February 2018 meeting

Eighteen members gathered (including 2 new members, Margaret and Jeff, and a warm welcome to them), for our wine tasting evening on the 6th February. 

Barry, Chris and Janet introduced their favourite red, white and rosé wines from Argentina, Chile and Italy. After much sipping (and a bit of slurping), the members were asked to vote on each wine on a scale of one to ten. 

Their’ favourite wine was a white wine from Chile (Valdivieso, a Sauvignon Blanc, £8.00 from Sainsburys), second was a red wine from Chile too (Bodega Volcanes, a Carménère, £8.00 from Majestic and apparently an ideal wine to accompany ‘Toad in the Hole’) and thirdly a white wine from Italy (Gavi, a Cortese, £9.50 from Morrisons).

Our next meeting on Tuesday, 6th March will be a skittles evening at the Royal British Legion in Limpsfield with food included.
