Next Meeting

Californian Fine Wines (with a brief detour to Washington State), with Robbie Rugman

1st February 2019

For our February tasting, we will be sampling a collection of fine wines from the USA, predominantly from California. From the cool regions of Russian River and the Central Coast, we will sample floral, balanced Pinot Gris and deeply perfumed Pinot Noirs from the MacMurray Ranch; followed by heavier, rewarding Cabernet Sauvignons from the Napa Valley and Sonoma County, produced by pioneer Louis M. Martini.

You will also have the opportunity to taste a Chardonnay from the Columbia Winery in Washington State. Washington’s wine region has flown under the radar, with its neighbor Oregon taking center stage as the new exciting region. Washington has amazing potential with its summer days with an average of 16-hours of sunlight, days and low rainfall, no wonder it produces wines from 16 grape varietals!

The place is St Barnabas Church Hall, Pitshanger Lane. The time is 8pm. And the cost will be £20/head.
