SOMMELIER + HIS & HER OPINIONS

OakVilla Wine Cellar Shenanigans​

Navigating our way through seriously good wine and food.  Each bottle entering the OakVilla Cellar will be firstly reviewed by a professional sommelier from our local wine hero @Harperwells. Secondly a review by the Lord of the Cellar followed by a review by the Lady of the Cellar. Our opinions are our own and we hope that they will add a splash of excitement to navigating your own way through our Cellar.

GIN DISTILLERY + RESTAURANT + WINE CELLAR = OAKVILLA

It wouldn’t be appropriate to start this sentence with a hiccup nor would it be decent to slur our words as we type.  We originally narrowed the OakVilla Cellar selection down to 11 bottles from the Sunny South Africa, 7 from Australia, 7 from Chile, 2 from Argentina, 3 from the USA, 19 from France, 9 from Spain, 14 from Italy, 3 from New Zealand and 1 German.  That is a staggering lineup of 76 varieties of wines within the OakVilla wine Cellar.  The Cellar however keeps on growing and we have now added a range of dessert wines.

Hiccup.  

 Keep an eye on the Blog for the three way tasting notes (His, hers and the Sommeliers).
