We’ve voted Urbina as we’d more likely order that again but the white is extremely interesting and would be a great thing to introduce other people to at a dinner party (perhaps as an alternative to a Sauternes?).
The Cour-Cheverny only just gets my vote. The Urbina is fantastic, but I find the Cheverny more interesting.
Might just go and have a look at the Urbina on the website…
Ooh, it’s pretty close but the Rioja just pips it!
Well THANK YOU sincerely all of you for another fascinating and wonderful evening - it was honestly so great to taste these wines with you and hear your brilliant insight (and food matches!)
Our next event is another ‘bring a bottle’ - and we thought it was a good time to celebrate all things SOUTH AFRICA!
I’d love you all to join us - it’s a country I haven’t explored enough and I bet there’s some special bottles squirreled away in your wine racks/cellars!
Then we’re planning a summery TAPAS NIGHT FIESTA for August 27th with three wines picked to try and a video from our food-matching guru Emma Briffett from the Tastings team - more details to follow very shortly.
I hope you’ve had as great a night as I have! Thanks again, all! (And thanks @MrLaura for joining me as our other Society staff presence!)
I like the idea of having it as a paired wine with a cheese/dessert course.
Thanks for another great evening @laura. Much enjoyed! And another wine I’ll probably repeat buy!
Thanks again for a wonderful tasting. The wines were really interesting and it is good to hear what everyone has to say about them.
thanks for a lovely evening and an introduction to the cour chiverney that I would never have tried otherwise
Thanks everyone for a great evening.
My eyes have been re-opened to Rioja
Thanks for the great evening
I also now know about quince!!
Thank you for such a lovely tasting. Great wines and company!
Me either! I’m so glad I had an opportunity to try it with you all - one I’ll definitely order again.
Thanks for a fun evening! The first TWS event we’ve participated in and very enjoyable it was too.
And now to finish the apple pie!
So glad you enjoyed it
Absolutely brilliant you could join us! I hope you join us for another one soon, and stick around for the wine chat (there’s a lot of it about, here!).
Great evening. Thanks all!
