The Decanter Fine Wine Encounter is THE consumer tasting of the year. Around 100 premium wineries from all over the world will be exhibiting their wines and the standard of wines on tasting is always very high. This event has been held in the elegant surroundings of the Landmark Hotel every year for the last 15 years and it's always the vinous highlight of the year! For more information on the wineries attending see: http://www.amiando.com/decanterfinewineencounter2013.html
The tasting lasts from 11 to 5 and you can get there at any time. I will be doing 2 guided wine walks so that you can meet other members of the group - at 1pm and 3pm.
The normal ticket price is £55 but for Sunday 17th only I have negotiated a special 25% discount with the organisers which brings the price down to £41.25.
If you would like to attend RSVP, but then you must buy your own ticket. Go to: http://www.amiando.com/decanterfinewineencounter2013.html
Select the number of tickets you require then at the bottom of the page Click on 'click here to enter a promotional code', enter the code 'Sundaymeetup' and then 'Next step' and then proceed to pay.
There are also 3 different Masterclasses scheduled during the day but these cost £95 each and no discount has been offered. If you would like to attend one of the Masterclasses you will need to book your ticket when you book the for the Fine Wine Encounter.
Please note that I have set a limit of 30 places for the Meetup group but I have not reserved places with Decanter - in other words tickets are subject to availability, so if you RSVP 'Yes' you will need to buy your ticket straight away to be sure of a place.
