We have an excellent wine tasting club in our village that meets at 7.30 pm in the Village Hall on the second Wednesday of the month from October through to May. These TSWT meetings are very friendly and informal affairs where the main aim is to have an enjoyable night – and perhaps learn a little bit about the wines we sample.
At a typical meeting you will taste 6 wines – usually 3 whites and 3 reds. Members of the club volunteer to host each evening, select the wines and provide some tasting notes to illuminate your wine tasting experience – nibbles are provided to prevent this experience going to your head too quickly! Don’t worry about having to volunteer, there is no pressure to do so, and you will soon see how easy it all is.
You get all of this for only £7 per head per meeting to cover the cost of the wine and hall rental. So why not give it a try: you will quickly make new friends, find wines to suit your taste and pocket – and you can walk home at the end of the evening. There are no annual subscriptions and any funds accumulated over the year goes to subsidise the cost of the wine at our end of term dinner (you bring your own food!).
You can just come along on the night, but for newcomers it would help the hosts get the numbers right if you could let us know you intend coming. So, please contact Alex Buchan on 01768 88220 or better still e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us.
We have about 30 regular members but we would like more, so you will be made very welcome if you do come along to try out the TSWT.
