Good afternoon/evening everyone!
Welcome to tonight’s LIVE ‘Tapas night!’ virtual tasting. If you’re planning to participate tonight then thank you - we’ll be trying three wines from our Summer Drinking in Style offer which we think will be a delicious match for a variety of tapas dishes.
If you’re new to The Community and need help with how to use the forum for the tasting and what the tasting involves, have a read of our guide 'How To - Take part in our virtual #TWSTaste events
The wines we’ll be trying are:
Muga Rosado, Rioja 2019
The Society’s Cava Reserva Brut NV
The Society’s Medium Dry Amontillado Blend
You can choose any Tapas dish(es) you fancy for tonight’s tasting, but if you need some inspiration, take a look at some of these recipes from our website:
Who’s on hand to help tonight
Please feel free to use the below usernames and tag any of our staff if you need a hand (and if you’re new to The Community, please don’t hesitate to ask any questions you might have!)
Here’s how things will work:
- We’ll post a poll to see who’s here - please let us know, and feel free to say hi and start chatting before we start. Any photos of your Tapas dishes are also more than welcome!
- To begin, we’ll invite you all to pour a glass of the first wine, have a swirl and take in the aromas, and post your thoughts and first impressions. Feel free to take your time and have a good swirl and sniff.
- We’ll then taste the wines together, one by one and ask you to share your own tasting note. Feel free to add your additional food matches and/or your thoughts on how well the wine is drinking now, and how much longer it might age. Anything goes, and there are no wrong answers!
- After this, we’ll possibly have time to ask for your mark out of 10, favourite wine of the three or final thoughts.
And after that, if people want to continue chatting about the wines then please do!
