With twice the space, a completely renewed and reorganised collection of children’s books and new furniture, including a touchscreen computer, the new set-up should make children and parents alike very happy!

We will be going on a journey around France's south-western corner, exploring wines from Bergerac and Cahors to the Pyrenees, via Madiran and Gascony, and across to the uplands of the Auvergne. Individualistic wines, made from grape varieties with oodles of personality, many of which are rarely found outside of their south-western heartlands, and which complement the rich gastronomy of the region perfectly.

The tasting will be conducted by Claire O’Boyle from Le Caveau.
