Wine Festival Online


Mimi Avery leads you through delicious AVERYS wines



TIME: 14:30 - 15:00

Welcome to Averys - and a chance to taste the new vintages of some Wine Festival Winchester customer favourites.

Averys is based in Bristol and is located above a wonderful red brick vaulted cellars shop – well worth a visit when you are next in town.

From the cellars, Mimi Avery will give you a brief overview of the history of Averys. Mimi is 5th-generation Avery at the business that started as a wine merchants in 1793 and became Averys in the 1850s. She will talk you through the three wines, a little history, winemaking and description of the wines.

When you buy 12 bottles or more (of the same or a selection) a discount kicks in. It is always worth “filling your case”. You can buy through the shop, via mailorder or online – but we also have a 16-strong, complimentary Personal Wine Adviser Service which can tend to your every wine need. Delivery is free if you spend more than £200.

Please take a look at our Youtube channel for information about wines, grapes and regions, we are constantly adding to it.

If you're intending to join in this masterclass, please do sign up to the Wine Festival's newsletter. That way, they can keep you updated with the latest details you'll need to know before the event.

Please do chill the white beforehand and be sure to have the wines open and glasses ready to go before the session starts. If you have a Google/Gmail account, please do sign into YouTube ahead of time too - that way you can post comments or questions live during the masterclass. Or get your social media primed and ready! If you have any problems, please email


The wines in this masterclass are as follows; 

Averys Alsace 2019 £11.99 Product code 1456119

We have returned, in 2019, to the original supplier of our own label Alsace, Cave de Hunawhir, and we are delighted that they agreed to make this special selection again exclusively for Averys. This vintage is a Pinot Blanc/Sylvaner blend and is floral and fresh with a crisp finish.

Averys Côtes du Rhône 2018 £12.49 Product code 0924818

Using the expertise of the fourth-generation Martin family and vineyards in premium Plan de Dieu, this is a rich Côtes du Rhône. Specially selected for Averys, it has generous ripe raspberry Grenache fruit, with the peppery black fruit of Syrah.

Averys Haut Medoc 2015 £16.99 product code 3428915

The 2015 vintage is, as Jancis Robinson notes, “a vintage worth making a fuss about”. And that is certainly true of our 2015 Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois. Brimful of black fruits, spice and slight woody notes, it’s a highly drinkable Haut-Médoc red.

Masterclass wines cost £49.00  (includes delivery)

If you want to buy any of our own label range including the above please email events or call the shop (0333 014 8210) and quote ”Winchester” in order to get £15 off and free delivery on a 12 bottle case (mixed or not).
