The recent excellent post on the Winter Fine Wine Walkaround tasting by @Nowt_in_my_glass, as well as @szaki1974’s comprehensive round-up of the last Press Tasting, has me pondering the world of tastings and events.
I wondered what it was about these tastings that people enjoy most and leave you satisfied that you made the right decision to attend and to be part of The Society? Obviously there are hundreds, if not thousands, of wine events taking place all over the country throughout the year, so getting it right really matters.
Have you been to any tastings or events?
What advice would you give other members so they can make the most of them?
- For many first-time attendees or new members, tastings might look intimidating so let us know how you felt about them.
- How do you keep track of the wines you taste, and which were your favourites - and which you then buy?
- There are discounts available to those who attend, but you have to be quick, so how do you manage this?
- Do you ever add your notes to the reviews section on the website so others can benefit from your experience?
I look forward to hearing your thoughts as I plan to attend some of the tastings scheduled before Christmas to let members there know about the community, but I also feel that the Community needs to know more about Tastings.
