And so the summer is soon to be upon us … or did it all happen in three days last month!?
Whatever the weather, on Monday 11th June we are holding our next press tasting for the great and the good of the UK wine writing universe, and two Community members will also be there. Last time out @Nowt_in_my_glass was going, and then a work commitment came up so we had to have a re-draw! He has confirmed he can come to this one, so we’ll be drawing one name out of a hat at midday on Friday 11th May to join him.
If you’d like to be put in the draw, please let me know. Here are the details:
When: Monday 11th June, 10:30am to 3:30pm
Where: Vinoteca Marylebone, 15 Seymour Place, London W1H 5BD (Marble Arch)
What: c. 80 wines, each of our buyers pouring c. 10 wines from their ‘jurisdictions’ - oh, and a cold buffet lunch.
With whom: UK wine writers and seven of our eight buyers
For some insight to the last press tastings, you can drop a note to those who have attended previously, namely @wamt74 @szaki1974 @woodap and @Leah. And don’t worry, we’re not looking for exhaustive notes afterwards. All have shared their thoughts on the wines tasted, but @Leah was clearly pushing for a job as copy writer last time!
