Last night's fortified wine tasting with Ian was very enjoyable indeed.
That was our last regular tasting of 2012, and the final event will be
the Christmas meal on Tuesday 11th December from 7.30pm (note Tuesday
not Thursday). The meal will take place in the regular tasting room at
Fulham Wine Rooms. We can accommodate a maximum of 20 for the meal and I
am taking bookings now. The all-in price will be £40, including service
(see menu attached - they can also do gluten free meals). This covers
the cost of the food and I will provide the wine 'free' from the
Society's coffers. Luckily, we don't need to pay corkage, etc. Hence, I
have a good budget for the wine and I should be able to provide some
excellent choices, starting with champagne and ending with the port!
I'll circulate the wine list once I have worked it out.
I think I will take payment in advance from late November and ask you to
make your provisional menu choices. The following people have told me
that are coming so far: Ian M, Cheryl, Ann W, Vic, Glenda, Ian B. Please
let me know if you'd like to come along.
On the 22nd of November, I'll again be presenting some fine, old and
rare St. Emilions for my friend David Beguier-Barnett, as before at
Broadway House in Fulham:
Tickets are available from Broadway House or David. For those that also
enjoy younger Right Bank claret (like me!), David has now added some
wines from the 2000's to the event.
