Many thanks for the tasting yesterday evening. All the group enjoyed the informal friendly approach and appreciated the answers to our varied list of questions. It was clear you have a wide knowledge of the subject and real experience in many aspects of the wine industry'

Many thanks for your wine tasting event at our (Smith & Williamson) offices last Thursday. You did it with a different approach and I learned more from that than the good number I have been to over the years and I came away feeling I had learned a few things to take away with me.
