The Wine Society tasting at Tonino


Forty members of The Wine Society and their guests attended a wine dinner at “Tonino” on March 14, 2006. Here is a report from The Wine Society.
“We had a great time at Tonino on the night before Holi. The evening was planned for the terrace as it was to be a full moon night but the weather gods played spoilsport and the sky remained overcast for most of the evening so the dinner was moved indoors, but the aperitifs were served outside. Tonino lends itself to such get-togethers beautifully and contributed greatly to the convivial atmoshere in conjunction with the wine.
Only two wines were served throughout the evening a St.Julia ‘Fuzion’ white (a blend of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay) and the St. Julia Cabernet Sauvignon, both from Argentina. These went down very well and were provideded by Gurpreetesh Maini, who imports them through his company Rhine & Raavi. Gurpreetesh is a Wine Society member. An excellent meal was produced by the restaurant, which belongs to member, Parmeet Sawhney.”
