Wine tasting event Leicester!
Gynsill Tennis club (Anstey) hosted a wine tasting event Leicester as part of their annual social calendar. Members and their friends and family were invited to come along to the informal tasting held at the club on a Saturday evening in December.
Kilo provided a range of Sparkling, whites, rose and reds for people to sample whilst tucking into some accompanying nibbles including Italian meats and cheeses brought back from our recent trip to the Veneto region. The majority of members stayed for the duration of the evening, chatting with friends whilst enjoying sampling our selection wines.
Members stated that they had really enjoyed the informal atmosphere and the opportunity to get to know some of the people that previously they had only see playing down at the club. One or two people left at the end ‘well-oiled’ with smiles on their faces having arranged for lifts home or booking taxis. There was a good cross section of age groups from the adult members with many bringing partners and friends from other villages around Leicestershire.
The event was very well received, and enjoyed by all that attended, with a number of people placing orders to enjoy over the Christmas holidays and hoping for us to hold similar events in the future. The Primitivo, Nero D’Avola, and Duo again proved to be popular favourites with the red drinkers whilst the IPrandi Soave and Canella Prosecco were raved about by those preferring a white.
More wine tasting in 2017!
With the approval of the club committee we hope to be holding another event closer to the summer and look forward to seeing some new faces there next time.
We would like to thank all those that supported the event and assisted in raising some funds toward the clubs upkeep.
