We held a tasting event on Friday 27th May – for the first time in nearly 3 years. There were four wines and four beers to sample, and a hamper of goodies to keep everyone going.
The False Bay Chenin Blanc and the Le Fou Pinot Noir definitely edged the wines, and in the beers, Downton Dream and Honey Blonde scored well. The trout pâté is always well received (“creamiest, loveliest and tastiest”) with the new pork pies and vegetarian sausage rolls close behind. Apple juice (“delicious and crisp”), tomatoes (“excellent”) and the fig relish (“would make a lovely Christmas present”) all did well too.
Our thanks to the many helpers, not least Julie and Sue for their valuable experience in setting up, our terrific teens, Alex, Georgina and Barnaby for their devotion to duty on the night, and David, our sommelier and tireless fetcher and carrier.
