Do you enjoy wine and do you think wine can be culture that brings people together

Of course. Through the years I have maintained a tradition of buying one or two special bottles to help celebrate special occasions with friends and family and that has definitely made those moments extra special and memorable.

Do you have any experience in wine tasting ? Have you ever participated to a blind tasting ?

I have been to formal wine tastings e.g. at wine merchants. I have also hosted several informal tastings. Never done a blind tasting but I think its a good idea as you can rid yourself of preconceptions and biases.

Have you acquired any particular knowledge about wine production ?

Only though reading books on wine. I have a reasonable collection. Recently bought Jancis Robinson's "The Great Wine Book" from 1982, its an interesting and intelligent book.

What are the geateast factors that you are looking for for in wine (aromas, scent, velvety feeling, depth, lingering taste, etc..)

Obviously all of the above contribute to a great wine, the overriding factors for me seem to be a purity of expression of the grape varieties combined with a harmonious balance of acidity tannin fruit etc


Hi I moved to Nottingham 3 years ago and have been involved in various social groups. I have been passionate about wine since sharing digs with some French students back in my university days.

What Rob S. is saying about this Meetup Group

Just the sort of thing I was looking for. Bring on the next tasting!
