With Ghana, South Korea, England and Uruguay among the qualifiers due to play this weekend, my plan to do amazing World Cup tastings is falling down around me.
Italy, the current World Champions, were turfed out of the World Cup unceremoniously by Slovakia this afternoon, a result which will result in much wailing and gnashing of teeth on the streets of Rome, Milan etc tonight.
To cheer them up in our own little way, we will be doing 10% off all Italian wines this weekend, lots of nice ones on tasting.
To those of you eating out, Beaufield Mews are doing the same thing except on French wine. Their list is already good value, so this is worth seeking out. And yes, I am blatantly plagiarising their idea!!
