Wine Group 3

Wine Group Three is a sociable group of amateur wine enthusiasts who take enjoy tasting wines in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Each month two of our members choose a theme and share their selection of wines with the group. The group meets at 7:30pm on the third Tuesday of each month but we are taking a break for July and August. We will return to our regular meetings in Mrs Howard Memorial Hall in September.

The Group is currently full but if you are interested in joining us please get in touch with Mike or Jerry - see the Group Contact panel - and we can add you to the waiting list

Brief notes on previous tastings may be found below.
