Some 65 people enjoyed a leisurely meander through France at a French Wine Tasting evening in the village hall on 28th October. Some old favourites were on the menu, although wine guru Paul Boyle also introduced us to some different varieties such as Picpoul de Pinet from the Languedoc region.
The wines were accompanied by a variety of ‘nibbles’, such as prawns, cheeses, olives and saucisson, to demonstrate how wine varies with food.
Paul was an interesting and knowledgeable speaker, never lapsing into ‘wine speak’ so those of us who just like wine, rather than worship it, were never lost.
The event raised over £850 for the Village Hall.
