Thursday 4th June - #TWSTaste A First Taste of Two New Exhibition Wines

This event had been planned for March and we sadly had to postpone it - but I’m very excited to say it’s BACK! And even if you hadn’t planned on attending the first time around, you’ve got plenty of time to order the wines if you’d like to attend this time:

Top discussions

  1. What wine styles/grapes do you have most of in your collection? [Thanks, @szaki1974!]

  4. The spreadsheet thread - how do you organise your wine collection? [Thanks, @Alchemist!]

New User(s) of the Month

The Community bots :robot: have once again picked two top users from our newcomers to award the New User of the Month badge - congrats to @juraloire (who’s been posting some lovely wines in our Midweek and Weekend drinking topics) and our buyer @lockej who joined us for a Q&A last month and gave us a quick update on the 2018 Port vintage.

Tasting note of the month

Picking a top tasting note from last month was not easy, given how many wonderful wines were discussed, but this from @danchaq was pure poetry:


Nothing this month! Please do let us know if you have any ideas for things you’d like to see here on the Community. :smiley:
