Last night Yelp Manchester’s fantastic World Of Wine month was brought to a close (at least in regards to events) with a brilliant look at Reserve Wines, a gem of a Wine & Spirit shop located in West Didsbury and the perfect spot to launch our brand new Escape The City series.
Escape The City is a new set of events coming to Yelp Manchester aimed at exploring those spots just outside the city walls that deserve just as much attention as the big boys of King Street, Deansgate and Spinningfields. In the first of that series, Reserve Wines played host to yelpers new and old and welcomed them in to explore a selection of favourites from their vast array of wines on offer.
The night started with a welcome glass of fizz and a brief intro from manager Nic Rezzouk who was to play the role of tour guide on our exploration of all things grape.
It was then on to the white wines and a talk through 2 different styles whilst a choice of cheeses were passed around to compliment each (Nic told us they go well together – we believe him). After the whites had gone it was time for a quick interlude for our Yelpers to grab some more nibbles before settling down for the red course where 3 more fantastic wines followed. Nic was a fantastic guide and ensured all our yelpers left both merry and filled to the brim with wino know-how.
The night ended with the accumulation of our photo competition in which Chrissy P won a great bottle of white as picked by Nic for her inventive ‘Drinking Like an Animal’ entry.
20 happy yelpers, 6 brilliant wines, 1 fantastic local business – a memorable night for all.
