We meet on the second Thursday of the month unless otherwise indicated.
World Class Chardonnay and Claret
Chardonnay has been unfairly denigrated and white wines have been recently missing from SWIG's line up. Nick Beard will change all this. To complement the whites he has chosen some reds from Bordeaux and a surprise bargain - something for everyone to enjoy he hopes.
The Cote de Nuits
Mark and Frank's tour of the Côte d'Or will continue with an examination of the Côte de Nuits said to be the apogee (and most costly!) of red Burgundy, finding relative bargains from less famous appellations as well as the odd more extravagant bottle. Judge for yourself what the fuss is all about. The 2022 AGM will follow the tasting. £25
A Master of Wine's Guide to wine
Mark Lynton MW, a past buyer for Waitrose, now runs his own wine business. He specialises in well made, good value wines, and will present a selection to SWIG. He will outline the important steps in wine making and how they may be optimally managed by the maker.
Grant Berry from Yapp will guide us through their extensive and interesting collection of Loire wines
