First Wine Tasting of the new Season – September 2017

by Rosemary Sheppard

The first meeting of the Wine Tasting Group after the summer break took place on Thursday, 14th September at the Bar Mediterráneo in Teulada.  79 members, including 13 people new to the Group, gathered to taste seven different wines offered by our old friend Vicent Monfort who was presenting wines from different bodegas in the Montsant region (Montsant DO) in Catalonia: two whites, a rosado and four reds.  Judging by the number of people queuing up to place orders at the end of the proceedings, these all proved to be very acceptable and everyone had a most enjoyable evening.  In fact, Vicent has since sent an email saying that he received many satisfactory compliments of how much people enjoyed the wine tasting and also for the quality and the presentation of the wines.

It was certainly a pleasure to see everyone again at the start of the new season and we look forward to the next meeting in October.  Our thanks go not only to Vicent for bringing us such a good selection of wines, but also to Pat and Brian Clarke for organising such a pleasant evening once again.
