Wine Group 1
Our ‘objective’ is ‘education in appreciation of wines, usually in a social environment’: so we meet for bi-monthly tastings, generally in St Mary’s Church Hall, Thornbury, on third Fridays at 6.30pm
In the intervening months there is usually a ‘wine related activity’, such as visiting a vineyard, a meal out, summer BBQ and also occasional coach trips to wine areas.
The group has been harvesting the grapes at Thornbury Castle for some years but since 2014 a sub-group has been in charge of all the vineyard work. An excellent learning experience which will continue in 2018.
At present both the wine group and the vineyard sub group are ‘at capacity’, and we have a short Waiting List.
