Welcome @Embee, great to have you here! Looking forward to hearing about all your wine recommendations and discoveries.


#446

Thanks Leah, i’m very much looking forward to joining in the various conversations. The weekend drinking thread seems like a great place to start, here goes…


#447

Oh, there isn’t one as yet. Later then !


#448

Welcome. There is some ‘guff’ hereabouts but some real insightful stuff too.

that would probably be from the Allan Cheesman era at Sainsbury’s. One of my wine heros and a man who did much to improve the UK wine market.


#449

Why don’t you start one??


#450

Thanks for the welcome. And yes. I have lot to thank Allan Cheeseman for too. My bank manager might disagree though.


#451

OK, i’ll give it a go. The only way to gain confidence is to practice !


#452

Exactly :+1:! Looking forward to hearing what you are drinking this weekend :wink:!


#453

@Embee. … and cycling ( actively and passively ).
Does that involve sitting at the back on a tandem?


#454

Haha, not as yet but i’m quite happy to suck a wheel or two !

Hi there. My name’s Ed. I’ve realised that I’ve contributed to a number of conversations without actually introducing myself.

I’m a teacher in Glasgow, married with one child who is five years old. I’m a bit of a rookie when it comes to wine buying, but I’ve recently passed my WSET level 2, and thoroughly enjoying learning more and more.

I’m wondering if there are any wine gatherings among members in Glasgow. Always keen to join in, child care permitting!


#456

Welcome, Ed! :smiley:

This would be a great topic for our local tasting groups category - we don’t have any Scottish groups currently and I’d love to help you start one if there are Glasgow-based members lurking here!


#457

Hi Laura,

Many thanks.

It would be great to start a local tasting group. I’ll have a look at the info on the local tasting groups page.


Congratulations: New Member(s) of the Month

Ed. Unsure of the etiquette but there is the occasional offline in Glasgow on another UK Wine forum. You may also want to consider the festival of wine events in Glasgow in June and Edinburgh in November


#459

The Wine Society will have a table at the Fratival of Wine in both Glasgow and Edinburgh, as we always do :relaxed:

See you there! (I will probably be at the dinner at Cail Bruich the night before the Glasgow event.)


#460

I’m going to Edinburgh this year too :wink:!


#461

Look forward to seeing you both!


#462

On second thoughts … :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::joy:


#463

Grand. Thanks for this. Will look into it!


#464

Great. I’ll need to come visit the society table!
