Wine Appreciation (SWAG)

If you are interested in wine, then you might like to join this new group. SWAG (Stanway Wine Appreciation Group) will meet every other month initially - dates, times and venues to be confirmed.

At each meeting any of the following could happen:-

  • tasting a particular grape variety from different countries
  • tasting wines from a particular country - there are plenty to choose from, well over 90 and counting
  • Old World versus New World - tasting and comparing wines made from the same grapes but from different parts of the world
  • My Taste Is - hearing from a member about what their taste in wine is, and of course tasting their choices
  • red versus white wine
  • seasonal wines - what works well in each season
  • matching food with wine - this might include a meal and/or a local tutored tasting
  • visiting local vineyards and wine merchants for tastings and seeing how wines are produced

How will the sessions work?

Each session will include a number of tastings (25ml of each wine) and simple snacks such as water biscuits. Water will also be provided.

Costs for a tasting session should be no more than £10 per session but for meals/visits and tutored tastings this will be more.

If you are interested in this group please use the Bluebird contact button at the side of the page to send a message to the Group Leader.
