We’d like to get our next virtual tasting in your diaries:
New #TWSTaste virtual wine tasting: Supporting Lebanon, Thursday 10th September, 8pm-9pm
We’d like to use this #TWSTaste as a celebration of Lebanese wine, at a time where the support is very much needed. We really wanted an opportunity for you to either purchase some Lebanese wine for the occasion, or to open any bottle you already have at home to celebrate Lebanese wine with us! Between us, we’ll be trying to taste as many different Lebanese wines as possible, and if you’re a fan of Musar, we could even aim for a Musar vertical tasting! Anything is welcome and we’d love for you to join us.
If you haven’t got any Lebanese wines and want to open something else and taste along, that’s fine too. Bring along a bottle and join in anyway - hopefully you’ll find something to add to your ‘must try’ list!
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’
If you are new to Lebanese wine, you might find it interesting to read this piece on Chateau Musar, ‘Chateau Musar: 90 Years Of Excellence From The Iconic Lebanese Estate’, written by our Director of Wine and Buyer for Lebanon Pierre Mansour:
Here’s how to take part:
- Have a look to see if you have any Lebanese wines at home. If you don’t, you should have time to order some!
- Reply to this topic saying what Lebanese wine you’ve got - and if you’ve got more than one option, please 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 10th September - there’ll be a topic called ‘LIVE #TWSTaste: Supporting Lebanon’ 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 Lebanese wine but I’ll join in anyway.
We’re really excited about this event - we hope to see you there!
