July Meeting

  The Group, together with the other LALG wine groups, participated in the Letchworth Festival wine tasting evening held at the Broadway Hotel on Friday 2 July.

A comprehensive selection of wines was available as Australian commercial enterprises were also offering some of their best wines for tasting. Carolyn offered some excellent South African wines whilst John Raines conducted a ―Find the Champagne‖ blind tasting competition. Surprisingly, very few people were able to select the real thing, many choosing a Wolf Blass sparkling wine. Two winners eventually emerged, Sheila Mellish and Tom Milliken, with Tom winning the prize of a meal for two at the Broadway Hotel, resulting from a draw taken with their winning entries. Quite a successful and entertaining evening, thanks to the many members of the wine groups who attended.
