Oooh sounds great :+1:!


#3

Just going to ‘bump’ this seeing as it got lost in all the #twstaste excitement!

We’re looking for questions on anything to do with party/wedding wines or Marjorie’s top picks from the Showroom. Ask away…


#4

What are the best selling wines in the Showroom? I’d be interested to see whether they correspond to the online sales or do in showroom promotions influence buyers?

Second question, I frequently purchase this wine for my MIL, as she is an old skool “Will only drink Chardonnay” type of person,

I’ve also discovered this recently as a value for money summer wine :sunny:


And this, which will now become the “friends over, summer fizz” wine:

What other Summer party wines do you recommend, that are A) inexpensive, (As I loathe to provide wine for friends who drink like fish and have no appreciation for decent wine).
B)Not well known… ie: Portugese/ Greek etc…
C) More upmarket (for smaller groups) higher quality but refreshing.

Thanks

On my visits to the showroom I’m always impressed with the available choice, but I wondered what percentage of wines currently on the TWS list are available to buy in the showroom? And, what factors drive the selection?

Are bin end bottles all the ‘left overs’ of wines bought in quantity by TWS or are there any that are ‘special purchases’ which sometimes is the case in other shops’ non-wine related sales?

#10

Are there better ‘bin end’ deals in the showroom than online?

If you were getting married this weekend, what would you choose as your red, white and sparkling options?

I’d be interested to follow up on a conversation I had with @cgoldin about events and Sale or Return.

I gather that this is available for larger events when you aren’t sure of the volumes required. How often is this actually requested, and how often is any wine actually returned?

What state is this wine in, in your experience if/when it is returned, and what happens to it? I know that @Tim_S discussed this from a tastings point of view, but it would be very interesting to get the Showroom perspective too.

I know that if I was organising an event I would certainly keep this option in mind

Oooo now there’s an idea…


#16

#17

Do you give any discount on large number of wines purchased for a wedding or party??

Interested to hear the answer to this one :wink:


#22

I’m interested what the average customer age is. I think of myself as being on the younger end of the wine enthusiast age range. I’m in my late 30s, but in my head I’m in my 20s. That is until I spend any time with someone in their 20s - then I feel like I’m in my 40s :wink:
