Pinot Noir of the world

Hello oenophiles


This first meet up wine tasting event will aim at discovering some of the greatest new and old world pinot noir wines. Also it will be the opportunity to get together and decide on our club organisation :

- venues : shall we find an external place where to hold the event or host it in turn as suggested ? I guess we will probably start up like hosting ourselves and then explore some other options if our club grows too big

- cost : as you all know, great wines aren't cheap. By all means, we will try to avoid purchasing wine on which there is severe speculation (like most of the Bordeaux grands crus), yet the average price for a high quality bottle in the UK is around 30£. I suggest that we share the cost of wine purchasing by asking a 20£ fee per session, with an average of 10 participants that gives 200£ to build our wine programme

- calendar : I suggest wine tasting sessions are held on a monthly basis, for instance every first friday of the month. A detailed calendar of all wine sessions shall also be proposed and put on line. I will try to put one together for our next friday session. Any suggestion of theme you would like to explore are welcome (e.g. Burgundy wine, Champagne vs sparkling, etc..)

Above : some of the wines we may taste next friday

See you next friday
