Club Information


History and Purpose
The Society was founded in 1975 and has been meeting regularly in the Maidstone area. At the meetings a range of Wines are presented for tasting. The topic for the Wines may be a country e.g. Italy; grape varieties e.g. Pinot Noir; or a range from a Wine Company. These are introduced by a visiting Wine Specialist. After tasting members discuss the qualities of the Wines.

We are a group of about 40 people and we meet once a month on the second Tuesday in The Grange Moor Hotel. It is best to park behind the hotel and enter the hall at the back of the hotel for the meeting. We are not all Wine expects and come to learn more about Wine in a friendly atmosphere.

The current programme is in the next column.

Members have varied degrees of knowledge from a near novice to members with a greater depth of understanding that are willing to chat and share their experiences.

Members bring their own glasses and some also bring biscuits and cheese as well.
