North Hampshire’s premier wine society

The Team

All of the activities of the Whitewater Valley Wine Society are coordinated by the Committee, which is elected each year at the Annual General Meeting.   We are very grateful for their help and willingness to get involved.

Margaret Steer

Margaret Steer – Chairperson

Margaret has been associated with the Society since its creation back in 1987. She took on the role of Chairperson in 2003 and has led the Society through a period of significant growth. As well as keeping our Committee in order, Margaret also takes a primary role in organising our special events, including fine wine dinners, BBQs and summer garden parties.  Margaret has enjoyed many holidays travelling the vineyards of France and has a passion for the wines of Italy and Burgundy.

Keith Cooper

Keith Cooper – Secretary

Keith joined the Society in the mid 1990s. Following an initial year as Treasurer, he soon took on the role of Secretary, a position which he has now held for 14 years. Keith’s main responsibilities are to organise the programme of tastings and to maintain the website. Keith and his wife Liz have visited many of the world’s wine regions. His favourite destinations are New Zealand and South Africa’s Cape. However, it is the wines of Bordeaux which he enjoys most.
