PICNIC LUNCH AT STEVENAGE
The Wine Society, Gunnels Wood Road, Stevenage, SG1 2BT
Date: Saturday 1st August
From: 11.00am to c.2.00pm
Rather than love, people or the sun's gravitational pull, many of us feel that it is, in fact, bread, cheese and wine that make the world go round. With this firmly in mind, the Tastings Team, for the first time, is hosting an in-house tasting of our top 15 picks for summer followed by an indoor 'picnic' lunch.
The informal walk-around tasting will showcase sparkling wines, crisp whites and delicious rosés as well as tasty reds to get you in a summery mood whatever the weather. Once you have tasted the wines, you will be invited to pour yourself a glass of your favourite and sit down to an extensive selection of breads and cheeses.

The time is fast approaching for lazy Sundays in the park, impromptu al fresco get-togethers and burnt sausages on the barbecue. To celebrate the arrival of our British summer we have put together a selection of 20 wines chosen specifically to capture the style and mood of traditional summer events.
We are confident that there is a wine here to suit every occasion and budget, whether a fresh, vibrant white, a refreshing rosé or a light, fruity red. So if you're in need of some seasonal vinous inspiration help is at hand.
