Wine Tasting with Claire Poncet

6th May 2018

I hope you will join us for a wine tasting, to raise funds for The Almshouses,in the Bradbury Room on Sunday 6th May at 12 00.

Last year Claire Poncet gave a most enjoyable, informative and amusing wine tasting in the Bradbury Room of red white and rose wines from the Bordeaux and Entre Deux Mers regions of France.

The Poncet family have been producing wine on their small family estate (10 ha) for many years. A typical Bordeaux, they grow Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot which they blend to make a very decent AOC Bordeaux and Bordeaux Rose. Claire’s neighbours produce white wines.

Please come and bring your friends, though tickets will be limited due to the capacity of the Bradbury Room. Wine may be ordered directly from the producers.


Tickets are £15 to include tastings of 7 different wines accompanied by appropriate canapes.
