“Christmas is such a special time of year, and we know that after missing out last year, people are more excited than ever to celebrate this December. That’s why we’ve decided to launch our pop-up Port & Pie tasting experience. A glass of port really signifies the beginning of the festive season, and we want to help people come together in their celebrations. We hope to see you there!”.
