Wine bar Den Haag

Just a reminder that we meet in the Wine Bar Pierre not in Wassenaar (there was an error in the email), but in Wine Bar Pierre in Dennweg 11, 2514CB Den Haag. The tasting will start at 7:30pm on 3 December. The wine bar will be busy that night, so we will meet at the very end of the wine bar, in the separate room.
