Wine Tasting 1
Wine Tasting 1 meets on the Second MONDAY in the month at 7.00 p.m. We are a group of enthusiasts who want to learn more about wine. None of us are experts. We share our views of the wines tasted at our meetings. We want to find new wines which we want to taste again, as well as enjoying known favourites.
