2010 Circle of Wine Writers Christmas Party

The Circle of Wine Writers had a great Christmas party on December 8th courtesy of Wine of Argentina.

The Circle of Wine Writers had a great Christmas party last night courtesy of Wine of Argentina. We were allowed to hold it in the magnificent Argentine Residence right on the northern end of Belgrave Square. This was a particularly special occasion for the Circle as it marks our 50th anninversary since the organisation was founded by Cyril Ray back in 1960. The party also saw the first copies of the celebratory issue of Circle Update, the Circle's newsletter, marking both the 50th anniversary but also the 100th edition.    

During his speech Minister Osvaldo Marsico announced that the 17th April 2011 will be International Malbec day with events being held in Mendoza, New York and London. Steven Spurrier, president of the Circle, replied.

Wines of Argentina had organised 32 wines for use to taste and enjoy – sparkling, white, rosé, reds and some sweet wines. The delicious nibbles came from Casa Malevo, a new Argentine restaurant in London run by Diego Jacquet. 

Many thanks to Wines of Argentina, the staff of the Argentine Residence, all who supplied the wine and Casa Malevo.
