100 Best Australian Wines Roadshow – Noel Young, 31st March 2011

The next date on my 100 Best Roadshow is at the world famous, eponymous, wine merchant’s Noel Young, in Cambridge.  Noel is a complete and utter legend in the world of wine and he is already a convert to the wonders of fine Aussie wine, so it will be a joy to open a load of stellar bottles with him on Thursday evening.  If you would like to come along, please give Noel a buzz on tel. 01223 844744.  The tickets are priced at £15 per head (which is a very fair shout indeed!).  I very much look forward to a wild night with you all.  See below for more details and the huge list of wines!
