Wine and food tasting evening at the Copper Horse, March 2015

March 2015’s 41 Club meeting was a fantastic evening co-hosted by the Copper Horse and Kris Cattaneo of Betton Wines, Kris is the son of former Tabler John Cattaneo so was on a winner from the start, the evening consisted of excellent drinks and food with comments on each drink and suitability for each course by our hosts. One of the best tasting evenings we have had in my opinion. Here’s the menu:
