My last event as Chairman took us to St Botolphs Church Hall on January 28th for a wine trip around Italy, 5 fine whites and 5 fine reds; one empty and dry swill bucket on our table sets the scene (seen) for our evening.


Colin Wills from Un-Corked gave us an amazing evening, and at times, had us hanging on his every word, which seemed more prevalent as the evening went on! Not only did he explain the various wines and their characteristics, but also the customs of the various regions and the influence that their various weather pattern had shaped the vines and subsequent flavours.


35 members and guests attended and enjoyed a fabulous event, we were also delighted to have three new visitors who have are very keen to find out more about the club and future events.


I thoroughly enjoyed this event, and received many positive emails the following day.
