Midland Dinner

The Christmas markets were already in full swing on an autumnal evening in central Manchester and the Midland Hotel and the Commanderie were on fine form.  We enjoyed getting together for a dinner and the opportunity to welcome 2 new Commandeurs to the Commanderie.

Summer Lunch at the King Street Townhouse

We were spared the full heat of this very dry summer but still enjoyed our very nice Heinseck Champagne on the veranda overlooking the Manchester skyline from the King Street Town House.  The gentlemen were resplendent in their summer suits and the ladies in their best summer frocks!  All commandeurs with their regalia and ready to intronise two new members to the cause of promoting Bordeaux wine.

Annual General Meeting and Dinner - The Alderely Edge Hotel

As we gathered that the Alderley Edge for our Annual General Meeting there was a faint tang of moth balls. However this was not the venue, or the palate or nose on any of our wines, but more the sign that summer had arrived and the white dinner jackets had been allowed their first outing of the year!  Thankfully the weather had also got the message and so the sunshine allowed a gathering for the AGM to be an inside and outside event.  The summery feel was aided by some surprisingly fresh tasting Chateau Bauduc Sauvignon Blanc 2014 as it is supposed to be reaching the end of its drinking window and some very edible hors d’oeuvres.
