Summer Food and Wine Q&A | #AskBordeauxWines

Save the date! From 1 to 3pm on Monday 12 June, I’ll be on Twitter engaging in an afternoon Q&A about summer food and wine pairings with the folks from Bordeaux Wines UK.

That’s me (@tikichris) with Bordeaux Wines (@BordeauxWinesUK) tweeting up a friendly and informative storm of wine-related (and potentially wine-fueled) fun minus any hint of snobbery but full of tips on making your summer as tasty as possible.

We’ll be chatting with the hashtag #AskBordeauxWines and would love for you to join us in our discussion and chime in with any questions you might have.

While there I made sure to stash a bottle in my bag to share with one lucky reader. Fancy a taste of what Britain’s oldest distillers have been during since the 1761? Keep reading.
