Ivy at the Sampler
Incredible wine day today. First up, a remarkable tasting at The Sampler in Islington, where we got to try out the sampling machines and taste an incredible range of high end wines. More very soon when I've written my notes up. Pictured is Ivy, the Sampler's dog - a friendly border collie.
Then it was off to The Arches wine bar for a superb wine lunch, which lasted until 5.15 pm when a few of us had to slope off. Present were Ken Reich, Neal Martin, Amanda Laden, Sharon Bowman, Dan Coward and myself. Some wonderful wines - again, more later when I've written up the notes.
