French Connection - tutored wine- tasting event  in the Wringbrook House barn in Station Road, Wrington, was the brainchild of Twinning Association committee member, John Urquhart. His most recent visit to Villeneuve-lès-Béziers in November, 2012, was as a representative of the Wrington Branch of the Royal British Legion at the Remembrance activities of their opposite numbers in Villeneuve. On that occasion he had received an honour from his fellow veterans, cemented friendships .... and renewed his acquaintance with the local wines. Hence he was uniquely qualified to arrange what proved to be a delightful evening for 40 or so local Wrington oenophiles discovering some of the delights offered by the Languedoc region. Four tables, staffed by members of the Twinning Association committee, helped participants to a taste of the range of wines listed on the left. Having thanked John and Pat Ledbury for their hospitality in hosting the event in such appropriately atmospheric surroundings, John  elicited from the assembled bibbers which wines had been their favourites from the four tables, concluding with an overall red and a white Wine of the Evening. One pleasing additional result of the evening was the recruiting of some more welcome members.
