WINE GROUP

See below for planned events. If anyone would like to join the (very informal) committee of hosts and helpers please let me know. Please let me have any suggestions for events by type of wine, region, country, grape variety or anything else you can think of.

Forthcoming Events

Tuesday 10th October - Bordeaux: Appellations and Classifications

Our final event of 2017 will be on Tue 10th October at 21 The Mint: a presentation and tasting of Bordeaux: Appellations and Classifications by Roger Campbell.

Trying to identify character claret at an affordable price. A red wine tasting focused on the Crus Bourgeois wines of the Medoc. The presentation will review the current makeup of the Bordeaux Wine Region as a whole, the different Appellations therein, and the trials and pitfalls of attempts since the famous 1855 classification to help consumers by ranking 'the best of the rest'.

Tickets are 10 each. Contact me if you need an application form.

Future Events

This will be our final event of 2017 and once again I would like to ask you to email me with any suggestions for anything you would like us to try for 2018. Also I would once again like to ask for any volunteers to join our unofficial committee. Most of our planning work is conducted by email so it's not too onerous or time consuming. Finally I feel I need a break from organising the wine group, so if anyone would like to take over please let me know.

Kind Regards

John Carroll
