Starting at 10am, we allowed ourselves a maximum of 3 hours to work our way through the bottles, with a personal spittoon, a glass and a tasting sheet in hand. It is essential to spit samples away at these events to stand a chance of surviving. It took us just over 2 hours to complete the exercise, following guidelines for social distancing and other Covid considerations. We found some stunning new wines that we will progressively add to the portfolio in the shop. We also reconfirmed some previous decisions, with the opportunity to taste wines we have already selected and stock in the shop.
A big thank you to Richard, Rebekah and Bekah for pulling the event together and inviting us over. It was well worth the time, albeit not for the fainthearted taster!
