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.

Keith Cooper – Chairman

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 held for 15 years.  Keith became Chair of the Society in February 2021.  His responsibilities include organising the programme of tastings and maintaining the website. Keith and his late wife Liz have visited many of the world’s wine regions. His favourite destinations are the USA, New Zealand and South Africa’s Cape. However, it is the wines of Bordeaux which he enjoys for a special occasion.
