We look forward to welcoming back Tony Hill, Owner of Bordeaux and Beyond. Tony will take us on a "Wine Tour de France", covering many different appellations, some famous and some not so famous. Tony will give the story behind the wines and the reasons why he decided to import them. Bordeaux and Beyond are a specialist wine importer, concentrating on wines from small independent vignerons in France, not usually available elsewhere. Bordeaux and Beyond are a web based business, now in their 11th year of trading. They continue to sell only wines that they import and, more importantly, happy to drink themselves!

Our Society receives tremendous support from The Wine Society and we are very pleased to announce that their Head of Buying Pierre Mansour will present to us this month. One of Pierre's specific roles is as buyer for Spain, so it very appropriate that he'll be presenting wines from the Rioja region. The Wine Society has an excellent range of Rioja wines in its portfolio. We'll be starting with a couple of whites, then moving on to taste a range of the reds for which the region is so well known. This is definitely one not to miss!

Craig Mitchell, European Ambassador, Chateau Ste. Michelle, Washington State, USA.

Hook, RG27 9HS United Kingdom

Washington is the second largest wine producing state in the USA. So it's perhaps surprising that our Society has not had a tasting of Washington State wines in the past. We'll put that right this month as we welcome Craig Mitchell, who is European Ambassador for Chateau Ste. Michelle winery. The winery is the oldest in Washington State, initially named Ste. Michelle Vintners, but changed its name to Chateau Ste. Michelle in 1976 following the building of a French style chateau in Woodinville, just outside Seattle. The winery aims to build on old world winemaking traditions with new world innovation. There are two state-of-the-art wineries, one for red and one for white.
