We meet informally in each others homes on the First Wednesday of every month.

There is always a connection between the two wines which will have been chosen and purchased by our host.

We 'Blind Taste' and guess the Grape and the Country etc. whilst enjoying the wine and the company, our conversation ranges over many topics as we taste and talk.

 We consider all aspects of the look, smell and taste of the wines and score each on these attributes and of course the value for money, the cost not being revealed until the end of the tasting.

Please note that we contribute £3 each at the meetings to share the cost of the wines.

Occasionally we will try more expensive wines having agreed to contribute £5 each for that particular month.

You can find out where the venue is for the next tasting by contacting the group leader.
