December 2012

The December meeting traditionally features our Fine Wines evening and this year the selection was a joint effort by Robin Boar and John Raines.

John selected a Prosecco for a fizzy start to the evening followed by a Riesling and our first ever tasting of a wine from Saint Mont in the Pyrenees.

Robin had raided his wine collection so we were very lucky to be able to taste some relatively rare reds from France, Spain and Australia. Robin also selected some cheeses to accompany the wines and Rob Hailstone provided some superb homemade bread.

All in all, an excellent start to the Christmas season.
