A lovely evening with the friendly Jonathan in the chair and an excellent introduction to English wines by Clive Barlow MW. Clive's presentation was clear and well illustrated without being over-complicated The wines were of very good quality and well selected to show the wide range of styles available. Jonathan and Clive are very good advocates for the exciting new English wine scene.

Informative and fun. A nice selection of six wine samples arrived well-presented in the post. Would recommend the experience.
Christine Moses - April 30th
I have learned so much about English wines in this session. The format works really well, even for wine novices like me - the samples are generous and arrive well-packaged, and with notes, a couple of days before. Highly recommend!

An absolutely fantastic evening. Really informative and Clive was brilliant. The wines came beautifully presented in glass test tubes and it was great to meet other interested people on the tasting too. Hopefully there will be some different wines to try next time? It would be perfect for a private group / work event too!
