Each meeting has a theme suggested by the member hosting, such as Wines from South Africa, and members attending the event must bring an appropriate wine and some food to go with it. Food should either complement the wine chosen or follow the same theme as the wine.

Members attending are divided into 6 roughly equal groups so that 3 groups will choose a red wine and the other 3 a white. We aim to restrict attendance sizes to 12-14 at each meeting (occasionally 16 according to the hosting capacity) and the wine pricing should ideally be in the range £10 to £12 a bottle.

Members are expected to do a little research so they can introduce the wine they are bringing, giving a brief background of its origins and anticipated flavour. After all, the point of the exercise is to broaden our knowledge of the many different wines available and maybe learn something of the various wine regions throughout the world.

Following on from each meeting the leader prepares a short Newsletter with brief details of the wines sampled together with the price and source. This facilitates members purchasing more of any particular wines they enjoyed should they wish to do so.

Dates for your Diary
Thu Apr 9th Ann & Adrian. Entente Cordiale
April 2020 marks the 116 anniversary of the signing of the Entente Cordiale between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and the French Republic. The signing of this agreement on 8 April 1904 is said to have resulted in a significant improvement in Anglo - French relations. Adrian isn't sure that it entirely succeeded!

In recognition of the anniversary of this agreement the brief is to provide white wines from the UK and red wines from France.
