I am delighted to present the current quarter 2018 programme. Your committee and a number of members have worked very hard to bring you a superb selection of interesting and innovative wine tastings and themed dinners. We always try to introduce wines that one rarely, if ever has the opportunity to drink.

The Society will be celebrating its 85th anniversary this quarter, and we have arranged a special celebration dinner, in recollection of Andre Simon’s inaugural meal.  Do please make a special effort to come if you possibly can.

There will also be a social event with canapés and wine following our AGM.

There is a great variety of wine tasting opportunities:

A tour of Spain covering nine regions

A tour of Italy covering ten regions

Wines across the Margaux Appellation

Mature French Wines

Mature Bordeaux wine with dinner

We always welcome comments, whether good or critical to keep us on our toes and would encourage members to propose new ideas for tastings and dinners.

Finally, on behalf of your committee we thank you for your continued support.

Jeffrey Benson – Chairman London Branch
