Wine Appreciation Group (WAG)
|Frequency:||Friday evening - every other month.|
|Time:||7.30 - 10.30 p.m.|
|Venue:||Longhirst Village Hall or various members' homes.|
The group holds informal wine tastings usually every other month on a Friday evening. There is also a joint Dinner held with the Food Appreciation Group in Longhirst Village Hall every November.
Tastings are always more of a social gathering than any pretence of taking wine related issues too seriously, but we know good wines from poor ones! Tasty refreshments are also an essential part of the enjoyment of the evening.
Members volunteer to host an event roughly once every two or three years and, where their homes can accommodate 24 or more, they may choose to hold them at home, otherwise we use Longhirst Village Hall. Occasionally we may invite a local wine merchant along to offer us a selection of their wares and further our education of the more technical aspects of wine production and the numerous varieties available.
New members are very welcome at any time.
