World wines sam­pled at church evening

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

WINES from around the world were sam­pled at a sell-out wine tast­ing ses­sion at All Saints Church, Chal­font St Peter.

Fol­low­ing pre­vi­ous suc­cess­ful events, parish­ioner and wine en­thu­si­ast Trevor Hat­ton re­turned to the vil­lage to guide guests through the tast­ing and hosted a quiz.

All of the wines could be found at lo­cal sup­pli­ers.

As­sisted as ‘Master of Wine’ for the evening by wife Anne, son Christo­pher and daugh­ter Alex, Mr Hat­ton treated every­one to a can­dlelit evening of in­struc­tion and laugh­ter while tast­ing dif­fer­ent wines and com­pet­ing for prizes.

Peo­ple showed their dis­cern­ing sides with hu­mor­ous team names such as Que Syrah Syrah, Once in a Blue Nun and Planet of the Grapes.

It raised funds to­wards an arts and crafts church in Oval Way and the new­found wine con­nois­seurs were grate­ful to the Hat­ton fam­ily for stag­ing the evening.

The wine tast­ing ses­sion was held at All Saints Church
