How the Group Operates

The group operates as follows:-

  1. The monthly meetings will normally be on the third Wednesday of each month at 12:30 for an 13:00 start.
  2. The cost of the meeting will be €15 each as before. Correct money would be appreciated! 
  3. All members will be e-mail-ed during the second week of each month with the date of the next meeting and the menu selection. 
  4. Please then send an e-mail reply with your confirmation of attendance and your choice of meal by the Saturday preceding the meeting data. 
  5. E-mails will be confirmed and, if you haven’t had a confirmation within three days, your e-mail has obviously been lost in the ether and you will need to phone the Group Leader on 96 579 3220.
  6. The Meeting:
  7. Upon your arrival at the restaurant, please pay (in notes) and you will be given a slip of paper with your name and menu choice on it.  Please put this slip on the table in front of where you are sitting to help the waitress serve you (and also to remind you what you ordered!).

  8. Raffle:  Raffle tickets are €2 each or a strip of 5 for €5 and will be available as members pay for their meal on arrival at La Cocina.  The raffle proceeds, as in the past, will help to build up a kitty for our wine purchases.

  9. Water and bread will be provided during the tasting.
  10. There will normally be a selection of four wines, one bottle per table at a time, and you will all be able to see the labels and read the notes on each bottle. This will enable you to easily identify wines that you may wish to purchase at a later date.  Some extra information from the Internet or from the relevant bodega owner may be available in order to expand a little on the background of the wines whilst tasting them.
  11. Our hosts Cliff and Laurie at La Cocina will provide us with a freshly produced main course of your choice at around 14:00. Should you require extra wine or drinks for the meal, please pay for it when ordering.
  12. Late Cancellations: Members who have booked but cannot make the meeting due to last minute problems on the day, should ring La Cocina on 96 579 5140. Please have details of your menu choices available in order that La Cocina can cancel your meal.
