The meetings take place in members' homes. From June 2015 the maximum number of members attending should not exceed 18. However occasionally this number could be exceeded if the hosting member feels that they could accommodate more members comfortably. Most members offer to accommodate 12-16 members when they host an evening.

The host chooses the theme for the evening, ie. country, region etc. The intention is to have 6 wines for tasting per evening. This means that occasionally members will be placed into groups and the members of any one group will bring the same wine. The cost of the wine should be between £8 - £10 upwards. Additionally each couple (or single member) will bring a plate of food from the themed country or region to compliment the wine brought. This has become almost as important as the wine and members do try and present unusual foods of the country of the evening. No pressure there!

As each wine is being tasted the member who brought the wine will tell the other members about the wine and the area from which it originated. The ability to use Google comes in handy here. Otherwise you could just read the label but expect some barracking if you do.

On completion of the tastings the shared table is opened as are the remaining wines. Members can avail themselves of any of the wines brought so it’s important to remember which wine you liked best during the tastings. The rest of the evening is spent in a sociable and friendly atmosphere.
