Moleside’s Wine Group
We meet every month at Steeples in Stoke d’Abernon
Led by wine specialist Trudy Welsh we are introduced to what is currently regarded as interesting in the wine trade – always with a view to learning more whilst identifying quality and value in what we drink.
Meetings in APRIL & MAY regrettably had to be cancelled.
Covid – and other pressures – were making it difficult to maintain our regular programme.
Current plans are in place to resume live tastings in JUNE – watch this space!
From time to time we have taken a wider view of our enjoyment of wine. For example back in January this year …. We tried checking out whether the right circumstances can make certain wines taste even better.
Experimenting with some Debussy – followed by a little light rock – there were some members who felt that the classical performance could be enhancing their enjoyment derived from a modest claret. But wine is a personal thing and, though everyone concentred seriously on the experiment, others were far from convinced that the music made any difference at all.
Our thanks to David Owen for his report and fine photos.
We will in future remember that when a wine really tastes brilliant there’s no harm in enjoying it there and then.
PS. As we wait for the restart of our programme, now scheduled for JUNE, we pass our thanks to Trudy Welsh and to all the enthusiastic members of the Moleside Wine Club for their patience. We look forward to news very soon of many more informative tastings.
