Sauvignon or Pinot Gris     -      Camembert or Brie

TAPAS members have FUN supporting local charities at their Annual Cheese and Wine event.

TAPAS members and their guests had a fabulous time at their Annual Charity CHEESE AND WINE QUIZ.    In glorious sunshine, the event was hosted by members Trish and Mike in their beautiful gardens at Coin.

 

Guests worked their way through guessing a Rioja from a Shiraz, a Pinot Gris from a Sauvignon and many more. There were some tricky cheese questions too…. who would know the most expensive cheese came from Donkey Milk? 

 

There was determined competitive fervor seen in the tastings.  After feasting on a range of different types of cheese and varied wines, the competition finished with galant winners and respectable scores.

 

“Lots of fun and we pulled out the culinary stops for this event” said TAPAS Chair Betty Ross, who went on to add “We have not been able to hold many events for a while due to restrictions, so we were especially delighted to kick off this year’s fundraising with €150 today for local charities. It was a lovely afternoon and just what everyone needed.”  

 

Social distancing was observed. “No cheeses were harmed during the proceedings, although a couple of strong ones left a lingering aroma in the kitchen”, said organizers Angela and Trish.

As that famous Rodgers and Hammerstein’s song ‘Carousel’ goes, June is bustin’ out all over.
