Annual Wine Fair
Fitzpatrick's Killiney Castle - Wintergarden Suite
Thursday, November 15th, 2012
6pm to 9pm
We are coming up to our 14th (!) Annual Wine Fair next week and I have to say it is a night we love putting on and a night that our customers seem to really enjoy. Apart from some local sponsorship, it is the only advertising we do all year. It is a terrific opportunity for ourselves and our customers to try both old favourites as well as new wines we have found throughout the year.
We also offer significant discounts on the night to encourage customers to get their Christmas wine in early which means we can get some good customers what they want at great value and deflect some of the rush from December.
With everyone expecting duty to go up in the budget early December, early buying could be a big factor this year.
We are changing the layout this year - instead of doing it by supplier or country, we are doing it by wine style with 8 tables in all:
Sparkling & Champagne
Light and Refreshing Whites
Round and Fruity Whites
Light and Elegant Reds
Rich and Fruity Reds
Full bodied and Powerful Reds
With about 100 wines open and some great value to be had, it will be a great night!
