Wine Appreciation 1
It is aimed at people who enjoy drinking wine and would like to share their knowledge and/or know a bit more about it - whilst not taking it too seriously!
Each member hosts and runs a session on a topic of their choosing, at a venue of their choosing (usually their home). The topic can be anything wine-related. This isn’t an expert-led group but a co-operative of people who are happy to share knowledge and even do a little work to educate the rest of us.
One by one members organise and deliver the session. That would include any research required, the prep of any relevant materials, the acquisition of suitable wines and the selection and management of the venue. The venue could be their house, another member’s, a friends’ or somewhere completely different.
The wines are sampled before, during or after the session as decided by the session Organiser. The wines are be paid for by those attending (usually £5 each).
We normally have around 10 people per session and each person consumes, on average, 1-1 ½ glasses of wine. Transport is arranged and managed accordingly. Some venues are in central Exmouth allowing most members to walk to and from the session.
