Wine tasting at Børsen 2008

November 2nd, 2008 | Posted by Niels Klintø in Copenhagen - (0 Comments)

Saturday I barely managed to be sober from the IUM Bob Tournament Friday afternoon/evening before it was time for the yearly wine tasting by Holte Vinlager held at the beautiful building Børsen (former Stock exchange) – and it was at 12……  too early, but at 12.00 we were there and ready!


Franck and I was ready for the tasting

Is that a cool wineglas-holder or what?
2 real tasting experts ready to taste quite a lot of the 40 wine yards wine….

And of course we spend some time at the Dry Creek Vineyard – their Chardonnay ‘from the Russian river’ is a really really nice Chardonnay – just love it!
And it seem like the Director of Export Antonio Silvia from Dry Creek Vineyard liked Alexandra – at least when Alexandras bouyfriend Franck is not around…  😉

Franck was really giving me a great tour of the French wines – and there were some really good wines among them…  thanx Franck!

First of all a BIG thanx to the IUM staff for this great IUM Bob Tournament 2008 and of course for inviting me – I had great fun and you always manage to invite the best (party) people from the bizz..

Again I wasnt partaking in the Bob Tournament… I was late, not fully over the loose together with MP 2 years ago and I didnt have a Bob-partner … I guess I need to be playing next year, but on the other hand its always cool just enjoying the beer and super drinks served by the IUM bar staff – Jesper, you make a mean GT, nearly up to the standard of the famous Busch-drinks…  ouch…

In the bar I did of course find the 2 Danish Googlers Sune Nielsen og Nikolaj Thonbo

Good seeing you again.

IUM had ‘dressed’ up their office in Bob Style – and this year the theme was Bob and German Beer festival (sort of explains all the German flags..)

If you look a little closer you can see Nikolaj Thunbo ordering for us in the bar…  good job!
