Why Lay Down Wine?


Drinking fine wines at their delicious peak is one of life’s great pleasures – all the more so when the price one paid for it is a distant memory.

In this short video, head of buying Tim Sykes and wine buyer Joanna Locke MW discuss the benefits of laying down fine wines, from the changes that occur in bottle over time to the special moment when the cork is pulled.

    A useful way of learning more about wine. The video makes it better than text alone.

    Clear and intelligent – thank you! It made me think again about laying down wine, especially as the Society can store it properly for me.
