Hold the front page! It's our Summer Press Tasting

Yes, it’s come around already!

Coinciding with the date of our AGM (deliberately, so that all our buyers will be present!) is our next Press Tasting.

It’s happening on Monday 10th June between 10:30 am and 4:00pm at Vinoteca Marylebone, London W1 and, as usual, we’re inviting Community members to take part.

Around 70-80 wines will be available to taste (via glasses, not spittoons) on tables manned by buyers each showing an 8-10 wine selection from their areas that will be available for sale during the summer.

If you would like to be there and are free (or could make yourself free) on that day and between those times, please reply in the affirmative to this post by 12 noon next Tuesday 21st May. We will then draw two names out of a virtual hat and let you know who has been selected that afternoon.

(Oh, and by the way, no pressure, but other Community members have now come to expect tasting notes from the event. Examples from the last time out can be found at the bottom end of this thread.)
