THE TASTING

We will be tasting two barbecue-friendly wines from our Under £7 range:

ROSÉ

RED

Shortly we will be posting some information on the first wine - and we will start asking for your thoughts - but feel free to introduce yourselves first and see who else is here tonight - and share what BBQ feasts you’ll be eating alongside the wines.

Thanks, as always to the #TWS Taste team: @ewan, @robert_mcintosh and @martin_brown!

I’m here, and although the weather is not hot enough to justify actually lighting the BBQ outside, I’ve lightly chilled the red since it is SO MUGGY!!!

Greetings from Brighton! Inbar here… on my own this time, but hubby did a ‘preliminary’ tasting with me, so I recorded some of his impressions for posterity :wink:
Looking forward to it!
We ate some lovely veggie curry with a glass of the rose, so no BBQ this side of the Sussex Downs…

Reporting in with Mr JayKay. No BBQ here either, but salmon about to be served.

We have been unable to resist the food already! Wines at the ready

I couldn’t persuade my wife to join me; she has to prepare for work tomorrow :(. No food here either, just two bottles of wine.

Croquet Chris and Mrs CC here with Mrs CC’s father. This time we are in Budleigh Salterton rather than south Wales because I am playing in a croquet tournament!!


#13

Oh, we’ll be nice and gentle… can’t vouch for the wines! :wink:

Thanks for the guidance Leah - we got here. Two of us in Nottingham, with sausages and kebabs - burgers if we’re still hungry.

Here for the first time. Just enjoyed a nice steak but only just opened the wine!

This is our first also - although followed the Chile tasting a day after the event.

Hic! I must confess I’ve already had dinner.

Has anyone tasted yet?
