    That was fun. Food was good, like part of a mid-level orthodox wedding shmorg. Carving station of turkey and corned beef, lots of sushi, and various salads. Lots of good wines to try and some labels were more generous than others (I'm looking at you, Herzog). I'm not much of a red wine drinker but a couple were quite good--Montefiore's Syrah and Petite Syrah were both good. The clear winner in the big, bold red category was a 2004 Château Moulin Riche Saint Julien. It was also probably the most expensive one I tried last night at roughly £90 a bottle.

      Its interesting that Kedem will be selling wine by the case at this event, which they don't do at the US events. Ticket price is also a little more than half the price in the US before any coupons.
      Only thing to be aware is that the wines they showcase are only from their portfolio, so no Yarden, Galil Mountain, Bravdo, Odem, etc.

      Have fun

        The case thing may be a NYS law? I am sure the UK is more liberal about that sort of thing. It's a much smaller event, as I understand it, with less of a food component, so the lower price is understandable.
