Are you ready to put the trials and tribulations of the last few months behind you? Then come along to your Society's Christmas Tasting!
This year Nesta has organised an evening of group wine tasting focusing on wine made from classic grapes which we all know and love. The wines will be produced from all over the world and together you can taste, chat and work out which wine you are drinking and where it was produced. We have eight intrepid members of your Society who have selected some great Classics for us all to enjoy, the wine will be tasted blind and our presenters will give you feedback on the group decisions and give more background to the wines. Hopefully the evening will provide Christmas cheer, add to your wine knowledge and provide inspiration when choosing wines for the festive season.Find out more »
We start our year by welcoming back Tim Syrad. Tim is well known to many of our members as both an excellent presenter and also an organiser of great wine tours. This time, Tim will present a selection of wines from the Ribera region of Spain. Situated in the north west of the country, the Ribera is one of Spain's most prestigious wine regions. Whilst there is some white wine made, the focus is predominantly on the reds and the tempranillo grape dominates. Through his many tours to the Ribera, Tim has access to some great wines and we look forward to tasting some of the best tonight.Find out more »

We look forward to welcoming back Tony Hill, Owner of Bordeaux and Beyond. Tony will take us on a "Wine Tour de France", covering many different appellations, some famous and some not so famous. Tony will give the story behind the wines and the reasons why he decided to import them. Bordeaux and Beyond are a specialist wine importer, concentrating on wines from small independent vignerons in France, not usually available elsewhere. Bordeaux and Beyond are a web based business, now in their 11th year of trading. They continue to sell only wines that they import and, more importantly, happy to drink themselves!Find out more »
