We were indeed fortunate that winemaker Hugh Liddell was at Cottonworth to host our Society’s visit. The time in the vineyard was informative, the wines were very good and there was plenty of food for lunch. Overall, an excellent visit which was much enjoyed by all present.
We had another full house this month as we welcomed Leah Seresin, Brand Ambassador for Seresin Winery in New Zealand.
It was a delightful evening as Leah took us through a tasting of 8 wines from the Seresin portfolio.
Highlight for many was the pinot noir!
Our largest attendance for many years enjoyed a splendid tasting of wines from South Africa.
Master of Wine Jo Locke from The Wine Society showed us a mix of traditional and innovative wines, delivered in an interesting and informal style.
Booking is now open for our summer event on Sunday 11th August. We have organised an exclusive, private visit to the award winning Cottonworth vineyard, set in Hampshire’s beautiful Test Valley near Andover. Click the link below for more details, including how to book.
Over 50 members and guests gathered for a splendid evening and weekend at Donnington Valley Hotel & Spa. Enotria’s Pierre Woodford introduced a lovely selection of wines from Italy. The atmosphere was relaxed and enjoyable – many thought it was our best ever weekend at Donnington!
