Dear Members - HNY to you all!
Our first Corks ‘n’ Forks event for the year will be a tasting/tour in the seated comfort of the Pioneers Room on Thursday 27 February at 6pm with the working title ‘An Iberian Jaunt’. Given Iberia includes for vinous purposes not only Spain and Portugal but their respective territories of the Canary Islands, Azores, and Madeira, it should be an interesting evening.
The tasting/tour will be hosted by Ian/Ches Cook from Five Way Cellars in Paddington, who’ll also be supplying the 12 or so wines for tasting. They’ll be served in brackets accompanied by small food portions specially prepared by the Club’s Chef and his team to complement the wines. Full details of the wines, ports and sherries and the matching menu will be available closer to the event.
The cost is a bargain $100 per head. To make a booking please contact Steve Wood from the Club’s Events Team on 8273 2320 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please also mark in your diaries the following dates for Corks ‘n’ Forks events. There’ll be others, and we’ll keep you posted.
Tasting/tours - 27 February, 2 April, 20 August and 8 October.
Dinners – 22 May (Theme tba), 14 July (Bastille) and 27 November (Henschke).
As indicated, we’re thinking about what other things Corks ‘n’ Forks might do this year. Suggestions so far include weekends away, a ‘Festa Italiana’ dinner, and a vinous trip to WA’s Margaret River region on the ‘Indian Pacific’. If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions, then please let us know. Committee members’ names and email addresses are at the foot of this email.
We’d also be very interested to hear from anyone who would like to join the committee. It won’t take much of your time, and if you’re into food and wine I reckon you’ll enjoy it.
We look forward to seeing you at one or more of the above events.
Thanks and regards
For the Corks ‘n’ Forks Committee
