This month we welcome Lynda Mellor on what will be her first visit to our Society.  Lynda will be presenting wines from South Africa, an area which she is well regarded for her knowledge and enthusiasm. She came to the wine industry by mistake, having been offered a sales position by a South African wine importer. She took the job, found her calling and has never looked back!   In recent years, Lynda has been agent for Holden Manz wines in the UK, so these wines will feature amongst other wineries which she knows well.

Christmas tasting: Drinking with Dickens

For our Christmas tasting this year, we'll be taking members back to the 19th century! Society Member Nesta has come up with this brilliant idea and she will be coordinating our evening.   Nesta discovered that Charles Dickens was a “bon viveur” who had a wine cellar at Gads Hill Place in Kent.  The list of the wines he held there reveals that he purchased most of his wines from the three Ellis brothers merchants. The wine company the Ellis brothers created now trades as Ellis Wines, so it is fitting that their Business Development Manager Chris White should present the wines.
