Big Reds from the South
As the lockdown continues, and we are unable to get together, I thought we could try something a little different, so here is a great opportunity to join us online for a one-hour wine tasting session from the comfort of your seat at home!
The idea is that we have a case of wine that is the same for all of us, and on each Saturday, we will all link in via a Zoom session and taste some of the wines together over an hour or so. This will be a fun get together, with each evening themed, and over the hour or so, Justin, Raquel and Mike will share their knowledge and stories as we look at a variety of wine styles from around the world - some familiar to you, some less so.
Each evening we will open and taste 3 of the same wines together. (You need only consume a sample of each and afterwards you can follow our wine preservation tips to keep left overs for another day).
How will we all be tasting the same wine?
Our friends at ‘Its Wine Time’ have put together a Special 3 bottle case for £40 plus £4.50 delivery, which will be delivered to your door prior to the evening at a very good price!
Simply book your space below (a £10 joining fee per houselhold) if you wish to participate and we will send a link for ordering the wines (book a few days before Next Saturday (23rd May) to allow time for delivery). We will also send joining instructions and you will be able to join via Zoom from a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Zoom is proving to be a very sociable medium for wine tasting so we can guarantee you'll have fun! Each session will last just over an hour.
On each evening, we’ll get together, and we’ll talk about the wines, the regions and countries that they came from, share a few stories, and other than that, just have a jolly good yarn over a couple of glasses of wine.
Our wines for this session will be as follows:
Big Reds form the Southern ‘A’s
• Australia - Ass Kisser Shiraz 2017
• Argentina - Gauchezco Reserve Malbec 2018
• South Africa - Simonsig Redhill Pinotage 2016
We are going to keep the tastings light and easy, you certainly don’t need to be a wine expert to join in, and there will be plenty of time to taste, chat and answer questions. So, if you’re bored, looking for an escape, or just looking for your new favourite wine, why not join us.
It will be very relaxed, so you can pop in or out as you want, skip sessions, it is totally up to you, but whatever you choose, it will be good fun, so hopefully we’ll see you on Zoom soon!!!
