Looking at the family calendar this morning, it occurred to me that quite a few of the social events, marked neatly with a purple ‘sharpie’, are tasting events.
Which got me thinking about what makes me (for ‘tis I who make all the bookings) choose certain events over others. With so much choice (and my god, it seems every local wine shop offers tastings at the moment – which is, of course, brilliant!) – I sometimes feel I may be using a scattergun approach, wanting to try everything, now!!!
Well, not quite – but I wonder how you decide which tastings to book (and I don’t just mean TWS events)? Is it just a grape or region you’re interested in that motivates you, or do other factors come into it? Or maybe it’s the opposite- maybe there’s not much going where you are, and it takes a serious effort to attend any at all?
What’s currently in your calendar…?
