The time has come to organise a collective raising of glasses. How about the 18th October?
TWS Taste Events 2017
If you have been following The Society on twitter for some time, you will know that over the last couple of years we have run a very popular event every couple of months called #TWSTaste.
The idea of these events was to use the power of social media to connect members of The Wine Society, wherever they happened to be, to taste the same wines at the same time, together, and then be able to discuss them.
When twitter was a little less busy it was easier to follow along, but as they years, and the volume, increased, it has become difficult to track all the many posts that make up such an event on a public platform.
However. the idea is still a good one, and we want to continue the experience of these fun, informal versions of led tastings where we give you a little more background on a pair of wines, as we would in a relaxed seminar, then we all taste and comment on the wines at the same time. It creates a great conversation, and a good excuse to try something new as well as meet new people.
For this edition we propose to bring the tasting into the community. After all, “connecting members of The Wine Society, wherever they happened to be” is the very essence of this community. In any case, it is much easier to follow the comments here and to reply to others. In addition, all members can have access, even those who choose not to be on twitter and it creates a handy, lasting guide for future members browsing the site for ideas and recommendations.
DATE FOR YOUR DIARY
So, put a date in your diary for 19:00 - 20:00 (UK) on Wednesday 18th October, 2017
There will be a pair of wines that are usually well under £10 each, and readily available to all members, so anyone can take part. Be sure to pop them in your basket as soon as they are announced (unless you happen to have them already).
Are you interested? Let me know if you think you could take part, and if you have any questions, feel free to post them here and I can explain further
