Current Group Status: Full

We first met in September 2009 with no great knowledge of wine tasting protocol but with a desire to learn more about the world’s wines. Not sure that we have progressed very far, but we have had many enjoyable tastings together. Members take turns in hosting a meeting at their home and these take place around the dining table where generous quantities of bread, biscuits, cheese, etc are provided by the host for cleansing the palate.

In addition to our normal meetings we have arranged visits to Vineyards in the UK & try to make at least 1 trip to France each year for a meal and wine tasting. Members usually take this opportunity to stock up their cellars at a reasonable cost.

Last year for our ninth trip to France we opted to try an overnight stay which was most enjoyable and more relaxed than the normal day trip. Who knows, maybe a trip to the champagne region this year.
