'Shellfish BRUT' - Fal Oyster and Camel Valley BRUT September 15 2014, 0 Comments

Exciting news... during the summer we met up with Sam at Camel Valley Wines and asked if we could sell Camel Valley Sparkling Wines with our unique Fal Oysters in our new pop up restaurant & bar - Ostraca.co.uk - his reply was better than we had ever hoped for as they didn't have anyone they could work with at outdoor events, festivals, weddings etc.  

Ostraca Cornish Shellfish Box is the "1st Official Camel Valley Wine Bar" - and with the new Protected Designation of Origin status for our 'Fal Oyster' - we think we have a winner on any menu with "Cornwall's reply to the French Champagne & Oyster" !

Can't wait... well then you can order online now...
