January Newsletter 


Dear Cellar Club Members, 

Thank you for your support in 2014. 

Have a great 2015.  

I know it might be ancient history now but I hope you enjoyed some excellent feasting over Christmas and New Year with plenty of good food, good wine and entertaining company, although for some, the third component is the one they had the least control over. 

I for one had an excellent Festive period with friends and family including a few days away inNorfolk. 

As you battle the January blues the healthy way forward we believe is a holistic approach so that we can try to look after ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually.

Therefore increase the exercise, eat healthily and heartily, seek out stimulating experiences, do something worthy regularly, factor in time for relaxation and, naturally, enjoy the odd glass of wine or two.  

Wines by the Glass at the Wine Room 

Talking of the odd glass of wine we are now serving wines by the glass here at The Wine Room. 

We are offering a range of wines at various price points for you to enjoy with nibbles such as Italian crackers, olives and breads sticks (grissini) or you can select any bottle off the shelf to drink in house for a £8 corkage fee. 

We have some vintage school lab tables and stools to sit at whilst sipping a cold glass of Prosecco or perhaps tasting a South African Sauvignon Blanc. Maybe a nice warming glass of Valpolicella Ripasso. 

When the weather gets warmer we will also have tables and chairs out the front so you can enjoy the Arc de Triomphe ofNorth Kentwhilst sipping a glass of Provencal Rose. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the next phase in the Wine Room.    


Wine Tastings in February 

Our aim is to ensure our wine tastings are a relaxed way to learn a bit more about wine and to discover new taste sensations at a cost of just £10, which includes nibbles. 

We also offer a 10% discount on all wines in the shop, not just the ones we taste, that are purchased on the evening. You can pick them up later at a more convenient time if you wish.

As spaces are limited please let me know as soon as possible if you wish to book some spots.

You can e-mail me at henry@wine-room.co.uk or phone on 01227 77 3141.

We have had a few people booking in and not showing up which makes it difficult for catering and is unfair to those who wish to attend but we can’t fit them in.

Therefore we would ask you to pay upfront to secure your booking.

Obviously if you let us know prior to the tasting or have a genuine reason for not attending we will gladly refund your money.
