This “Classy Deal” Just Got Another Touch of Class

beast niel

AFC Wimbledon have officially guaranteed themselves safety in League One! We are over the moon for them. We will be attending the final game of the season on Saturday to present Manager, Neal Ardley with a much deserved bottle of something special. Neal has guided the club since 2012. During this time he has helped to further Wimbledon's position. We cannot think of a better man to take the team forward even more. We will also be playing in Wimbledon's annual Sponsors Football Match on the 8th of May. Hopefully Neal will be able to sprinkle some of his football magic on our staff....

How to trade fine wine successfully

article 1

You're nearly ready to take your first steps towards building a wine portfolio. There are important question you should ask yourself before you make a purchase. The most obvious one being, "who should I buy from"? There are signs and indicators which may appear obvious but are often overlooked. 1) How does the company you're considering working with store your fine wines after purchase? The right answer: Wines should be stored within a private account which solely belongs to the owner. This is the most straight forward and risk eliminating way to trade fine wines.

The right answer: In a government regulated, climate controlled Bonded-warehouse. UK Agora use the London City Bond (LCB) who are the UK's longest...

We’re Following the Dons, Are You?

UK_Agora_Ltd_Logo_Final_Transparent_White

As you may know by now, UK Agora are proud hospitality sponsors of AFC Wimbledon. Today we are proud to learn that Rivals MK Dons, who infamously "stole" Wimbledon's Football League position when the club was forcefully relocated to Milton Keynes have been relegated to League Two. During this time AFC Wimbledon have managed to form a Phoenix club, rise through the Football Leagues and surpass their rivals. Safety is yet to be promised but is still highly possible. When asked to explain this fierce rivalry, Nicholas Gibbs, Sales Director at UK Agora replied "You cannot clone enthusiasm. It is not something that can simply be purchased - it stems from the fans. The FA made the decision to move the club but it's heart remained in Wimbledon". "Much like with the production of Fine Wine, you could purchase vines from Bordeaux, move them half way around the world, but is that vine going to be an exact...

Boom Times for Austrian Wine

aut1-10006531

An unheralded wine-producing region is enjoying the fruits of its labors – and the spotlight. By Natalie Sellers | Posted Friday, 16-Mar-2018 With a booming worldwide wine trade, it can be tough to pick the next big thing – but the central European country of Austria might just be it. Despite a small 2016 vintage, which reduced Austria's normal export volume by 3.3 percent to 46.8 million liters, the quality continued to be markedly high, leading to Austria's greatest export year for wine. A total increase of 7.4 percent was reported by the Austrian Wine Marketing Board, translating to a record total of €158.6 million ($195m), the first time Austria has made it past €150m. Austrian wine exports rose rapidly from the end of the 1990s, but hit a plateau in 2004. Three years later, another steep rise saw exports almost double by 2013. Growth halted then for another three years, but looks to be...

Cheer on the Dons in pursuit of vital points against Oxford

oxford

Following a rare weekend without a game, the Dons are back in match action on Saturday – and tickets are available to show your support for Neal Ardley's men. In an interview on our website yesterday, long-serving Wimbledon defender Jon Meades talked about players, supporters, and staff working together to stay up this season, and every point is crucial now with just 11 games to go. On Saturday, the Dons renew rivalries with Oxford United, a club with just four points more in League One. Last season, Wimbledon did the double over the men from the Kassam Stadium, finally ending that Oxford hoodoo! A similar performance would be very much welcome this Saturday and you can get your ticket now to cheer on the Dons. Tickets are available for the RyGas terrace and the Chemflow End by booking from our online ticket shop. Alternatively, you can buy in person from the club office...

Wine Spectator Banned in New Jersey Prisons? Plus, ‘Bachelor’ Heads to Hall Winery

UN_Ban011818_1600

Drug paraphernalia. Gang-colored accessories. Knives. Shivs. Shanks. Wine Spectator magazine? One of these things is not like the others, but that may not be an opinion shared by the administrators of New Jersey penitentiaries: Unfiltered has learned that our parent publication appears to be among the books and magazines banned in New Jersey prisons. That's right, New Jersey's incarcerated wine lovers might not be permitted to enjoy their favorite wine publication. The ban came to Unfiltered's attention during the controversy surrounding the state's decision to ban The New Jim Crow, a book about the mass incarceration of people of color (the ban on this particular book has since been lifted after public outcry). The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of New Jersey sent a Government Records Request to the New Jersey Department of Corrections, demanding documents detailing policies on restricting publications, as well as the titles of the banned materials. There,...
