Foodie tasting and wine event

Hi All, My friend Kelly has a meetup group in London and she is hosting a wine and food tasting event in Bath next saturday. If you're interested the details are below and contact her directly. Sotti Sotti venue is in Bath on North Parade.

Hello! There's a London wine meetup group that has arranged an exclusive tasting menu with Sotti Sotti. If you don't know it, it's an Italian restaurant, and it's voted the best restaurant in Bath, on Trip Advisor. This is a chance to share lots of dishes and try 8 different wines with people who love good food and wine.

Kelly, the organiser, has won the International Wine challenge, Wine Educator of the Year, and is going to teach us about the wines. And the best part is... we're only paying for the food and wine. As it's part of travel trip for their meetup, Kelly has offered our meetup the organising of the menu and the tasting for free!!!!

As the items on the menu are not regular menu items, Sotti Sotti has asked her to confirm how many will be coming asap (ideally by Monday - Wednesday latest). If you would like to join us, you will need to send £80 either via Bank Transfer or PayPal. Once you've confirmed, your spot is transferable to a friend, however, it's not refundable.

Please email Kelly on [masked] for more information. You can see their meetup here - www.meetup.com/tastour or visit their main website http://www.tastour.com/

You can rsvp on meetup, but your spot is not confirmed until payment is made.

There are only 6 places available. We'll be joining a group of 9 'taste adventures'

Saturday 1st December

We'll meet at the restaurant at 8:45pm. The meal will end around 11.

Everyone will receive a few taste of each of the following.

And there will be nearly a bottle of fine wine each.

    Hello! Super psyched to have Aisha joining us. And to try this tasty menu! I've had a few wines special ordered: The new trend in Italian Whites is Pecorino... no it's not a cheese!!! And for reds seek out Aglianico (only if you like your wines like Pamela Anderson - full bodied and silky smooth) I'm not sure if the restaurant will let me book any latecomers, but always worth emailing to double check. Cheers, Kelly

      This is not going to be a stuffy wine tasting, it's all about fun and teaching you how to buy Italian Wines you like.

    Hello! Big thanks to Steve for helping out on this. I just spoke to Antonio from Sotto Sotto, who said he'd let me have till Wednesday. If we have 2 more pay, than that will mean we will have the whole private room (so more could join later in the week, if there is room) If you're keen to come, please email me on [masked]
