What a way to start 2018!  We welcomed back one of our favourite presenters Nicholas Corfe of Go Brazil Wines.  Nicholas has way of keeping us all under control in the most charming and amusing way.  

 

We had a good turnout for 'dry' January, of around 40 - though the noise made indicated more like 60 or so!  The excellent buffet was bought by Martin Jones and all the preparation/clearing up was done by Paul & Julie Phillips.  Many thanks to all of you and to all of those who helped with the general clearing up.

 

Nicholas presented some excellent wines, representing great value and interest - all available from www.gobrazilwines.com

I was delighted that so many of you decided to buy a few bottles of his wine.  It really is a pleasure to invite wine makers/suppliers of wines from all over the world, not just the safe/familiar areas.  

 

With that in mind, I'm looking forward enormously to the Peruvian tasting in March.
