Thank you very much to everyone who attended our Sweet and Fortified (with cheese!) virtual tasting event tonight!
This is a great time to get our next virtual tasting in the diary:
New #TWSTaste virtual wine tasting: Roam around the Rhône, Thursday 23rd April, 8-9pm
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.
It doesn’t matter if it’s red Rhône, white Rhône, Northern Rhône, Southern Rhône - anything that you want to open is welcome, as are you!
If you haven’t got any Rhône wine 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 on different wines to put on your ‘must try’ list!

Here’s how to take part:
- Have a look to see if you have any Rhône 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 Rhône 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 23rd April - there’ll be a topic called ‘LIVE #TWSTaste: Roam around the Rhône’ 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.
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 Rhône wine 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
