What a night to be had! 

Members and guests began rocking up for the Hambledon Vineyard wine tasting presentation as early as 6.10p.m. in excited anticipation of a great evening ahead. 

Starting at 7.00p.m. Katrina, from Hambledon wines, thrilled and enlightened us with her expertise and knowledge of everything from growing vines to mixing wines and how Hambledon's famous gold award winning Cuvees are blended. We had tastings of Hambledon Classic Cuvee, Premiere Cuvee and Classic Cuvee Rose whilst cheese and biscuits were served to compliment the drinks. Wine flutes were readily refilled and a pair of vineyard tour tickets (donated by Hambledon) were won in the raffle.

The evening was a hooting success for both wine and non-wine drinking members and guests. Who would have thought that Hambledon vines are grown on "chalky slopes identical to the best Chardonnay areas of Champagne"?
