For our April tasting, we welcome Nick Oakley of Oakley Wine Agencies on his first visit to our Society. Oakley Wine Agencies has been trading since 1990 and specialises in importing wines from Portugal and North West Spain. Nick will be showing us wines from the Azores islands in the Atlantic Ocean and North West Spain. The wines from the Azores are absolutely superb and it will be our Society's first opportunity to taste wines from these islands. The wines from North West Spain reflect the indigenous grapes grown in this part of the country and I know this is already a favourite region for many of our members.

It's always a privilege for our Society to welcome a Master of Wine, the highest qualification in the wine world. This month we are delighted to welcome Master of Wine Jo Locke, a buyer at The Wine Society, who will be presenting to us for the first time. One of Jo's specialist regions is South Africa and she will present a range of this country's wines from The Wine Society's portfolio. Jo says that South Africa is recognised for great value for money and, increasingly, for quality. She finds it exciting because it's a re-emerging wine industry. There are a lot of bright young people working there and it's the most dynamic of the world's wine regions which she is lucky enough to visit.
