The programme for 2018 has yet to be finalised.

It is hoped that in addition to members' own presentations, we will be able to arrange tastings/presentations from wine retailers.

We will also be looking into the possibility of tastings based on audio/video presentations from U3A or other sources.

Unless otherwise indicated, all meetings will be held on Tuesdays in The Studio, Audley St Elphins at 7.30 pm.

The group’s coordinator is Peter Hume who can be contacted by e-mail, by clicking on his name, or by telephone on 01629 823337.
