I know there was some comment about this in a previous thread but I can’t find it! So…
Is anyone planning on going to the Glasgow Wine Festival on the 29th June? About the Glasgow Wine Festival - Wine Tasting
I know TWS will have a stand there but was wondering if any of the community will be going. I’m thinking of going and also attending the Chateau Ksara masterclass guided tasting Glasgow masterclasses on sale - Wine Tasting Might be nice to meet up with anyone attending.
I am not going this year, but I have in the past* (and to its predecessors)…
I don’t think you’ll regret it and I should get your tickets asap as I know previous years have quickly sold out - especially the Masterclasses which have a limited capacity.
(*Later edit - last time was in June 2016)
Have already done so because, as you say, it is known for selling out early.
Might have to have an urgent and unavoidable excuse not to umpire that day…Trades Hall is a great venue too…
I’m booked in for that one Mike so look forward to seeing you on the 29th. I noticed that the Lebanese masterclass is now sold out.
I’m booked for the Edinburgh event in November, I’m not sure if the tickets are sold out yet but I know last year they were gone by June .
We’ll have to sort something out closer to the time!
I think I’d have preferred the Edinburgh one but I’ll not be able to make it as I’ll be in South England at that time.
I shall be at both the Weegie and the Reekie iterations, and look forward to seeing you all then!
@MarkC did you come up with an unavoidable excuse or will you be giving it a miss?
@JD1892 You still coming to Glasgow? I should be arriving at Queen’s Street around 12 and heading straight over the Trades Hall. Maybe we could meet at the TWS stand around 1300? I have the Lebanon masterclass thing at 1545.
Anyone else going to be there?
Sadly no, however I’ll be at the Edinburgh one in November
Umpiring on Sat so no. Winter ones are better for me.
I’m still going on Saturday. I Booked the Champagne tasting at 12.45 so we could meet up at 1.30 at TWS stand?
We’ll be thinking of you @MarkC, standing under that hot sun on Saturday afternoon !
See you there. We’re usually table 1 (immediately on the left as you come in).
Great stuff Ewan, looking forward to saying hello.
Cool will see you on the day at around 1330! And your good self @Ewan!
I am umpiring at Irvine, which is never warm. Much rather be at Nunholm - where I have been twice this year already.
Enjoy yourselves and raise a glass to me as I turn down the nth improbable lbw appeal…
Good to catch up with @JD1892 and @MikeFranklin in Glasgow today.
Wow! It’s looking busy in there… amazed you still got stamina, @ewan, after last night’s Bacchanalia!
Looking forward to hear of some favourite wines, Mike and Jim
