We meet on the second Thursday of the month unless otherwise indicated.

Oct 14th

The Chairman's Selection £20
Nick has been interested in and bought wine for well over 50 years. In this tasting he will show good wines that are current bargains at their price point, and ends with a fascinating comparison of Guigal's Cote Rotie from the northern Rhone. The entry level wine will be compared with the premium cuvée Brune et Blonde, finishing with a rare 1978 Brune et Blonde from his cellar. This wine can be bought today for just under £200 a bottle. Taste it at SWIG!
