█ 21 September - Tinpot Hut wynmaker in Cork
Ag my. Dit is so belowend. 'N Proe-spyskaart met 'n paar moontlike topklaswyne, aangebied deur die wynmaker, teen 'n baie beskeie prys en op 'n buigsame manier (saam met 'n begrotingsmenu of à la carte soos u wil). Dit is jammer dat dit op die laaste minuut opgestel is, want ek was met 'n hartklop daar as ek kon herrangskik. So gaan kyk gerus vir my.

Alhoewel ek nie die betrokke wyne geproe het nie, het hulle beslis 'n belowende stamboom. Die mede-eienaar van Matt Thomson en Fiona Turner, die Tinpot Hut-mark-bestaande uit wyne van beide die noordelike en suidelike eilande van Nieu-Seeland-het verskeie toekennings gewen.

Fiona is op 'n kort besoek aan Ierland en sal op Woensdag 21 September by Electric on the South Mall in Cork wees. Ek weet nog nie of daar 'n formaat is nie, maar vanaf 17:30 kan almal wat van die vroeë voëlspyskaart eet ook prop by haar wyne - 'n halwe glas elk van die Tinpot Hut sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, grüner veltliner (gv), pinot noir en syrah. Ek is geïnteresseerd in almal, en ek is veral geïnteresseerd in die TV wat selde buite sy geboorteland Oostenryk gesien word. Dit is vyf wyne en u verdien 29 €. As u eerder à la carte wil bestel, kan u die wyn bietjie soos hierbo byvoeg vir slegs € 10. Ag kom op, soos.

U sal alle inligting oor die geleentheid op Electric op hul webwerf vind hier . En as u weer by sulke geleenthede betrokke is, stuur 'n e -pos aan my en laat weet my.

23 September Kultuuraand
Daar is een afwyking van die wyn- en biergebeurtenisse op hierdie lys, en dit is 'n groot ding. Op Kultuuraand hierdie Vrydag maak honderde plekke landwyd laat in die aand hul deure oop vir die publiek, waarvan baie spesiale geleenthede aanbied, en almal gratis. Hier is die nasionale Kultuuraand webwerf.

Neem my landgoed, Cork, as voorbeeld. Daar is 200 geleenthede in meer as 75 plekke, wat almal met reg die kunste-uitstallings, toneelstukke, filmvertonings, voorlesings, ens-met kultuur in die grootste sin kombineer.

En selfs as u deur die onmoontlike reisplan gekom het, het u nog steeds minder as 'n tiende van die aanbiedinge beleef. Sien jy wat ek bedoel? Laai die PDF af op die Cork Culture Night webwerf of, nog beter, soek die gedrukte boekie in kunsplekke, biblioteke, ens.

Maar daar is ook gebeure aan die gang van Beara in die weste tot Youghal in die ooste, en baie punte tussenin: Baile Mhuirne, Ballydehob, Bandon, Carrigaline, Castlelyons, Castlemagner, Castletownbere, Charleville, Coachford, Cobh, Crookstown, Cúil Aodha, Cullen, Eyeries, Fermoy, Freemount, Glengarriff, Goleen, Kilworth, Kinsale, Macroom, Mallow, Midleton, Millstreet, Mitchelstown, Schull, Shanagarry, Skibbereen, Youghal. Kyk dus na die webwerf van die County Council hierbo of vra plaaslik rond.

█ 27 September - Voedselprodusente en wyn in O ’Connell ’s van Donnybrook
Sjoe. Selfs saam met sommige van die ander ryk keuses, is dit waarskynlik 'n uitstekende gebeurtenis. O ’Connell's werk saam met verskeie van hul voedselprodusente in vennootskap en met wyninvoerders Febvre om 'n uiters indrukwekkende en tog afgekoelde aand- en wynaand saam te stel. U sal u voorgereg in die styl van 'n buffet kies, maar u sal dit soos volg direk by die vervaardigers afhaal

Organiese gerookte salm van Bill Casey Shanagarry Co Cork
Chorizo, Salamis en kaas van Gubbeen
Organiese varkvleis en groente van Alan Pierce, Gold River Farm, Co Wicklow
Organiese hoender van Mary O ’Regan, Enniscorthy, Co Wexford
Hereford Prime Steaks Christy Broe, Die Ierse Hereford Prime Beef Society
Vars vis van Skulpvis van La Mer, Castletownbere, Co Cork

Dan word die hoofgeregte en nageregte aan u bedien. En Carlos Martínez Bujanda van die topklas Bodegas Conde de Valdemar, Rioja, sal byderhand wees om komplimentêre wyne te skink. Daar sal ook 'n proe -vlug wees van die wyne van die wynmakery teen 20% afslag op die normale prys. As u daarvan praat, hang u finale rekening af van wat u daarna bestel, insluitend die vroeë voël van € 20,95 die hele nag. Dit is 'n goeie waarde.

Dankie vir die verbeelding om 'n geleentheid saam te stel wat nuttig en opwindend is, en ook so toeganklik is. Al die besonderhede is hier op O ’Connell ’s webwerf . Gaan boek.

█ 21 September - Tinpot Hut wynmaker in Cork
Ag my. Dit is so belowend. 'N Proe-spyskaart met 'n paar moontlike topklaswyne, aangebied deur die wynmaker, teen 'n baie beskeie prys en op 'n buigsame manier (saam met 'n begrotingsmenu of à la carte soos u wil). Dit is jammer dat dit op die laaste minuut opgestel is, want ek was met 'n hartklop daar as ek kon herrangskik. So gaan kyk gerus vir my.

Alhoewel ek nie die betrokke wyne geproe het nie, het hulle beslis 'n belowende stamboom. Die mede-eienaar van Matt Thomson en Fiona Turner, die Tinpot Hut-mark-bestaande uit wyne van beide die noordelike en suidelike eilande van Nieu-Seeland-het verskeie toekennings gewen.

Fiona is op 'n kort besoek aan Ierland en is op Woensdag 21 September by Electric on the South Mall in Cork. Ek weet nog nie of daar 'n formaat is nie, maar vanaf 17:30 kan almal wat van die vroeë voëlspyskaart eet ook prop by haar wyne - 'n halwe glas elk van die Tinpot Hut sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, grüner veltliner (gv), pinot noir en syrah. Ek is geïnteresseerd in almal, en ek is veral geïnteresseerd in die TV wat selde buite sy geboorteland Oostenryk gesien word. Dit is vyf wyne en u verdien 29 €. As u eerder à la carte wil bestel, kan u die wyn bietjie soos hierbo byvoeg vir slegs € 10. Ag kom nou, soos.

U sal alle inligting oor die geleentheid op Electric op hul webwerf vind hier . En as u weer by sulke geleenthede betrokke is, stuur 'n e -pos aan my en laat weet my.

23 September Kultuuraand
There’s one deviation from the wine and beer events on this list, and it’s a biggie. On Culture Night this Friday, hundreds of venues nationwide throw open their doors to the public late into the evening, many of them hosting special events, and all free of charge. Here’s the national Culture Night website.

Take my manor, Cork, as an example. There are 200 events in 75-plus venues, all quite rightly mashing up the arts — exhibitions, plays, film screenings, readings etc — with culture in the widest sense.

To give you a sense of the event’s breadth, you could…
♦ bring the littl’uns to the excellent Graffiti theatre-in-education in Blackpool,
♦ paddle your boat up and down the Lee,
♦ tour the innards of the Everyman Palace Theatre, a beautiful Victorian music hall whose stage was once graced by Miss Minnie Cunningham,
♦ join the Lord Mayor for City Hall’s open evening,
♦ be serenaded aboard the three Culture Bus shuttles laid on for the night,
♦ go to church for tours & talks by architectural and historical experts,
♦ drop in on rehearsals in the bandroom of the Butter Exchange Brass Band,
♦ visit the barracks that provided troops for conflicts ranging from the Napoleonic Wars through to UN peacekeeping missions…

And even if you got through that impossible itinerary, you’d still have experienced less than a tenth of what’s on offer. See what I mean? Download the PDF on the Cork Culture Night website or, better still, seek out the printed booklet in arts venues, libraries etc all over the city.

County Cork is weighing in for the first time this year, with a full programme of events at County Hall, right on the doorstep of the city. But there are also events going on from Beara in the west to Youghal in the east, and many points in between: Baile Mhuirne, Ballydehob, Bandon, Carrigaline, Castlelyons, Castlemagner, Castletownbere, Charleville, Coachford, Cobh, Crookstown, Cúil Aodha, Cullen, Eyeries, Fermoy, Freemount, Glengarriff, Goleen, Kilworth, Kinsale, Macroom, Mallow, Midleton, Millstreet, Mitchelstown, Schull, Shanagarry, Skibbereen, Youghal. So take a look at the County Council site above or ask around locally.

█ September 27 – Food producers & wine in O’Connell’s of Donnybrook
Wow. Even alongside some of the other rich pickings, this is likely to be an outstanding event. O’Connell’s have worked with several of their partner food producers and with wine importers Febvre to put together an enormously impressive and yet chilled-out food and wine evening. You will choose your starters in the style of a buffet – but you’ll be picking them up directly from the producers as follows…

Organic smoked salmon from Bill Casey Shanagarry Co Cork
Chorizo, Salamis and Cheese from Gubbeen
Organic Pork and Vegetables from Alan Pierce, Gold River Farm, Co Wicklow
Organic Chicken from Mary O’Regan, Enniscorthy, Co Wexford
Hereford Prime Steaks Christy Broe, The Irish Hereford Prime Beef Society
Fresh fish from Shellfish de La Mer, Castletownbere, Co Cork

Then, the mains and desserts will be served to you at your table. And Carlos Martínez Bujanda from the top-class Bodegas Conde de Valdemar, Rioja, will be on hand to pour complimentary wines. There will also be a tasting flight of the winery’s wines at 20% off the normal price. Speaking of which, your final bill depends on what you order thereafter, including their €20.95 all-night early bird. That’s good value.

Kudos for the imagination to put together an event that’s both useful and exciting, and also so accessibly priced. All the details are here on O’Connell’s website . Go book.

█ September 28 – Latin American wines at The Merrion
The Merrion Wine Society’s second dinner this year is focused on wines from Latin America. The six-course dinner will be accompanied by wines from Chile, Argentina and Uruguay presented by Mary Dowey, wine editor of The Gloss. Book tickets (€90) now on 01-2755310 or email [email protected]

NB: I’m leaving this post with previous events up for reference only – if you want to see up-to-date listings of forthcoming tastings etc pop over here .

█ September 21 – Tinpot Hut winemaker in Cork
OH my. This is so promising. A tasting menu of some potentially top-class wines, presented by the winemaker, delivered at a very modest price and in a flexible way (to accompany a budget set menu or à la carte as you choose). It’s a pity it was set up at the last minute, as I’d have been there in a heartbeat if I could rearrange. So go and check it out for me.

While I haven’t tasted the wines in question, they certainly have a promising pedigree. Co-owned by Matt Thomson and Fiona Turner, the Tinpot Hut marque — comprising wines from both north and south islands of New Zealand — has picked up various posh awards.

Fiona is on a brief visit to Ireland and will be at Electric on the South Mall in Cork on Wednesday September 21. I don’t yet know if there’s a format but from 5.30pm, anyone dining from the early bird menu can also plug into her wines — a half glass each of the Tinpot Hut sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, grüner veltliner (gv), pinot noir and syrah. I’m interested in all of them, and am particularly intrigued by the gv which is rarely seen outside its native Austria. That’s five wines and your snap for €29. If you’d rather order à la carte, you can just add the wine bit as above for just €10. Ah come on, like.

You’ll find all the info about the event in Electric on their website hier . And again if you’re involved in such events, please drop me an email and let me know.

█ September 22 – Big tasting at Ely
More than 70 wines and cocktails on offer at Ely’s second BIG tasting. It’s €20 or, for a set three-course dinner, €35. 6pm and 8pm. Book on [email protected] or 01 678 7867.

█ September 23 to 25 – The All-Ireland Beer Festival at the RDS
More than 40 beers and ciders (along some whiskies) will be pouring at this new festival which clearly aims to become a major annual fixture. It’s open on Friday (4pm to 12.30am Saturday noon to 12.30am Sunday noon to 6pm. Tickets are €10 per day or €15 for a three-day pass. You have to change your cash into festival ‘Beer Bucks’ to buy food and drink from the exhibitors at an exchange rate of €2.50 per buck, each of which buys you a half pint. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.ie or from The Bull and Castle pub near Christchurch on Lord Edward St D2, and L Mulligan Grocer at 18 Stoneybatter D7. www.irishcraftbeerfestival.com.

You’ll find all the info about the event in Electric on their website hier . And again if you’re involved in such events, please drop me an email and let me know.

█ September 22 – Big tasting at Ely

█ September 23 to 25 – The All-Ireland Beer Festival at the RDS
More than 40 beers and ciders (along some whiskies) will be pouring at this new festival which clearly aims to become a major annual fixture. It’s open on Friday (4pm to 12.30am Saturday noon to 12.30am Sunday noon to 6pm. Tickets are €10 per day or €15 for a three-day pass. You have to change your cash into festival ‘Beer Bucks’ to buy food and drink from the exhibitors at an exchange rate of €2.50 per buck, each of which buys you a half pint.

September 23 Culture Night
There’s one deviation from the wine and beer events on this list, and it’s a biggie. On Culture Night this Friday, hundreds of venues nationwide throw open their doors to the public late into the evening, many of them hosting special events, and all free of charge. Here’s the national Culture Night website.

Take my manor, Cork, as an example. There are 200 events in 75-plus venues, all quite rightly mashing up the arts — exhibitions, plays, film screenings, readings etc — with culture in the widest sense.

To give you a sense of the event’s breadth, you could…
♦ bring the littl’uns to the excellent Graffiti theatre-in-education in Blackpool,
♦ paddle your boat up and down the Lee,
♦ tour the innards of the Everyman Palace Theatre, a beautiful Victorian music hall whose stage was once graced by Miss Minnie Cunningham,
♦ join the Lord Mayor for City Hall’s open evening,
♦ be serenaded aboard the three Culture Bus shuttles laid on for the night,
♦ go to church for tours & talks by architectural and historical experts,
♦ drop in on rehearsals in the bandroom of the Butter Exchange Brass Band,
♦ visit the barracks that provided troops for conflicts ranging from the Napoleonic Wars through to UN peacekeeping missions…

And even if you got through that impossible itinerary, you’d still have experienced less than a tenth of what’s on offer. See what I mean? Download the PDF on the Cork Culture Night website or, better still, seek out the printed booklet in arts venues, libraries etc all over the city.

County Cork is weighing in for the first time this year, with a full programme of events at County Hall, right on the doorstep of the city. But there are also events going on from Beara in the west to Youghal in the east, and many points in between: Baile Mhuirne, Ballydehob, Bandon, Carrigaline, Castlelyons, Castlemagner, Castletownbere, Charleville, Coachford, Cobh, Crookstown, Cúil Aodha, Cullen, Eyeries, Fermoy, Freemount, Glengarriff, Goleen, Kilworth, Kinsale, Macroom, Mallow, Midleton, Millstreet, Mitchelstown, Schull, Shanagarry, Skibbereen, Youghal. So take a look at the County Council site above or ask around locally.

█ September 27 – Food producers & wine in O’Connell’s of Donnybrook
Wow. Even alongside some of the other rich pickings, this is likely to be an outstanding event. O’Connell’s have worked with several of their partner food producers and with wine importers Febvre to put together an enormously impressive and yet chilled-out food and wine evening. You will choose your starters in the style of a buffet – but you’ll be picking them up directly from the producers as follows…

Organic smoked salmon from Bill Casey Shanagarry Co Cork
Chorizo, Salamis and Cheese from Gubbeen
Organic Pork and Vegetables from Alan Pierce, Gold River Farm, Co Wicklow
Organic Chicken from Mary O’Regan, Enniscorthy, Co Wexford
Hereford Prime Steaks Christy Broe, The Irish Hereford Prime Beef Society
Fresh fish from Shellfish de La Mer, Castletownbere, Co Cork

Then, the mains and desserts will be served to you at your table. And Carlos Martínez Bujanda from the top-class Bodegas Conde de Valdemar, Rioja, will be on hand to pour complimentary wines. There will also be a tasting flight of the winery’s wines at 20% off the normal price. Speaking of which, your final bill depends on what you order thereafter, including their €20.95 all-night early bird. That’s good value.

Kudos for the imagination to put together an event that’s both useful and exciting, and also so accessibly priced. All the details are here on O’Connell’s website . Go book.

█ September 28 – Latin American wines at The Merrion
The Merrion Wine Society’s second dinner this year is focused on wines from Latin America. The six-course dinner will be accompanied by wines from Chile, Argentina and Uruguay presented by Mary Dowey, wine editor of The Gloss. Book tickets (€90) now on 01-2755310 or email [email protected]

█ September 21 – Tinpot Hut winemaker in Cork
OH my. This is so promising. A tasting menu of some potentially top-class wines, presented by the winemaker, delivered at a very modest price and in a flexible way (to accompany a budget set menu or à la carte as you choose). It’s a pity it was set up at the last minute, as I’d have been there in a heartbeat if I could rearrange. So go and check it out for me.

While I haven’t tasted the wines in question, they certainly have a promising pedigree. Co-owned by Matt Thomson and Fiona Turner, the Tinpot Hut marque — comprising wines from both north and south islands of New Zealand — has picked up various posh awards.

Fiona is on a brief visit to Ireland and will be at Electric on the South Mall in Cork on Wednesday September 21. I don’t yet know if there’s a format but from 5.30pm, anyone dining from the early bird menu can also plug into her wines — a half glass each of the Tinpot Hut sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, grüner veltliner (gv), pinot noir and syrah. I’m interested in all of them, and am particularly intrigued by the gv which is rarely seen outside its native Austria. That’s five wines and your snap for €29. If you’d rather order à la carte, you can just add the wine bit as above for just €10. Ah come on, like.
