Nik Darlington of Pip of Manor Farm

"Old Dogs, New Tricks: When classics take you by surprise" presented by Nik Darlington from Pip of the Manorthe new wine shop in Seale which Nik started last year. Nik also founded Red Squirrel Wines, the online wine store, which has become Graft Wines where he is marketing director. He lives near Seale and has been a frequent and popular WSWS speaker.


Nik has chosen an eclectic selection of wines which he describes as a roll call of some of Pip's best selling wines, whether in the new Pip shop or out in the restaurant trade, and typically well-known wines or regions but made in surprising ways. including a classically robust South African red... but from closer to Botswana than Stellenbosch.
