Fancy taking part? Add a bottle of each of these wines to your next order and make sure it arrives before 22nd November, and join us here at 8pm to taste along. Feel free to cook up a matching dinner or invite some friends around to join in!
I should be able to make it and Nebbiolo is a grape I’m not very familiar with. I’ll probably skip the sherry as that’s another ‘style’ I’m not a huge lover of. And something that I again may need to look into at a later date.
Okay, I’m in! Just ordered them, should be arriving in plenty of time. I’m looking forward to seeing what the lady of the house makes of dry sherry - as I don’t think she’s yet had the joy - and I fancy the look of that Vajra. I need more nebbiolo in my life, been neglecting it for some years now.
Sadly I will no longer be able to make it. We have had to pull taking our staff out for a Christmas dinner forward into November and the only practical date we can make is the 22nd
The reasons for bringing it forward are entirely my fault. I mentioned elsewhere that last January I did a voyage on the Lord Nelson, a charity run three-masted tall ship, and in spring I did volunteer maintenance work on the ship in Southampton. Now, as they are short of crew for a voyage from Gibraltar to the Canaries in the first two weeks of December, they have offered free places on this voyage to the volunteers. Just too good an opportunity to miss but has rather put the cat amongst the pigeons at work as well as messing up this tasting.
Should be around for this one, though will have more than half an eye on the NFL Thanksgiving games.
Had the Langhe Nebbiolo before but more than happy to taste again! Still haven’t really worked out if and/or which type(s) I like when it comes to Sherry so hoping this one from @Kent_wino will help this journey of discovery…
This is something I’m hoping to finalise today! Basically, we’re hoping we can taste a particular red, but we’re not sure it’ll be in stock in time so we’ve been going back-and-forth behind the scenes trying to find out. We do have a backup idea, so if I can’t finalise when the red is due in today, I’ll just go for that! Will announce this PM…
