The Wines of Burgundy - 6 February 2017
We had a hugely entertaining and informative evening with Amanda Skinner who came to share some extremely interesting wines and her extensive knowledge on the history and happenings of Burgundy. We travelled from Chablis to Pouilly Fuisse taking in the stories of many winemaking families as well as learning about those who have converted to biodynamic viticulture and viniculture.
Independent vs Supermarket - 16 January 2017
A fun and competitive evening was had by all when Diana Thompson joined by Tom Sillar put similar wines from the independent head to head with wines from supermarkets. Thankfully for the indie market the independents were the outright winners.
"Another fantastic event - thank you so much Diana. Looking forward to another one soon." - Aimee Hendrickson
"Fabulous evening, relaxed but informative with great company - gave me a real boost for the week." - Fiona Richmond
Festive Wines & Cheese Pairing - 24 November 2016
We all had a very enjoyable evening on with Le Saint Tropez Rosé Company's Eddie McGee who generously brought out wine after wine taking us on a whistle stop tour of the wine regions of Southern France.
Liz Gibbon from Edinburgh Cheese shared some excellent cheeses which we paired with some diliberation and interesting debates to some of the wines. The salamis from Ian Mellis were also much enjoyed - especially the Finnochiona.
"Loved it, many thanks. Really good value" - Viv Hudson
"Perfect evening, really enjoyable" - Seb Bowden
