Thank you very much to everyone who attended our Bordeaux Vertical virtual tasting event tonight! There were some exceptional vintages on show and, as usual, it’s been a fantastic night!
It’s now time to get our next virtual tasting in the diary:
New #TWSTaste virtual wine tasting: Aromatic Whites, Thursday 14th May, [just after] 8pm-9pm
Like our previous few tastings, we’re asking you to raid your wine rack to see what you’ve already got at home, and join together to taste along live next Thursday.
Between us, we’ll be trying to taste as many different aromatic white grape varieties as possible!
It doesn’t matter if it’s a viognier from California, an Austrian riesling or a sauvignon blanc from The Loire - anything that you want to open is welcome, as are you!
If you haven’t got any aromatic whites and want to open something else and taste along, that’s fine too. Bring along a bottle and join in anyway - you might find some inspiration for different wines to put on your ‘must try’ list!
Here’s how to take part:
- Have a look to see if you have any aromatic white wines at home. If you don’t, you can currently buy full cases of an individual wine from our website for delivery, or your nearest indie wine merchant may be able to deliver if our delivery dates before next Thursday are full.
- Reply to this topic saying what aromatic white wine you’ve got - and if you’ve got more than one option, do share notes with your fellow members here and get advice about which bottle to open (feel free to open more than one if you like…). You could also get some serving suggestions/food matches lined up.
- Log in to the Community just before 8pm on Thursday 14th May - there’ll be a topic called ‘LIVE #TWSTaste: Aromatic Whites’ where we’ll host the live event. We’ll all say which bottles we’re opening/share photos of the bottles, and then we’ll taste along together and compare notes, just like we do for a normal #TWSTaste event.
Don’t worry - we always start the event properly a few minutes after 8pm so we can all join in with #clapforourcarers, if you’d like to participate.
If you’re new to The Community and need help with how to use the forum for the tasting, have a read of our guide ‘How To’ - Take part in our virtual #TWSTaste events’
Who’s joining us?
- I’ll be there!
- I haven’t got any aromatic whites, but I’ll join in anyway.
We hope you can join us! If you can’t make it, we’re currently planning the following week’s tasting and we’ll let you all know the theme soon
