A Taste of Summer. To stimulate positive thoughts about summer and summer holidays the Houghton Wine Company will be presenting a selection of wines suitable to drink during long lunches and on balmy summer evenings. These will include red and white wines and, for those of you who have not tried one before, a sparkling red.
