May 2023 - Bordeaux and Beyond - Tony Hill
On Thursday May 18th we welcomed back to the club Tony Hill of Bordeaux & Beyond. Tony and his partner John Green set up B&B to import fine wines from Southern France, especially Bordeaux on the predicate that they only select wines they particularly like and if they don't sell them they will drink them. Sounds good to me.
Tony only sells on-line (www.bordeauxetbeyond.co.uk) with a minimum of 6 of any wine.
He bought an excellent selection from his collection with three whites and four reds plus a champagne quiz as an interlude
