The Curry Rivel & District Twinning Association held a wine tasting evening in the Village Hall on Friday 24 November. Over 30 people — both members and non-members — joined in the fun, tasting six types of wine from various parts of the world. Among them were two whites, a rosé and three reds from France, Italy, Chile, Australia and even India. A range of fabulous home-made canapés was also provided.
During the evening everyone changed seats in order to chat to others and as the wine flowed, so did the conversation. There was also a lighthearted quiz sheet asking participants to guess the country of origin, type of grape and aromas and flavours, which produced some entertaining responses. All in all it was a successful evening, which together with a raffle, raised valuable funds for the Twinning Association.
