This is a quick summary of the wines from last night's wine club tasting, when the theme was White Wines in Tall Bottles. I'll expand and correct this post for posterity as soon as I get the chance; but while there are are wigs on the green about Riesling, it may be helpful for them as weren't present to know what we tasted.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable night once again, with some full and frank exchanges of opinion on the tables. Congratulations to the winner of the mystery bottle competition, who went away with some very good Prosecco and a jar of our hibiscus flowers in syrup.
Next month, on Thursday 29th April, we'll be tasting and discussing some wines made from the Malbec grape. It's likely to be a sell-out again, so book early if you're interested: either buy your ticket online or give us a ring to reserve a place with a credit card.
