9.02am, Thursday 30th September, London Bridge, London, England, UK
I’m back inside the M25 folks and have bought the sunshine with me. Today we have a big double header starting with lunch for the press and London sommeliers at Pearl – one of our staunch dining room supporters in High Holborn.Then we’re doing a private wine club with another of our favourite blokes in London – Walter Speller, who used to be the wineman at Pont de la Tour, now doing marvelous wine events across the city under his own banner. We’re off into the leather chesterfield and cigar smoke soaked wood panelled rooms of the London club world with Walter this evening – to talk wine at great length, and I’m looking forward to it.
Then folks, it’s all over bar the shouting.
I still have stacks to catch up from the ‘Grim But I like It North’, and have just sent all the photos through this morning to Ryan and Tony at the winery, so you should see those stories pop up on the blog like mushrooms over the next two days, as I want to be completely up to date by the time we get out of town on Saturday night.
