What we tasted in July 2023

In July we welcomed back Leon Stolarski of Leon Stolarski Wines who presented an excellent range of wines from the south of France. Whilst it’s always great to welcome back previous presenters, it’s sad (for us!) that this will be the last tasting Leon will present for us. We wish Leon all the best as he heads towards retirement.
