Wine Tasting and Appreciation
The February meeting took us away from our usual venue of the Hand Hotel, instead we ventured just along the road to Gales Wine Bar. Where we were beautifully hosted and educated, in all that is good about wine, by Pip Gale. We tasted our way through six different wines from aromatic whites to full bodied reds and everything in between.
Pip’s knowledge of wine is endless, we are so lucky in Llangollen to have so many very talented, knowledgeable, creative and enthusiastic people to draw on. The Valley Girls WI in it’s (now) two year history has very rarely needed to venture outside of the Dee Valley (or even outside of Llangollen to be totally honest!) when sourcing experts.
We never want to become stale so we do throw the net a bit wider at times, however we have a wealth of talent in our little town (Llangollen) and the surrounding Dee Valley and there are times when it’s only right to celebrate this, so we’d like to say a huge thank you to Pip and his team at the Wine Bar.
Valley Girls WI would certainly recommended that any other local groups should make use of this excellent resource, the wine tasting evening was an absolute blast! Perfect for corporate group events, private parties or any other excuse to socialise.
And it’s not just wine, Gales Wine Bar has a fantastic menu and what’s more you can get yourself a lovely cuppa too!
