Thank you very much to everyone who attended our Australian Opulence virtual tasting event tonight! You’ve shown some wonderful wines from many of Australia’s wine regions and it’s been a fantastic night as usual!
It’s now time to get our next virtual tasting in the diary:
New #TWSTaste Virtual Wine Tasting: ‘Weird’ Wines, Thursday 28th May, [just after] 8pm-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.
Before we start, we’ll clarify one thing - we don’t believe there are any ‘weird’ wines! One person’s ‘weird’ wine is another person’s treasure! For this tasting, we’re looking for unusual grapes, regions and styles - this will be a chance to explore new wines that you may not have come across before, and an opportunity to stray off the beaten track. Between us, we’ll be trying all things ‘weird’ and wonderful!
It doesn’t matter if it’s a zweigelt from Austria, a marselan from the Languedoc or a Viorica from Moldova - anything that you want to open is welcome, as are you!
If you haven’t got any unusual wines and want to open something else and taste along, that’s fine too. Bring along a bottle and join in anyway - you’ll almost definitely find some inspiration for different wines to put on your ‘must try’ list!
Here’s how to take part:
- Have a look to see if you have any ‘weird’ wines at home. If you don’t, you can currently make your own mixed cases up 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 ‘weird’ wine you’ve got - and if you’ve got more than one option, 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 28th May - there’ll be a topic called ‘LIVE #TWSTaste: ‘Weird’ Wines’ 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.
Don’t worry - we always start the event properly a few minutes after 8pm so we can all join in with #clapforourcarers, if you’d like to participate.
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 ‘weird’ wines but I’ll join 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
