As alluded to in the Summer Tasting thread, there will be a BYOB dinner at Hawksmoor Guildhall on 23 September 2019 after the South America Growers Walkaround tasting.

Please vote to indicate you participation so we can organise a table for after the tasting. The reason of starting this thread so soon is due to the tasting tickets going relatively fast.

  • Will be at the tasting AND the dinner
  • Will be at the tasting NOT the dinner
  • Will be at the dinner NOT the tasting

Really hope I can make it! It would be useful for me to take the Tuesday off and stay in London at a friend’s house that night, rather than travel back- but it all depends if they will let me have the day off as it’s the first week of term. I’ll let you know as soon as I find out. :+1:


#3

Definitely interested in the dinner, but don’t think i’ll be able to make the tasting unfortunately.


#4

This looks great. Thanks for organising! Will you book the table?


#5

I will sort out the table closer to the event once we have final numbers.

For a variety of reasons I’ve been out of the loop of this community & all you fine folk recently.

Seems I’ve picked an ideal time to return to the fold though!

V keen to attend. Will confirm for definite re tasting/dinner/both next few days.


#8

Unfortunately I won’t be able to join this time… :frowning:

Just a thought - but maybe we can do a lunch again for the next BYOB? coming from outside of London, lunch is much more doable, and means I can get back home at a reasonable time.

Hope you all have a fabulous time! :grinning: :+1:


#9

I am all for a lunch… do you want to organise the next one when the time comes @Inbar?


#10

I would love to! I guess the only issue is that I’m not that au fait with what’s hot and what’s not in the old Smoke. I rarely go out to eat there. But if people suggest things, I’m very happy to organise/book etc. :+1:


#11

No worries, people will be more than happy to help selecting the venue.


#12

Great! consider it a future plan, then :wink:


#13

Appears I was too slow for the tasting (though I’ve joined waiting list).

Definite yes for dinner though. :+1:


#14

On the subject of timing, I’d be able to make a weekend at lunch, but weekdays are not really possible, coming from outside London, and working. Definitely interested in principle in the future, but won’t be able to make this one.


#15

Now have a ticket for the tasting as well :blush:


#16

The list of wines for this walk around tasting has now been posted on line


#17

Thank you for letting us know. But do we really need to be told how to pronounce riesling? (‘reece-ling’ in case you are wondering) If we are assumed to be able to manage the rest of wine 27’s name (Corralillo, for example), I think we be trusted with riesling.


#18

Unfortunately I can no longer make it, which will leave 5 people who currently indicated it works. Still a good number I think. The vote still open in any case.

@Kent_wino, @Alex88, @woodap, @MalcolmV and @AVI6

Make sure you guys arrange your table :wink:


#19

sorry you can’t make it Akos

I am happy to book a table.
Hawksmoor Guildhall is less than 10 mins walk from Merchant Taylors Hall. i suggest I book for 8:15. ie we leave tasting at 8pm.
5 of us still a good number. can everyone just confirm they are still ok for this.

no offers that i could see so we would be on the a la carte menu

Hawksmoor has a £5 corkage charge on a Monday.
how much are we likely to drink post tasting ??
I can offer a cali cab sauv


or perhaps in a Sth american vein a Chilean Cab Sauv
or maybe a vin de constance for pud.


#20

Agree with your thought re timing Chris. Thanks for offering to book.

I’m still available for this.

For South American theme can offer a 2011 Santa Rita Cab or I have a Mendel Unus from the same year (the 2016 is included at the tasting for comparison)

Various alternatives if others prefer a switch of region…
