Wine Appreciation Club

Hosted by Rosie Bainbridge, who frequently writes about wine in local magazines, these relaxed sessions allow you to not only try out new wines but also sample appropriate accompying food.

We meet every fortnight on Fridays at 7.30pm at the Village Hall. These sessions will look at different countries & wine regions to compare grape varieties and their wines. We’ll look at the background of each region and the major influences upon quality, style and price.
Also included will be food & wine matching ideas.

At each session we taste /evaluate 5-6 wines (plus a mystery wine) and have a wine quiz!!
