PAWS – June Report

paws31 members and 3 visitors attended our June meeting where Piers Graham from Fintry Wines provided us with a selection of 9 wines for our Wine Tasting.  Piers has been in the business for 10 years originally setting up on Mersea but recently he has moved to Colchester. He currently has 650 wines available to buy online on his website, the most expensive being Penfold Grange at a cost of £175 a bottle (and he has 17 of these). The wines he had selected for us to try came from lesser known areas of France, mainly from the South West Costal areas, and from the Vin De Pays d’oc region, more commonly known as French Country Wines and very nice they were too hic!

Next month, as it’s the peak summer month August, there is no meeting but we will be back to normal on September 28th when we will be “Hop Picking at Horseman’s Den” with Barbara Faulkner returning once again.  As usual we meet at 7.30pm in Peldon Village Hall, Church Road, Peldon. Membership is currently closed but visitors are very welcome at a cost of £3.50 and a waiting list is in operation.

In the meantime we have our annual croquet night on the 13th July and a visit to the Town Hall and Hollytrees on the 16th August to look forward to.
