By JAMES COLLINSThe last thing you want to do is get your holiday wish fulfilled by something that’s not good enough.
So when I was invited to give an evening of live music to some of the best wine drinkers in London last month, I was thrilled to be able to share my holiday-themed wine with them.
Myself, my wife and my lovely wife of 25 years, Karen, had already been sharing our wine with guests for years.
I remember getting my first taste of the wine in the 1970s, in a small, intimate bottle.
I’d grown up in the north-east of England, so the place we all came from was a bit like a wine-growing town.
We had lots of great local wine, but the quality wasn’t the same as when we lived in the south-east, like Leeds or Liverpool.
When I was first invited to the London Wine Festival in 2015, I felt a little bit of a twinge of sadness because I had been planning on visiting London for years and would soon be leaving.
I’d spent many years working in the wine industry, and I felt very lucky to be invited to be a part of it.
We were all very grateful to be in the UK for the holidays and to be part of a festival that was all about the wine.
The London Wine Weekend is the only festival that has gone on for over 100 years.
The festival takes place every year, and since the mid-1990s, the venue has grown in size and become one of the most popular events in the city.
The first edition in the mid 1990s featured over 1,000 people.
Since then, it has grown to over 1.3 million people, with the majority of those coming from London and across the UK.
We’re proud to be hosting a very special event for our guests.
The first edition was a great success and has helped us to bring more guests to our event each year.
We’d like to thank our sponsors for their hospitality and support.
We’re so grateful to all of them, as well as the wine producers, winemakers, retailers and restaurants who help us host and support the London wine festival.
We hope that this year’s edition is a bit more festive, festive in style.
We’ll be sharing a festive menu for this year that you won’t want to miss.
It will include some of our favourites from the last few years, such as our famous chardonnay and a few of our other favourites from past years.
And we’ll also be sharing some of my favourite dishes from the past few years that you’ll be loving.
I’ve been trying to create some dishes that I can’t wait to share with my guests this year, so I’m sure they’ll be as happy as I am when I tell them how it tastes.
For the most part, though, I’m happy to share the recipes for my favourites, as I enjoy sharing them with my wife, Karen.
We have some great seasonal dishes coming up in September, so stay tuned.
You can also expect to see some new wine and spirits coming out of our cellar.
And as usual, we’ll be serving up some great local dishes, including our traditional oysters, fish fillets and smoked salmon.
I love sharing them, and they make for a very festive meal.
Happy holidays, and see you at the festival.
