Wine tasting plus…

Having been cancelled last year due to the pandemic, our 25th anniversary wine tasting took place at  on 3rd December 2021, at the beautiful Merchant Taylors’ Hall, York. Dr Stuart Calder led us through a tasting of seven different wines, all of which were very good: his presentation was an excellent mix of entertaining and instructive, and everyone felt more discerning by the end of the evening.

An evening in two parts, we preceded the wine tasting with memories of our late Patron, Victoria Wood shared by Jasper Rees, her authorised biographer. His knowledge was unmatchable, and his insights into the genius which Victoria Wood was were fascinating. She will ever be considered a great loss, having died much too young, and with many projects still to develop.
