Our recent Spring Wine Tasting caused quite a stir last month.  Reason?  Well to keep things real and relevant, we decided to contrast the characters of Donald Trump and Meryl Streep with the characters of 22 of our exhibited wines.  We all know that Mr T likes to throw his weight around, enjoys being ‘au contraire’ and speaks his mind with openness and force.  So why not take those traits and apply them to a range of our equally outspoken big wines?  Which is exactly what we did.  As for Meryl, when it comes to her acting abilities, she’s more of a chameleon – intriguing, interesting and assured.  So again, we applied these values to the other half of our more classic wine range.
