The first Café Moka Wine Night was a great success. Before the evening started I didn't really know how much tapas Kevin (owner/chef of Moka) would supply with the wines, but in fact the food was not only delicious but there was also enough for your supper. Consequently no-one needed to eat before or after and therefore the £30 ticket basically got them dinner as well as a tutored wine night! I was extremely pleased with the very encouraging feedback so thank you all to those who attended - it was great fun.
These nights are continuing on the last Thursday of each month and we're now taking bookings for the next two evenings, which will be as follows:
Thursday 31st May - A Vinous Tour of Portugal
Thursday 28th June - Riesling Night
The themes were picked from requests by various people over the last year or so on my courses. As usual, there will be six quality wines matched to tapas dishes and the evenings are a snip at £30 a ticket.
Places will go quite quickly (both nights are already half full), so please let me know asap if you would like to come to either or both of the nights. Kevin will also be taking bookings in Moka.
I look forward to seeing some of you there, this month or next.
