History

When I told Youth Leader, Alan Millar, in 1999 about the wine tastings I'd led in Oxford he was quick to suggest that many people, including himself, were keen to learn a bit more about wine and that we should organise a similar tasting for the Young Adults of Queen's Cross and at the same time raise money for charity.  It was a "no-brainer" that the charity should be Christian Aid, given Queen's Cross' links and so our first tasting of the year is always in May, as close to Christian Aid Week as possible.

The very first tasting, back in 1999, consisted of a selection of Chardonnays from around the world, a Sauvignon Blanc, a Rioja, a Shiraz / Cabernet Sauvignon blend and a couple of Merlots, all designed to show the differences between some of the well known grape varieties and how the styles of wine vary around the world. More recently we've extended our repetoire to include a Champagne tasting at the end of August (afterall Dom Perignon was a monk!) and a Bordeaux tasting, showing that even the most expensive wine region in the world can produce some gems that you or I can afford.

Look out for the next one! (details above).
