Hickstead – Longines Royal International Horse Show

Team Hannibal Brown packed up our travelling wine stand and headed to Hickstead, Sussex, for the Royal International Horse Show.  Needless to say, it was very, very wet!  We still have some great Personalised Wine orders for winners which we designed on the spot.  A great gift or prize for any event.

We took a great range of wines, which varied from a classic Ribero del Duero through to a Biodynamic Gruner Veltliner from Austria.  The latter being our best seller!

We do love our hardy outdoor customers.  Adorned with sensible boots, good solid waterproof hats and a willingness to enjoy their day whatever the whether, the crowds came to enjoy the show and get stuck into the shopping and food offerings.

 

Our favourite food stand was undoubtedly The Curry Squad – fantastic Indian Street Food to go!  www.currysquad.com  Their Gluten Free Onion Bhajis went brilliantly with our Villa Wolf Pinot Noir Rosé from Germany – try the combination to believe it!

We’ve included some pictures of our personalised label designs and general scenes from the event.

It’s not just at our outside events that we design fabulous labels, you can order online by clicking here, or you could visit our wine shop hannibalbrown.com to view our full range of wines – it’s free delivery on 12 bottles and no minimum order!  Enjoy!

BNI Kingston – Summer Wine and Food Pairing

Wednesday 19th July 2017 in sunny Raynes Park BNI Kingston and some plus 1s put their palates on the line and enjoyed a delicious wine and food pairing hosted by Hannibal Brown team Pamela Gregory and Jude King and the very talented chef, Elliot Johnson Paul of JP Dining.

Elliot produced a selection of canapés and bowl food to make your mouth water.  Each accompanied and complemented a different wine.  The list of the wines and canapés can be seen below along with some photos of the evening.

Our Summer Organic, Biodynamic and Natural Wine Tasting

It was a very warm Thursday on the 6th of July 2017 and we converged on Raynes Park Library for a fantasia of Organic, Biodynamic and Natural wines with a good helping of cheese and chat!
