What we do

Reports

January 2020

Our Autumn programme started in September with a session of "Would I Lie To You!" which was followed by a very pleasing presentation by Andrew of Majestic on Eastern European wines.

In November we sampled and learned about the wines of South Western France featuring a number of indigenous and ( in some cases) nearly extinct varieties such as Courbiou and Manseng.

In early December we held our Jacob's Join before our annual Christmas Lunch at Kendal College on the 19th, where 27 of the group enjoyed a fine lunch , thanks to the skills of students and staff.

We shall start again in January with a look at some of the wines of the larger "negociants" including a wine from way back, Sichel's" Blue Nun". still in production after fifty years or more!  Remember that one, along with "Balck Tower"?
