve told to buy it so when it’s in stock it goes very quickly. For the price I don’t think there’s a better Côte du Rhone out there.
Batts Hill Gin and Coffee Liquor is absolutely exceptional and stands head and shoulders above the rest! Supporting local businesses is a priority for us, and Batts Hill has won our hearts with their outstanding product and prompt "next-day" delivery service, earning a permanent spot on our weekly shopping list.
Without a doubt, the coffee liquor is our absolute favorite – it's a true delight! Delano's friendly and swift service adds an extra layer of satisfaction to our experience. We can't recommend Batts Hill enough; it's a true gem in the world of spirits and liquors. 🍸☕🌟
Purchased this wine as one of the Vineking's excellent weekly offers and it did not disappoint. Will order again in the future.
A very entertaining tasting. Very good wines, excellent nibbles, nice company, very knowledgeable presentation.
I really enjoy these wine tasting evenings... Frank's enthusiasm is infectious, the guest (Seb) was very knowledgeable & I like that you meet new people as seating in tables of 6 (usually) means you might meet 4 new wine buffs. The only grouse I have is the wine itself... in 2 events I've attended, I sampled c 25 wines & only 2 of which I've liked (same with my guests). Is the format just not conducive to having the wines at their best... maybe less wines being sampled per evening, clean glasses per tasting etc might help... & less rushed
I enjoyed all the wines on offer at the tasting which I would describe as above average and showing S.A. is still a location for nice wines at a decent price. The dried meats and especially the cheeses on offer were really good and generous, making a very pleasant evening.
I visited the vineyard 6 months ago and sampled these beauties …. so when the Vineking’s email popped into my inbox there was a broad smile on my face
I am always a wee bit wary of picking up 6 x bottles of any wine, with Chardonnay being a particular risky option - you just never know how the winemaker has influenced what is in the bottle. However the Domaine Guillaman offering is a really nice drinkable wine, which my wife and I both enjoyed. Well done Eric & The Team for the recommendation.
V much looking forward to an evening with the usual high standards we have come to expect from this Reigate institution.
Really enjoyed this evening. Erik gave an extremely informative presentation about the different types of fizz and took the time to answer all of our questions. It was nice to be seated with other people and this made the evening feel intimate and social. We also appreciated the platters of bread, olives, cheese and charcuterie. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would certainly recommend it! Thank you Erik and team!
I chanced across the 2017 a couple of years back and thought it was a cut above most at what was £9 at the time.
I didn’t see any for intervening years but thought the 2020 would be worth trying-and it was!
Incredibly smooth, fresh, full of forest fruits and a lingering taste that encourages you to finish the bottle.
I will definitely buy more.
