Smsloes0002.JPGAn evening of wine tasting, cocktail mixing, eating and learning about the best things to drink this autumn, with expert drinks writer Victoria Moore.  Come and join us!

You’ll be welcomed with a Cava-Calva aperitif and then we’ll taste and compare three different chenin blancs and learn all about this grape.  Moving on there will be a selection of sloe gins to compare and of course tips for making your own, plus Victoria’s favourite cocktail using the purple infusion – sloe gin sours.

Victoria.jpgVictoria Moore has been writing about drinking since 1998 when she began a column in the New Statesman.  She is now the wine writer for the Telegraph, and previously wrote the wine column for the Guardian Saturday Weekend magazine.  Her bestselling book – How to Drink – is a hugely readable and beautiful handbook that aims to inform, entertain and ensure you are never without the perfect drink for every occasion.
