Mark Anthony Wines Portfolio Tasting Nov 5/13
The Date and Time: Tuesday, November 5, 2013
The Event: Mark Anthony Portfolio Tasting
The Venue: Soho House
The Target Audience: wine trade
The Availability/Catalogue: everything is landed (Vintages, Consignment) or Private Order. The spiral catalogue, while a good idea, was awkward to use in the limited space, and the page numbers were not large enough for the dim lighting. I know that some users were confused.
The Quote/Background: There were 25 suppliers, from a range of companies.
The Wines: I did not try every wine. Prices are licensee.
