There has been a wonderful response from providers of tastings to the recent pandemic. I have enjoyed a number of different on-line experiences.
There have often been too many to manage at once, so I decided to put the three providers that I was using. With the help of my computer sciences son, I have made it into an html table. I sadly could see no way to make it into a WIKI so that others can update and add information, perhaps someone could help with that?
I’m sure that there are many other events that member might like to advertise to others. I hope I’m not treading on others toes by advertising events outside TWS. I have no affinity with any of the organisations (other than membership of TWS). To save space I have not mentioned the host of the webinar - no disrespect meant.
The events vary in style, 67 Pall Mall is able to provide the wines, see discussion here Lockdown TWS probably has the greatest range of events: Q&As, tastings, masterclasses.
Please do check with websites as I guess there may be a change to publication times. I have just done the week ahead so far.
