EVENTS

The club organises three types of events:

An introduction to each type of event is shown under the respective menu to the left. Upcoming events and various historical details of past events are shown below.

At events, members score the wines out of seven points.  At the end of the evening, a vote is taken on the wine scores and then the prices of the wines are announced.  When the wine is from the Club's cellar, the original cost price is given as well as a current market price. The Summaries section contains the votes and prices from previous events.

Bookings for upcoming events can be made either online and paid for by bank transfer, or by post and paid for by cheque or bank transfer.

Historical details are provided as a record to show the range of events we provide for members.
