Wine Man's Bluff (14th Oct )
ARE YOU A WINE BUFF – OR A WINE BLUFFER
A distinguished panel will assemble for the popular Wine Man’s Bluff event which will take place at The BIG Sheep’s EWE2 arena on Saturday 14th October at 7.30pm. However, the eminent quartet will be doing their utmost to deceive during what will be a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Based on the premise of the popular TV show ‘Call My Bluff’, teams will taste a variety of wines from around the world before hearing a different description of the wine from each of the panelists. The idea is for the team to pick the correct description, and avoid the bluffers on the panel. The event which is sponsored by Tesco Bideford, is an event for local charities.

Anne Tattersall event organizer is looking forward to the event and says, ‘This charity event promises to be a wonderful night out, and people who come along will get to sample a number of tasty wines, before having a lot of fun debating which of the panelists is bluffing in their descriptions. Cheese and biscuits will also be included in the ticket price, to soak up some of the wine you will get through.
Stuart Wood manager of Tesco Bideford who are sponsoring the event is looking forward to the evening. “Tesco Bideford are proud to sponsor this charity event and provide all the wine and food for the supper. We are looking forward to raising money for Northam Lodge and North Devon Hospice. We are grateful to all our amazing panelists and The BIG Sheep event’s team for hosting the event. This will be an enjoyable night out including wine, food and auction, all in aid of two great charities - what more could one ask for?"
Peter Rollinson of Bray Valley Wines is the mischief maker behind the panelists and has been very creative coming up with the bluff and truth cards and has said, "There may be one or two people who will attempt to get me drunk in the hope that I will reveal the bluffs and truths but there will be no corruption and no-one will get to the secret of the wines."
Wine Man’s Bluff will be held on the evening of Saturday 8th October at The BIG Sheep family attraction. Tickets are £10 including wine and supper.
