Tasting Report December 2023

Tasting Report December  2023

We did not receive the normal report for this event so it is published as supplied by Tim Fawle.

Our December tasting is traditionally hosted by the President who has chosen the wines. We had 57 members due to attend this tasting but unfortunately several members were unable to participate due to illness issues.

However, 49 members attended in a convivial and relaxed atmosphere at A Bordo Club Nautica, Javea There was no formal wine scoring and the wines selected were some that we had tasted before and some of the President’s favourites.  There was also an interesting wine activity that was hosted by Sandy Fawle throughout the evening which ensured that every table participated to test their wine knowledge. The  winning tables received a prize of a bottle of wine.
