Like all our groups COVID put a stop to our wine group meetings. Shame! Our last meeting being early March 2020 before the pandemic took hold. When legally allowed in 2001 we met outside in the garden. Fortunately, the weather was was favourable and it was lovely to see everyone enjoying [...]

Wine Group Christmas Party 2018

My apologies for the lateness in putting the photographs of the Wine Group Christmas Party on the website. Tiara’s and tinsel were the theme for this years’ wine tasting Christmas party. Everyone made a great effort and looked very glamorous (even the men). The party started off on a quietish note [...]

Wine Tasting Christmas Party

Our wine tasting group meets on the first Thursday of each month. There are twenty members in the group. Unfortunately, to date, we can't accommodate any new members as holding a discussion with twenty already proves difficult once a glass or two of wine has lubricated the tongues of some! We [...]

  Our last tasting of 2015, I think it was the best tasting yet! Nineteen of us gathered at our usual spot on a rather windy winter’s night. Gordon yet again has worked wonders, for our delight and tasting, he pulled out of the bag 9 bottles of champagne, 2 of [...]

An evening at the Newcastle Wine School

Seventeen members of the Wine Tasting Group paid an evening visit to the Newcastle Wine School, where we enjoyed food from a tasting menu. The food was very good, the beef was just a little overdone, but this did not spoil a thoroughly enjoyable evening! The choice of wine was paired [...]

Thank you George and Carol for last night. A lively night, but that is usually the case. Some interesting names to the wines. Hard to pronounce some! Thanks again. Gordon   We tasted five wines, the first four were well received and the majority of our group liked the first white [...]

The wine tasting group continues to be an evening of fun and laughter whilst learning about new wines. We are now even starting to have food pairing tastings with selected wines. Our format of each member of the group taking it in turn to lead the group by selecting the wines [...]
