NEW #TWSTaste Virtual Wine Tasting: Fine Wine Collection 2022, Thursday 24th March, 8-9pm

Hello Community :smiley:

We’re very pleased to announce our first virtual taste-along (#TWSTaste) of 2022! We’re very excited to be back, and we’ll be kicking things off in celebration of our Spring Fine Wine Collection:

#TWSTaste Virtual Wine Tasting: Fine Wine Collection 2022, Thursday 24th March, 8-9pm

For this virtual taste-along, we’ve chosen a red wine and a white wine, both featured in our new Fine Wine Collection. The red is an exciting new wine to our range, and the white is for us to toast the late Jim Clendenen of Au Bon Climat.

The two wines we’ll be trying are:

Italy

Chianti Classico Riserva, Frattoria Montecchio 2016

YAY!

I was wondering what’d happened to these. Excellent news.

These words bring my bank account dread though.

Is that Chianti trying to win a prize for most irritating bottle shape to store? I thought the image was distorted at first but seems that actually how it is!

It certainly looks annoying, but some way short of a fiasco.

Looking forward to it. Have missed them recently. Myself and Mrs CC will have finished our WSET Level 2 course by then - we are half way through. We did the level 1 in November.
