I’ll be there with bells on! Looking forward! :clinking_glasses::blush:


#43

Will probably tune in at half-time depending on what is happening, my other half not interested in the match and might well invite a friend round. Have the two bottles at the ready. My feeling was I would be still interested reading the comments even if unable to contribute live however.


#44

Beer and nibbles first half

Wine tasting half-time

Finish bottles extra time

Large whisky for penalties

Champagne?

Quite a party!


#45

We are defo tasting & watching, it’s gunna be a blast :sunglasses:


#46

Disastrously I find myself committed to a work dinner tomorrow evening, and will miss both England’s semifinal and the TWS Taste. Seriously bad planning on my part :sob:

Will catch up with the game, everyone’s tasting notes and a glass of something to soothe my anxiety later in the evening.

Luckily I am very familiar with both wines being tasted - you’re in for a very pleasant evening with both, which will only be bettered by a resounding win for England in Moscow. :soccer:

I’m a bit surprised this is planned for the same night as TWS fine wine tasting in Guildford, and which now is also the night of the WC semi-final.
I couldn’t get tickets for the last event in Guildford so of course rushed to book quickly this time, and subsequently feel a bit conflicted about it. No refunds possible, not surprising I suppose, and I appreciate the start time has been advanced to allow more tasting time before the footie but it all seems a bit unfortunate. I’ll have to start early and go for speed-tasting, but this may not be the ideal way to approach fine wines!
Hope it will be fun and please say hello any other community members who are there.


#48

Just to confirm - we’ll be starting the Live tasting thread as soon as it’s half time! :slight_smile:

I’ll post the link to it here as soon as it’s up… :soccer::wine_glass::crossed_fingers:

Hi Laura - can you tell me where on the website I’ll find the link to tonight’s online tasting, please? I’m relatively new to this, and find the website a bit confusing . . . With thanks, David


#50

Are we saying 7.45pm rather than 8pm start?


#51

Hiya @David_B - no problem at all! :smiley: It took me a while to get used to things too. I’ll post a link here on this topic around 7.45pm - but you’ll also find it on the Community homepage from then too - it’s going to be a topic called “LIVE: #TWSTaste - Wine Champs”.

@Inbar We’ll still start the actual tasting from 8pm - I just wanted to put the topic live a bit earlier so we can introduce ourselves, have a chat about the football etc. :blush:


#52

Already started the white, sorry a bit early but unlikely to polish off two bottles in the first half.


#53

Thanks Laura - much appreciated. ‘See’ you at eight!


#54

Ooops - got carried away and have opened the white as soon as I got in from work, thinking it was a 7pm start :relaxed:

Will put it back in the fridge and pretend I never imbibed :wink:


#55

I’m still logging in @laura but my little boy is running a fever . I’ve got him down but he may not stay down so I may have to bow out half way through.
