NEW #TWSTaste [11th July]: Wine Champs!
#3

We’re set up on the wild west coast of Scotland with cottage pie in the oven and already started on the white I’m afraid


#4

I’m not sure if my taste buds can take it after that half :wink:


#5

I should be drinking water, but wine is … Trippier :wink:


#6

I’m getting Kaned


#7

Here with Mr JayKay and the tension is palpable. TWS Fino sherry to calm the first half nerves. Now ready to get serious.


#8

Evening all :slight_smile: This is going to test my capacity for multi-tasking to its admittedly rather slender limits… but can’t wait to see what people think of our bottled Champions!


#9

Big hello from Brighton :wave: Only Inbar here today, as the girl and the husband will be glued to the screen once more, once he finished washing the dishes and she finishes ‘face-timing’ (or whatever it’s called) her friend.
Although I don’t mind football- I LOVE wine, so I’ll be here throughout! :smiley:


#10

Evening everyone! I’m here, having tried (and failed!) to watch much of the first half because my nerves are shot!

I also just had a Wifi meltdown, hence the topic starting a little late - but we’re here now! Who’s got the wines open already?

@Ewan is going to post some handy facts about the wines in five minutes or so, so chat amongst yourselves! :smiley:


#11

We started on the white, and had it with delicious veggie (the girl is veggie) Massaman curry. Good combo, I must say! :ok_hand::star_struck:


#12

Hello all. I’m here with daughter (also a member ) and husband. Footie on in the background. GV in everyone’s glass.


#13

Valpolicella is breathing, Grüner’s resting in the fridge. Match on in the background, finishing up dinner!


#14

Hello from The Duke of Cornwall hotel, Plymouth. I can hear the cheers from here!


#15

Ahhh, Plymouth! Lovely place… :smiley:


#16

Does Ripasso need decanting?


#17

Had a quick glass of red with a burger earlier. Very nice.


#18

I say not essential but certainly wouldn’t hurt! :slight_smile:


#19

Wouldn’t harm it


#20

Nope it’s already great !
