Members of the Curry Rivel & District Twinning Association again showed their mettle by braving a rainy evening to attend the organisation's recent wine tasting evening.

Some 40 people, both members and guests, joined in the annual event which this time took place on Friday 22 November. As usual, participants savoured six types of wine from various countries. Three whites and three reds were sampled, coming from Portugal, Italy, Spain (two of them!) and South Africa as well as a Greek dessert wine. Plates of delicious home-made sweet and savoury canap├ęs were also available.
In order to chat to old friends and meet some new faces members and guests changed seats from time to time. Light-hearted quiz sheets were provided inviting everyone to guess the country of origin, type of grape and aromas and flavours, which produced some amusing, witty and at times "innovative" answers.
The successful evening, together with a raffle, helped the Twinning Association in its fundraising efforts.
