Pol Roger to host London and Manchester portfolio tastings

The Pol Roger Portfolio is to hold two tastings this March in London and Manchester to mark its 30th anniversary.

The first tasting will take place at Principals at Sessions House in London on 24 March and then the second at the Cloud 23 Bar on the 23rd floor of Beetham Tower in Manchester on 26 March.

The entire range of wines and spirits, including Joseph Drouhin, Staglin Family Vineyards, Grand Tokaj and Glenfarclas, will be presented at each tasting and it will also be the first chance to taste new agencies Kinsman Eades and TOR Wines from California, bolstering the existing high-end US offering.

The latest vintages from Pol Roger, including the 2009 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill and 2012 Rosé and 2016s from Staglin Family Vineyards, will also be available to taste.

James Simpson MW, managing director of Pol Roger Portfolio, said: “2019 exceeded all of our expectations; we were delighted to discover that there was a genuine appetite for a comprehensive agency-wide tasting which informed serious buying decisions.

“We want to be able to invite all of our existing and potential customers, from across the country, hence expanding our geographical reach with a tasting in both London and Manchester. On 24 and 26 March, in London and Manchester respectively, we look forward to welcoming our agency Principals from across the world.”
