Catherine Owen is usually to be found on a Saturday in our historic shop at No. 3 St James’s Street, helping customers to find wines that excite them. Tonight, however, she will visit St James’s on a Friday to share her passion for ‘off-the-beaten-track’ white wines, to include such rarities as a Sauvignon Blanc from Burgundy, a South African Rhône blend, an eight-year-old white Rioja and a gorgeous Greek grape!
Don’t miss this opportunity to unearth a whole series of unusual white treasures, and allow Catherine’s infectious enthusiasm for wine to educate and enthrall you.
