It's always a privilege for our Society to welcome a Master of Wine, the highest qualification in the wine world. This month we are delighted to welcome Master of Wine Jo Locke, a buyer at The Wine Society, who will be presenting to us for the first time. One of Jo's specialist regions is South Africa and she will present a range of this country's wines from The Wine Society's portfolio. Jo says that South Africa is recognised for great value for money and, increasingly, for quality. She finds it exciting because it's a re-emerging wine industry. There are a lot of bright young people working there and it's the most dynamic of the world's wine regions which she is lucky enough to visit.Find out more »

In October, we'll welcome back Gilbert Winfield and his tasting will focus exclusively on the wines of the Southern Rhone. This region is very popular with many of our members and we'll be looking forward to tasting the fantastic blends for which this region is so well known. Of course, the reds will feature prominently, but we'll also be able to enjoy some of the modern style whites which this region is now producing. Gilbert is exceptionally qualified to present this tasting - he's a member of the Association of Wine Educators, a WSET approved educator and a member of the Circle of Wine Writers. He's also recently completed and passed the examination for the 'Master Rhone' programme with Inter-Rhone, the representative body for the wines of the Rhone Valley (who are part sponsoring our evening), so he's now an Accredited Rhone Tutor.Find out more »
