Members and friends enjoyed a warm summer’s evening by the Thames on Monday 8th July. This was the first event held by the Circle at this time of year, or for some time, and provided a great opportunity for people to meet up before the ‘summer recess’.
Our sponsors were Louis Latour Agencies who served four wines perfect for a warm evening – bubbles from Burgundy, a Vermentino from Banfi (congratulations to Banfi who won an award for their Tuscan red SummuS at the Wine Challenge the next evening), a delightful reserve Malbec rose from Chile and then a new release Pinot Noir from Louis Latour.
Served with the wines were a selection of delicious finger foods. All in all the wine, food and friends plus the very special venue at Farr’s offices made it a most enjoyable evening.
Thank you to Rebecca Fraser of Louis Latour Agencies and to Stephen Browett and Henry Matson of Farr Vintners for making the evening possible and for their continued support of the Circle. Thank you also to Glass & Co for providing the glasses for the event and their continued support in events.
