Current Group Status: Full

We have a group of 16 members and when we meet monthly at their houses the host presents a selection of wines for tasting by the members to further their knowledge of the grapes and enjoy ourselves!

In the summer we try and use the member’s gardens for our presentations, including our annual BBQ. At Christmas we have a meal at a member’s house or a local restaurant.

Over the last year wines from Italy, Cyprus, Portugal, South Rhone and Spain have been presented by members.

The Group has visited various vineyards in Surrey, Sussex, Kent, Oxfordshire and Hampshire to tour their vineyards, sample and purchase wines and take lunch.

We receive tutored tasting at our annual “Taste Wine and Dine” event in the Spring at the Old Barn Hall, hosted by St Nicolas Church and also at our all Wine Groups Social in the Autumn, which is organised by the Wine Groups.

We are considering further tutored presentations with other Wine Groups.
Also through friendships developed within the Group we meet socially outside our normal activities.

Please contact the Group Leaders for more information.
