Every year since this Community launched we’ve held a Wine Champions #twstaste event so we can taste two of the year’s Champs together - and why break with tradition?
They’re fun informal nights - it’s all done in writing rather than video - although you’re welcome to get a Zoom group together with some Community friends so you can chat with each other while you type!
This year, it’s Chianti themed…
Wine Champs #TWSTaste: Chianti Champs! Thurs 9th July, 8-9pm
The two wines we’ll be trying are:
NOW SOLD OUT - SEE BELOW FOR MIXED CASE
Chianti Rufina, Frascole 2016
NOW SOLD OUT - SEE BELOW
Chianti Classico, Castello La Leccia 2016
If you’d still like to attend, order the mixed case:
Some of us (myself included!) didn’t get a chance to order the wines individually before they sold out - but luckily, there’s a Chianti Champions mixed case (featuring a third (!) 2016 Chianti which won in this year’s Wine Champs)!
Fancy joining us? Here’s how to take part:
If you’d like to join us, here’s what to do:
- Order one bottle each of the above wines (or the mixed case listed above) and make sure they’re delivered by Thursday 9th July
- Reply to this topic once you have your wines ready - feel free to post a picture of your bottle, we love seeing all your photos!
- If you like, decant your bottles ready for the event (you can even plan to cook a dish or two to try alongside them, if you like! We like to discuss food matches )
- Log into the Community shortly before 8pm on Thursday 9th July - you’ll find a topic called ‘ LIVE #TWSTaste: Chiant Champs ’ where the event will take place. We’ll guide you through the tasting from there - don’t be shy to share your thoughts on the wines!
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’
