On Thursday 29th August 2019, R&H Wines treated us to a selection of fine wines with the perfect cheeses to accompany them. The event was hosted at City Wine Bar and was sponsored by Weselyan.
Wine 1 - Le Moss
A prosecco with hints of apple, pear and freshly baked bread. Light, crisp and organic.
Wine 2 - Maisas Branco
A Portuguese white which is handpicked and organic. This acidic blend of 3 grapes really makes the mouth water.
Wine 3 - Fabrizio Vella
A natural white indigenous to Sicily. An almost buttery taste made with a grape grown on volcanic soil.
Wine 4 - Felicette Grenache Blanc
An organic white from France with tropical flavours of mango and lychee.
Wine 5 - Fabrizio Bella Rosso Organico
An oaky Sicilian with dark chocolate notes.
Wine 6 - Vivir Sin Dormir
A Spanish red roughly translated to "to live without sleeping" is oaked and robust. The grapes are still occasionally pressed by foot.
Wine 7 - Odfjell Armador
A Chilean grape by a Norwegian winemkaer which tastes of liquorice and blackberry.
Wine 8 - Porto Niepoort
Three years in a wooden barrel results in this sweet port which is wine with added brandy!
We would like to thank everyone who attended this event and a special thanks to R&H Wines, City Wine Bar and Weselyan.
On 25th July 2019 the MWLD hosted a Gin & Beer Tasting event at Love Lane Brewery.
We would like to say a big thanks to 7 Harrington Street for sponsoring our event.
Guests arrived at 6pm and received tokens for 2 drinks and 3 beer or gin tasters. We had an introduction to the brewery just before 7pm which followed with a tour of the Gin Distillery and Brewery. The tour was informative as we discovered the history of Love Lane beers and their brewery.
After discovering how their beer is made, each guest took part in either a gin/beer tasting session. There was also a fun filled quiz following the tour and guests were provided with clues along the way.
At 8pm guests received proper chip butties, spinach, chickpea and sweet potato sausage rolls and buttermilk fried chicken with fried onion mayo. We then finished off the night announcing the winner of the Quiz, Joshua Baker who received a Love Lane Brewery voucher entitling him to a 3 course meal, gin or beer tasting session and a tour of the brewery for two people. There were also smaller prizes of prosecco, free drinks and free tasters given away by a draw to some luckily winners.
Thanks to all those who attended this fantastic event!
We held our Welcome Event on 27th June 2019 at City Wine Bar.
The Committee would like to thank everyone who attended the event which gave an opportunity for people to join WLD and for existing members to renew their membership. The guests enjoyed glasses of prosecco accompanied by mini burgers, onion bhajis and arancini balls. We would like to thank City Wine Bar for being a brilliant venue.
