Newsletter April 2021

Dear Members,

As we are now officially into Summer Time, I hope we can look forward to a nice spring and an optimistic outlook for the summer ahead. With of course some good tastings of great wines!

Our CBWS on line tasting on March 18 saw 34 members enjoying an outstanding tasting of Martúe wines from Toledo hosted by Manuel Gonzalez, a member of the family owned Bodega.

His presentation was very informative and professionally presented. I mentioned in last month’s Newsletter that we visited this bodega on our Wine trip in 2016 so it was a pleasure to reconnect with them again. Several members were not part of the 2016 visit so they were able to experience these wines. We were given the opportunity to purchase these wines at excellent prices and a large order was passed to Manuel to process.

He has kindly provided CBWS with a special online discount when you visit their website or click here  This discount is 15% off any item with Free delivery direct to your door. All you have to do is type in Javea15 which will deduct the discount for your purchase. This discount applies for at least one full year from this date.

A full report can be seen on the webpage – click here.

The Zoom tastings have been a great success as we learn and adapt to achieve a high quality and enjoyable experience for all participants .If you haven’t experienced it you should join us and see for yourselves.

Our next Zoom tasting is on Thursday April 15 starting at 18.45 CET and will feature a presentation from Past Presidents and Committee members introducing some special wines!

We will be mailing regular Zoom participants shortly but if you have not participated in one of our our tastings and would like to join us please mail me


Best Wishes for a Happy Easter!
