NBCC members enjoyed the hospitality offered by Cyclone Europe, a longstanding NBCC member, during the annual “Wine Tasting Event” which was held on 6 November 2013. This year’s edition took place on Forteiland, IJmuiden, The Netherlands, a location that provided the guests with a welcome and historic atmosphere. Wines from all over Europe, including but not limited to Spain, Italy and Slovenia were presented by various vintners. A guided tour was also given throughout the fort, explaining the historic relevance. For the duration of the event there was ample opportunity to network for the more than 60 guests attending the event.
