IEBA has come a long way since Hugh Gallagher gave his first IEBA wine tasting in 1997. Twenty years on it is only fitting that a 20th anniversary tasting should be somewhat special.
What better way to mark the growth and development of IEBA than by selecting a wine from each country where IEBA has a local branch?
The lineup will therefore be wines related to Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Nordic Region, Switzerland, UK and USA. (We indicate "related to” since two of the locations will feature wines from countries with historical connections to two of the countries listed.) Finally, to complete our usual practice of offering ten wines, there will be a "joker round” with one country featuring twice, just to make predictions a little less easy. A fine sample of best burgundy will be awarded to those who correctly name the provenance of all the wines in the right order. Don’t miss this alternative IEBA educational opportunity!
IEBA wine tastings are informal occasions for enjoyment and networking, without missing the chance to drink a toast (or two) to IEBA’s last 20 years of solid progress.
As always, registration is on a first come first served basis given the limitation on numbers. Participants from IEBA branches outside the UK are more than welcome.
We have had to increase the fee for the wine tasting slightly to £38 per person, but we hope that you will agree that it still represents extraordinarily good value as it includes Hugh's pâtés, terrines, cheeses, breads and fruit from Belgium in addition to the 10 wines.
