On line tastings
Following the success of the 'virtual' on-line wine tasting on 3rd April these will become a regular feature during the Lockdown, and have been named
'Freaky Friday Tastings'
This is a first for me - as it may be for you - but at the moment we all have to learn to do things differently!
The themes for the next few of these will be:
Friday 1st May - White and Red from Bordeaux
Friday 8th May - Matching cheese and wine
Friday 15th May - Red and White Rioja
Friday 22nd May International Chardonnay Day
Friday 29th May Riesling and Pinot Noir from Alsace
All you need to do is get hold of a bottle of each - I know they will all be different, but at least we will have the same grape varieties!
In order to join me, go to our Facebook page get your bottles out, corkscrews at the ready and join at 7pm
No experience is necessary, so if you’ve always wanted to try a wine tasting but never got round to it this is your chance, from the comfort of your own home! Regular Milton Keynes Wine School attendees are of course most welcome and it will be nice to “see” you all (don’t worry I can’t actually see you, so feel free to wear whatever you like!)
If you want to “drink along” please get hold of a bottle of what we're tasting each week . I will update the wines I am going to be tasting on Facebook and also on this website.
If you want to go out and find these type of wines, please follow Government advice, add them to your usual shopping trip and don't make a specific journey. Better still if you can order them for home delivery.
You will obviously also need some wine glasses and I’d recommend some water. Why not make an evening of it and have some nibbles or perhaps some cheese and biscuits as well?
I expect the session to be between 45-60 minutes depending on how many questions I get.
Best of all, these sessions are absolutely FREE. However, you are most welcome to make a nominal donation using the link below. I have decided to donate proceeds to National Emergencies Trust
In the meantime, I hope you all are keeping well, in this brave new on-line world we all now inhabit..........
Take care, keep drinking wine responsibly and I hope you and your family can join me at 7pm on Fridays. Bring some (virtual) friends too!
