Sustainable British Wine Tasting - 3th September 2021
was a great joy to be able to hold the deferred fund raising wine
tasting for ‘Friends of Frensham Churches’. Christine
Rasmussen had chosen the theme of “Sustainable British Wine” and
guided us expertly through a range of English and Welsh organic wines
alongside a comparison to wines from our more traditional wine
producing neighbours. A blind tasting of champagne vs an
English sparkling wine came out as a 50:50 draw. We were also
helped by the generous gift of wines for the silent auction.
Congratulations to Pat Telfer in winning the most
interesting contribution. And what a fun way to raise a superb
£2,600 from the evening that will go towards supporting the
wider use of The Good Shepherd. Below you can see Christina
Rasmussen leading the tasting. And then a photo of Michael
taking the comparative tasting of Champagne vs English Sparkling
Wine particularly seriously!
