Great value takes on a whole new meaning when tasting Mediterranean reds, which offer everything in spades… The best of these wines (which are the only ones we’ll be tasting) are smooth, soft and full bodied with their fruit flavours dialled up to high volume and they cruise in with budget prices that make us all do a double take.

This tasting is part of Regional Wines & Spirits new series of instore tastings (free) which I am hosting for this iconic wine store (it’s where wine began to make sense for me, over 20 years ago now – ouch).

So come along and discover the best under $15 and the best under $20 Med’ Reds at Regional on Saturday 4 June at 12 noon. You’ll be able to enjoy the wines, and learn more about how to find the best of the bunch yourself by learning what to look for on the labels.

I’ll be hosting this casual instore tasting and if our last few instore sessions have been anything to go by, it’s sure to prove popular, not least because we will open a wide range of wines from southern France to Spain and across to Italia… I’m looking forward to it.
