Renovation & Tastings! 30/08/2010
Mig's is renovating! New shelving, new work space, a new counter... So it'll be a « work in progress" in store for a week or two, but it's business as usual, so bear with us! Thanks in advance.
With this in mind, it'll be a light tasting for "la rentrée". More news from Belgium: no, not a new government, a new wine! : De Kluizen pinot noir. This will be followed by a couple of fortified wines, yet to be chosen.
The big news is that at last Mig's is organizing wine tasting evenings (info here below). Book in early to ensure your partake in these fun moments. Cheers!
MIG'S WORLD WINES LAUGH n' LEARN EVENINGS!
Mig's will be hosting 4 "ABC" wine tasting evenings starting in September: once a month, on a Thursday from 7pm till 8H30pm.
September 16: "Once upon a time..." A history of wine: how it all started, how it conquered the world.
October 14: "Roots": the vineyard. What (varietals), where (geography, soil, climate...) & when (to prune, to harvest...)
November 4: "Bunches in barrels": the work in the winery, wine styles & winemaking.
December 9: "A lovely couple": wine & food pairing.
Mig's wants you:
- To enjoy yourselves
- To learn while having fun
- To discover & taste a large variety of world wines (8 per evening)
The four evenings can be attended separately. If you want to make the most out of it, attending all four will boost your knowledge.
The evenings will be hosted by Xavier in French, Dutch & English -also in Italian, Spanish & German if needed! (*More info about Xavier further down). The sound of Xavier's laughter is even bigger than his knowledge of languages & wine! You'll be welcome to join in! Smart comments & dumb questions alike will be highly encouraged.
All you need to do is send us a mail to book the evenings you have chosen. Numbers are limited to 15 people, on a first come first served basis, so be quick! We will send you a confirmation of your booking and details for payment. The cost of each evening is 20.00 € per person (including bread & water, but, sorry, no food!). Participants will be offered a 10 % rebate on any wines purchased or ordered that evening.
Oh! These evenings will take place in store, here at Mig's World Wines, 43 Chaussée de Charleroi, 1060 Bruxelles. Tel: 02/534 77 03.
