Bouquet of Flavours

Since 1989 we have hosted a wine-tasting in the spring. Originally it was organized by Creative Living Service Board and called “Taster’s Choice”. In 1999 it was called “New Orleans Live” and from 2000 to present ” Bouquet of Flavours”. A unique setting is sought to add interest.
