On behalf of Le Plaisir Wine Society, I would like to say an enormous Thank You for your excellent selection of wines that introduced us to the Wines of Campania. As always your presentation was excellent; interesting, informative and enjoyable with feedback from our members and guests unreservedly positive.

S Boggis (Le Plaisir Wine Society)


Just a quick note to thank you and say how much we all enjoyed the evening at The Galley last Thursday.   The wines were excellent and we are filled with zeal to join the Wine Society!   Also the menu complemented the wine well and the food was extremely good. Your commentary opened our eyes to the changes in Australian wine making, and we will certainly take a closer look when we are next over there, maybe next year but 2017 for sure.
All together a most pleasurable evening.   Please give our thanks to Ugur for his introduction to each course, and to his staff for their care and attention.

Gill (Waldringfield Wine Club) 

Thank you very much for your excellent presentation of Louis Jadot wines. So many of our Members said how much they enjoyed hugely both the wines and your presentation.

Fluget - Aston Wine Club 


I always get a feedback from members and everyone said how interesting
you made the evening with your in-depth knowledge of the grapes,
vineyard owners and their producton of the wines,  plus lots of
interesting facts about Portugal.   The wines were good too, and you
gave us several websites and sources for buying that were new to us.  We
had a very good evening and all agreed that it was worth coming out in
such chilly weather.

With much appreciation and looking forward to seeing you again in the
