Before the tasting there were a few formalities and committee members to be elected as well as the destination for the annual club trip to be decided, Surprisingly, this took longer than normal (about 45 minutes), especially as all the above wines were sitting in the corner waiting to be tasted!! The most important outcome being that Tuscany being selected as the destination for the 2012 trip.
