Calendar Month Ahead - June

After the flurry of excitement that was May, June might seem a little on the quieter side.  But delve a little deeper & there are hives of activity all over the country, from Open Days at acclaimed Nyetimber, to a stroll in Provence courtesy of the Wine Society to a whole host of grower-presented tastings.  Summer is most definitely here, and to stay by the looks of things, so time to gently float through a few refreshing glasses & toast to the season.
