Ctes du Rhne quiz night

Published:  23 July, 2008

Harpers took the runners-up spot in the annual Ctes du Rhne quiz night in London last week. Each team member demonstrated an unlikely (and unhealthy) amount of knowledge on subjects as diverse as Giant Haystacks, Pocahontas and tiddlywinks.

Skippered by editor Christian Davis, the team came within half a point of victory, and then took second place in the quickfire buzzer finale.

The winners, York Wines, earned a meal at London restaurant Le Gavroche, while Harpers made do with a magnum of 2001 Cte Rtie Jasmin each.

Even a brief bout of fisticuffs between two women at the end of the evening (yes, really - Ed) couldn't spoil the frivolity.
