The popular Aztex Venue in St. Anne’s will be the first event venue in the area to serve Glera (the Prosecco grape) by the glass, following an agreement with Blackpool based Silver Fox Wines.
Silver Fox Wines is the North-West agent for Kent based Italy On Tap Ltd, the UK importer and distribute for Glera, from which is produced a single estate Frizzante sparkling wine. Glera (the Prosecco grape) is farmed at a 100 years’ old family run vineyard in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, the Prosecco region of Italy.
Formally the old casino in St. Anne’s, the family run Aztex Venue was transformed into a spacious, function room and performance venue in 2016.
Rowland Hayward, owner, Silver Fox Wines said: “Aztex Venue is the first event venue in St Anne’s to take advantage of this single estate sparkling wine on tap. It will not only give them a good quality product for their customers but will also save them storage space, that previously would have been taken up by 32 bottles of wine, as well as helping with recycling.”
Added Mark Dufour from Aztex Venue: “It is a very proud day for us to be the first stockist of this wine in St. Anne’s and we are delighted that the state of the art serving process has resulted in a better service to our customers.”
