Welcome To Horspath Wine.Club f
The club consists of a number of people (averaging 25 members per month), mainly from Horspath and the surrounding area, who meet once a month to taste six different wines based on varied themes (grape, region, style etc) and to enjoy good food and a social evening together.
The wine tasting is either presented by one of the members or by guest speakers. The tastings are held in "The Hub", Horspath, but from time to time the group also visits other venues.
The tastings are held on the third Wednesday of each month, 7.30-9.30pm, with 30 minutes either side for members to lay-out and pack-up furniture (or to finish off the wine!) etc.
To become a member, simply provide your details on the Contact page and we’ll be in touch.
We look forward to seeing you there.
June Special: Opening Up Eastern Europe
There was a time when you could only give Eastern European wines to people you didn't like. Even now many people ignore the growing number of quality wines coming from this part of the World. Western countries claim themselves to be old-World wine countries, yet countries like Georgia were making wine 8000 years ago. It just wasn't very good :) As such, countries such as Turkey, Hungry and Georgia are really old-World wine countries also.
In recent years many of these countries, including Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia and Georgia have harnessed the new technologies and techniques available for winemakers and are now becoming renowned for their quality wines.
We'll trying a sampling of white and red wines from some of these countries to see for ourselves how the quality has increased (or not).
