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.

If anyone hasn't sampled the pleasures of this wonderful wine shop then I suggest you get down there sharpish. Taste some weird and wonderful wines, munch a cracker from the big wooden table, browse some brilliant (but pricy) bottles and chat with the friendly staff. The perfect intro to any Upper Street foray.
