250 Dinners Down

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Recently I was lucky enough to be invited to speak when The Wine Society Dining Club celebrated their 250th dinner in Draper?s Hall in London.

Château Margaux

The location is splendid and the wines, which included Château Margaux 1983 and 1990, and the outstanding Pavillon Rouge 2000, were memorably magnificent. The bottles had been wisely laid down by the club en primeur when they cost very much less than they do today.

80 members and 40 guests attended and a very good time was had by us all.

Such bottles are meant to be shared and discussed among like-minded companions.

If you would like to know more about the Dining Club, you can visit their website or contact the Club Administrator by e-mail.
