Good morning, Community!
Well, what a lot of fun we had last night! If you missed our Rioja tasting, you can catch up here:
You also voted on the next tasting you’d like to see, so let’s get it in the diary:
New #TWSTaste: red and white Burgundy, Thursday 2nd April 8-9pm
Like yesterday’s event, 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.
It doesn’t matter if it’s the finest names or Burgundy on a budget - all bottles are welcome, as are you.
If you haven’t got any Burgundy and want to open something else and taste along, that’s fine too. Maybe you have chardonnay or pinot noir from another part of the world? Bring one along and we can compare how they differ from examples of this grape from Burgundy!
Here’s how to take part:
- Have a look to see if you have any Burgundy at home. If you don’t, then while it’s currently not possible to order from us, your nearest indie wine merchant may be able to deliver.
- Reply to this topic saying what Burgundy you’ve got - and if you’ve got more than one option, feel free to 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 ask about decanting or get some serving suggestions/food matches lined up.
- Log in to the Community just before 8pm on Thursday 2nd April - there’ll be a topic called ‘LIVE #TWSTaste: red and white Burgundy’ 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.
Who’s joining us?
- I’ll be there!
- I haven’t got any Burgundy/pinot or chardonnay from elsewhere, but I’ll come along for the chat
I hope you can join us! If you can’t make it, we’re currently planning the following week’s tasting to be all about FIZZ!
