• Having just booked a trip to visit Colombia and Central America, receiving an invite to visit Café Malbec, the new venture from the Latino America team, couldn’t have been timed any better. I’ve visited Latino America several times and always enjoyed the succulent steaks and well-paired wines, so I was intrigued to see what Café Malbec had to offer.

So I went on a mission to find out which pubs were serving mulled drinks, how much they cost and most importantly, which tasted best.

  • Waiting at the bus stop at Steine Gardens with my dad, I recalled the ‘magical mystery tour’ adventures he would take me on as a child. Back then the bus could transport me on any manner of exciting adventures, and the Sussex Wine Bus Tour we were about to board rekindled those memories.
