Wine Appreciation Group 1

We usually meet at the Settlement on the first Friday of the month at 8 pm -  our meetings usually including wine tastings!

We currently have a few vacancies for new members. You do not need to have a great knowledge of wines, just an interest in a great evening with a lively group. Contact details are below:

For our latest plans see the 'Group Events' panel on the right, the current Newsletter, or get in touch with our Group Contacts, John and George.

Will members please ensure that the group contacts are informed every month, if you plan to attend.
