Ten of us sampled each of the wines in turn; each with a different course, twittering as we did so. Later, once the Americans sat down to their meal and tasting, we twittered about the wines. Finally collapsed to bed about 2AM.

not hugely impressed with the PB, vastly better with food – the onion tart was beautiful – the wines acidity cut thru the egg perfectly

Not entirely sure how useful this is especially as it does not include the dozens of others who twittered through the evening, their questions and replies but I requred a record of the evening.
