What we do

Our group began in January 2002 and has built up to a very friendly group who have great fun "traveling the world" finding out about the different Wines and the Countries that they come from. Sometimes we have a slide film show to give a better idea of what a country is like. This included our own English wine industry, which some people know little about. We aim to enjoy tasting 4 to 5 different wines to learn and discover which of the world's grapes we like best. Some people enjoy taking notes for future reference while others just relax and enjoy the experience and the congenial company. Our Christmas Party (involving some additional cost) is always a very jolly affair and on this day it is recommended to use public transport. The group at 30 members is fully subscribed at the moment but we have waiting list in operation for those wishing to join us in the future. People on the waiting list can take part in meetings that are not fully attended. There is a charge of £3 to £5 per meeting.

Reports

Coronavirus Threat

With the present situation no more meetings, but hope to see you all on the fourth Thursday in September

January 2020

Our monthly meetings have been looking at blends from different parts of the world mostly sourced through Majestic Wine.

We ended the year with a splendid lunch at Abbot Hall Social Centre starting with a sparkling rose aperitif, a sancerre from the Loire valley with the first course and Château-neuf-du-Pape with a roast beef dinner.  We had Tia Maria with Christmas pudding and Taylor's port with an excellent selection of cheeses to round off. These wines were all supplied from Sainsbury.

We do have vacancies and anybody interested is asked to contact Barbara. We look forward to varied programme next year to end with a lunch in May
