October 2020 on the Community [new here? Read this!]

Hello everyone,

It’s time for another monthly update to help you find all the top content and upcoming events and news all in one place.

Firstly, are you new here?

Welcome! Why not introduce yourself? And if you need a hand getting used to the technical side of things (how to post/reply, how to bookmark topics etc) check out the How To Guides.

And if you need help, never hesitate to ask me (Community Manager), @Kelly (Community Coordinator) or the @Mentor group (a selection of friendly volunteers made up of your fellow members).

Events this month

There’s just one more event this month (you can catch up on last night’s #twstaste of our favourite small-producer wines here) and it’s a special one:

Fancy organising your own virtual tasting here on the Community? Why not start a new topic and see if any of your fellow members would like to join you?

Other news

On Friday 16th October, there’s an exciting whisky release. Lots of you volunteered to be the first to try the new whisky, and the name drawn out of the hat was @Brenda. Look out for a review from Brenda shortly after the new whisky is announced!

Could there be another exciting wine release later this month? Wait and see…

Top recent discussions to join in with…

Tasting note of the month

And finally, for a bit of fun, I’ve picked a particularly good tasting note (not an easy task, as there’s so many joyously good ones from you all!). September’s top note had to be the long-awaited first review of Bin #006 - thanks (and congrats!) @Joewlmansfield for ending the suspense!

Wow! Thank you!
