Romsey & District

Wine Appreciation

We meet: At Carers Together off Love Lane, on the second Thursday of the month, 7pm until 9pm.

Coordinator: Derek Morley

Our Activities: The aim of the group is to develop our knowledge and skills of the tasting of wines by regular lead tastings and vineyard visits.

There is a joining fee of £5.00 per person for membership of the wine group. In addition there is a charge of £5.00 per person per evening for those attending, which covers the cost of the wines being tasted. We usually taste 6 wines per evening.

Our capacity is 25 members has been reached so have a waiting list. If that becomes too large maybe a second group could be started.

The majority of evenings are led by members of the group! To date we have tasted red and white Rioja from Spain, wines from Chile & Argentina, Albania and Portugal, as well as learnt the difference between Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and tasted Sauvignon Blanc from around the world. We visited Settley Ridge and Hambledon vineyards, had 2 fun quizzes and a delightful summer BBQ ! We are a relaxed and informal group!
