Come to our next Wine Tasting!

Now the quiet days of dry January are well and truly behind us, it is now time to have some fun restocking those depleted Christmas wine racks in plenty of time for Easter.

To help you with this tiresome chore we are having a couple of Open House wine tastings in March. Regular customers will tell you that it is a very enjoyable experience tasting our wines which we always sell at a fair price. So if you happen to be in the South Devon area do come and see us. We will be tasting a varied selection of whites, and reds suitable for pairing with the inevitable roasted Spring lamb.

Saturday 5th & Saturday 12th March. Tasting from 11.30 – 2.00pm.




Learning more about wine


We hope you had a good festive break with plenty time to enjoy a bottle of wine – one of life’s great pleasures!

I suppose the best way to judge a business is to listen to what your customers have to say. During  November and December, the busiest time of year for us, we welcomed over a hundred people to the cellar and the feedback we received was hugely positive. The overriding consensus was that choosing wine from Michael Sutton’s Cellar is a fun experience. Our ethos is that wine is fun and we aim to be informal and yet informative.

It is very encouraging  to hear just how enthusiastic people are to learn more about wine. With that in mind we have been discussing with our trade partners and advisors about hosting educational evenings at MSC. We will finalise the details in the next few weeks but in the meantime if you would like to be involved please let us know.

It was also great to learn that in our local area there are some thriving wine clubs. We have already teamed up with our first club to host a tasting which should be a great evening. Of course you don’t have to be part of a club to come to such an event, we would be happy to host a group of friends or colleagues who would enjoy a relaxed tasting, just drop us a line via the contact page.

Happy New Year!

Last Weekend’s Wine Tasting

Thank you very much to everyone who came to our Wine Tasting Event at Riversbridge this weekend, bravely battling against the elements. On both the days our cellar was full of festive chatter and lively discussion with new friends made and old friends reunited. Our Master of Wine was kept busy with your questions and queries about how long to store wine and when treasured bottles should be at their best.

Our decision to provide Tapas to accompany the wines was well-received and something we shall be repeating at our next gathering. Quite a few of you expressed an interest in coming to a relaxed yet educational evening when we would gather in the barn above the cellar to learn about a particular wine area and sample some of it’s wines. We will be issuing further details in due course.

Many thanks again to all who visited us and we shall look forward to drinking with you again soon! Merry Christmas!
