Previous Meetings, 2022/23

Here you can find a recap of our tastings for this season. Maybe you might like to join us next time.

2nd December 2022 – Cheeses (and Saucisson) from Cheddar Deli, with wines paired by Charlie Charter

For our special Christmas meeting, Charlie Carter led us through a tasting focused on the key elements of food and wine pairing. He matched a variety of wines to a bespoke platter of cheesesfrom local retailer Cheddar Deli, on Northfields Avenue, and taking us through a range of tastes, textures, and terroir.

4th November – The Jura region of France, with Lee Isaacs

For our November meeting, we ended up with a last minut change of speaker, but Lee Isaacs rose to the challenge, and took us through a nubmer of wines from the lesser celebrated, but increasingly popular, Jura wine region in France. It’s no secret that Jura has a long tradition of making wines that aren’t always the most consumer friendly. There are many factors contributing to the recent changing of the guard, however. These includes an influx of young international winemakers that have descended on the region, breathing new life into these traditional styles, and experimenting with the indigenous grape varieties.

7th October 2022 – An English (and maybe Welsh!) selection with Will Parker

We were delighted to welcome back Will Parker, with an update on English wines to kick off our 2022-23 season. While South East England featured prominently there are vineyards much further afield including in Scotland! Will showcased some of the various styles from England (home to over 95% of the production) and also one from Wales.
