Raising a glass, together

Not sure, but hoping to squeeze another one in before Christmas, them we can see :slight_smile:

In the diary. How about live video feeds?a way to upload tastings as they happen and also photos etc.

Let’s face it, there is nothing exciting about watching another person sniff, sip and spit wine on camera. Since these events are about the wines, I don’t think we need video, though some audio format may be fun for the future, something like a live podcast

Bringing Society tasting events to life is a different issue and one we will be exploring soon

I’d definitely be up for that. Count me in!


Sadly I’m going to have to give this one a miss but will keep my eyes peeled for the next one!

Excellent! We have some recruits already and we will encourage more to join us through twitter and beyond.

The wines we are going to taste are the following, both available in the South Africa offer that should just have landed on your doorsteps:

Both wines can be bought individually or are included in the Cape Mixed Dozen offer so that they are easy to get hold of.

Do make sure you order them in good time so they can rest and chill before we taste.

I look forward to tasting along with you all on the 18th

We’re very happy to be able to publicise this more widely now that the community is public. If you get a chance, share the tweet to encourage other members to join us in the community, and the tasting:

Ahhh. I’ll be on a plane, to Spain.

See you next time!

Okay, that is seriously tempting


Sadly elsewhere, maybe next time

Shame, but definitely hope to get you along next time

VERY excited about this - and both wines have extremely interesting backgrounds and stories behind their producers etc too so it will be a great start to kick off The Community’s interactive tastings!

Who else is planning on taking part? :smiley:

Ready… 10 days to go

Not sure why the mobile upload rotated this photo… @robert_mcintosh


not sure - maybe it was actually only displaying as horizontal on mobile but was, in fact still a portrait image

Will try to test

It was portrait with the bottles the right way…

Have enjoyed these over the last couple of years so we’ll be there.


A reminder for all those thinking of joining us for this tasting event that you have only just over a week to organise delivery of the wines in advance of the night. These tastings are always lots of fun, so I do hope you can join us

Did you want to tweet it again so those who missed the first one can still join?

Having done a little research has jut increased my anticipation…

The red a blend of Rhone varieties Syrah 86%; Mourvèdre 13%; Viognier 1%…
The white potentially a blend of circa 70% chenin blanc and the rest Rhone varieties Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Clairette Blanche

So they should be 1% the same… :wink:
