The aim of this Group is to bring wine lovers together, to learn about the fascinating world of wine, spirits and more. The evenings are informative, fun and convivial. This is therapy of the liquid kind! You will learn how to taste and to discover new and unusual wines, as well as appreciating new facts about well-known wines.
The tastings are tutored by Luisa Welch, a wine educator who holds the Wine and Spirit Education Trust Diploma in Wine and Spirits. Luisa is also a wine judge at international competitions and a freelance wine writer. She is supported by Vivienne Smith, who has had a keen interest in wine for many years, has toured many wine regions around the world, and actively attends wine events.
The group will meet in Muswell Hill, in the home of Vivienne Smith, who has kindly offered her home to get the Group started. As the Group develops and gets established, the idea will be to rotate the venue. We also plan to offer visits to restaurants, trips to vineyard … and much more. Join us and discover the joys of good imbibing!
The cost will be in the region of £15 per person, to include 5 or 6 quality wines for the tasting, plus two bottles for drinking afterwards, when a light buffet supper will be provided by our host. Glasses, jugs, and crackers are all included in the cost. You are invited to bring your own notebook and pen.
As costs are incurred in advance in buying the wine and food, it is important that members are prepared to commit to attending regularly.
