Wine Tasting

Wine Tasting

THY Thursdays 1415-1615 monthly on the 4th Thursday all year round.

(7 sessions:22nd Mar,26th Apr,24th May,28th Jun,26th Jul,23rd Aug,27th Sep)

Conveners:Stephen Kelly Joan Holkar

At each session when we meet, we usually taste six wines - three white and three red - and we chat informally about which we enjoy and why. Some members undertake to bring along wines which they would like to share, and talk about them. We might choose wines from a particular retailer, or a particular wine-growing area, and try to demonstrate as much variety as possible in what we taste. Members then share the cost of the six bottles consumed, usually between two and five pounds (it depends on the number of people present). Twice a year we have a party to which members bring food plus a favourite bottle to share. It's fun. You can come along one afternoon to try us out, but please let us know beforehand

For our November 23rd tasting Les Pickles is co-ordinating a special fine wine event for us, tasting wines costing £15 - £20 each:
We will feature a Barolo, a Gewurztraminer, a sweet Sauternes, a Premier Cru Chablis and a Rioja.

These might give you the idea of something special for your Christmas treat. With 10 people present this will amount to a little under £10 per head (still a bargain compared to Harvey's tastings) but we would like as many people as possible to turn up, and I would therefore be grateful if you could make sure that the date is in your diary, and let both Les lsapickles@btinternet.com and me ej@gibbsholkar.plus.com know whether you are able to come.
