What's New

It's Spain comes to Lymm on the Saturday 7th at 08:00pm venue is Howard's at Maltmans Road.

Catering is a joint collaboration between Liz Waterworth & Hilary Williamson (Madame Tortilla to her friends).

Joan et moi have been doing our best for you & trying new Spanish varieties & varietals. I've been reading Hugh Johnson & Oz Clarke 2004 pocket wine books.

Due to me getting a 6 month contract to put together the wine list for an exciting new & expanding Chain of Bistro's called 'Nicholsons' (next branch opens in Altrincham Downs mid August) I have lots of new good trade contacts & can expect to get good discounts.

I hope to  source us wines from, Priorat Ribera Del Duero, Rueda, Bierzo & La Mancha who are now, due to massive investment in the late 90s, able to compete with the giants, Rioja & Herez.  

I am being constantly amazed at the quality of wines I'm tasting from Spain. I think the overall mix will of course though have to include a serious Rioja & I don't think Liz would object to a little something dryish from Jerez Joan is certainly in favour !!!  

Not sure of numbers so please can you contact me as soon as possible to confirm so I can get an idea of our budget. I'll be at the Club meeting on the 28th July so I'll collect subs then. please send them by post if you can't make it to the meeting.

I know there may be one or two new members interested but I don't seem to have saved their names in my 'address book' so hopefully you'll see this in the Newsletter.
