Decanter Magazine are holding a fabulous tasting of French Wine in the elegant surroundings of the Landmark Hotel. The tasting will feature wines from more than 50 top producers including 15 Cru Classe from Bordeaux and 30 'en-primeur' wines from the latest 2012 vintage. There will also be wines from Champagne, the Loire, Burgundy and the Rhone.

The tasting will take place from 11 am to 5 pm and you can turn up at any time. I am planning to get there at midday and will be doing 2 guided wine walks so that you can meet other members of the group - the first at 1pm and the second at 3pm. And afterwards I may arrange a meal somewhere nearby.

The normal ticket price is £50 but Decanter Magazine have offered a special 25% discount off one 'Grand Tasting ticket' to members of the Meetup group so you will pay just £37.50. To book your ticket go to this link:
