Virtual Tasting #9 - Tuesday 14 July 2020

Post by AHB » 20:51 Fri 10 Jul 2020

If I recall a conversation I had with Mike last week, he's not working in London this week and may not be in a position to host us for another call - but that doesn't stop us from having a Virtual Tasting hosted by someone else - which can be me next week since I needed to buy a month's Zoom license to be able to run the Sherry Tasting..

Who is interested in taking part? The theme is "Any kind of Port or other fortified wine - sighted".

Yes please.

Blind or sighted? If blind I’ll make a guessing page.

Sighted. I find the blind and guessing versions for a Zoom tasting are more hard work than they are worth. I'd rather just go round the people on the call and see what each person is drinking.

Oops. I've just realised I'm already on a wine tasting from 8pm-9.30pm on Tuesday.

Never mind. I'll set this tasting up to be able to continue when I drop off a few minutes before 8pm and then rejoin a little after 9.30pm.

I have a different wine tasting on Wednesday - 2009 vs 2010 Bordeaux. It's a tough life being retired.

Both of which are perfectly valid suggestions, but ones which I will decline. We're in a rhythym of Tuesday night is Port night and I want to keep to that rhythym.

Whereabouts Ian? If you are near Weymouth you should pop by for a cup of tea/glass of port.
