The Society was formed in 1978 by a group of home wine and beer enthusiast members. Times change, and with the advent of cheap good quality supermarket wines the number of wine makers has now considerably reduced.
The section, which meets on the second Friday each month, has developed more into a wine and food appreciation Society. We hold popular wine tastings at regular intervals plus talks on food, along with a wide range of topics of general interest. Annual party nights, when we have dinner, plus entertainment and our Vice President’s evening when we ‘push the boat out’ are very popular.
