Had some local friends round for early evening birthday drinks.
London March 2019
Joe gave me this - I had been wanting to try it, it's Marks and Spencer's own brand ESW, made at Ridgeview.
I think Merret was the name Ridgeview had at one time proposed for English Sparkling Wine.
The chaps - Geoffrey, me, Joe and Jeremy. Quite a poignant picture actually, as Joe was going to be moving away from London the following day.
Sugrue, The Trouble With Dreams.
This was a present from Geoffrey, Kyra and Alexandra, I absolutely loved this label.
...and it continued on the back!
Erika and some of her friends. Somehow Erika managed to comandeer my birthday party and turn it into a kid's party as well.
Erika and her friends again.
Birthday cake - a Black Forest Gateau - which rather impressively was made by Chie while the party was happening.
The party had finished by 9pm, but I wanted to catalogue the wines we'd had so took this picture of the empty bottle later. It's a limited release from Ridgeview, a Blanc de Noirs from 2014.
