Default WINE CLUB MEETING - THURSDAY 3 NOVEMBER AT 8.30pm

OK, I know most members crack open a bottle earlier, but with early evening commitments etc, I thought 8.30pm would be a good time to have the first WINE CLUB MEETING!!!!

If anyone is interested - and I hope they are or I will be very lonely sat in the chatroom on my own - please come along on the night and join in the fun!

The red wine I have chosen is the CAMPO VIEJO RESERVA from Tesco, currently on offer at 5.99 (reduced from 7.99) which is a great opportunity to try this wine.

The white wine will be the ERRAZURIZ CHARDONNAY from Chile reduced from 5.99 to 4.49.

If you would like to try both, please feel free and if you have any trouble finding either of these, please let me know.

Any comments gratefully received and I look forward to seeing some of you on Thursday night!

Jane

Hi jiggy!

Saw your other post in the Tapas Bar and sorry you can't make it till later.

Any wine that is reduced is good news for me and a Reserva is even better!

See you soon,
Jane

Just a wee reminder that tomorrow is the first Wine Club Meeting!

I hope everyone has been able to get hold of the two wines without any difficulty.

Just a tip - let the Rioja breathe a little before drinking - half an hour should be fine and don't over-chill the Chardonnay.

If anyone would like to join us but hasn't bought the wines, please feel free - the more the merrier. That goes for those poor souls who have to work later as well!

I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow night!

Jane

Well I've got my Errazuriz Chardonnay.


One Tesco yesterday was out of stock but got it in another today.

And I see the Campo Vieja in stock in both stores!

Thurs at 8.30 it is!

Hi Porto, Snowy, Debs and cd!

Had to go to the Market Harborough branch of Tesco's (Express) today for essential supplies of coffee and milk and had a quick look through the wine aisles.

Was amazed to see the Campo Viejo sold out!

Any members live nearby?!!!!!:eek

Gosh, I hope the chatroom can cope with the numbers tomorrow night!

See you soon!
Jane
