Last night the Lady Skillers went to the Jurys Inn where the Manchester Wine School had put on a wine taster for us. We each had 6 glasses laid out with tasting notes about each of the wines, which included three white and three red...plus lots of yummy meat, cheese and crackers. One of the first things our host Lara was offer us a spittoon which of course everyone had a laugh at. I think we can agreed that we all wanted to drink the wine instead of spitting it out!
We were told what to look for in the wine i.e. if it clung to the glass when swirled then it had "legs" and that relates to the alcohol content!! After looking and sniffing our wine we then got to slurp (obviously the bit we were all waiting for)
I think you'll forgive this post for being rather short, as after 6 glasses of wine plus the after drinks in the pub, things do get a bit hazy!! A good night had by all anyway and I'd definitely give wine tasting another go.....perhaps tonight!
