“Thank you so much for organising such a wonderful and interesting evening; one of the best yet. We thought all the wines were first class and Mike brought them all to life with his interesting stories about Professor Black, The Jazz Band, Peaches, the opera singer and many more. The information on using restriction and flooding of water to stop and start hormone growth was fascinating. Our favourites were Trilogy and Vilafonte Series C. Also a delicious supper to conclude a fantastic evening of education in like minded company.” Pat & John Shore, Harrogate.
