We meet on the second Thursday of the month unless otherwise indicated.
Wines of Brazil
Nicholas Corfe returns to showcase his company's range of wines from Brazil that are largely ignored by supermarket buyers, yet provide interesting and good value wines
The Winter Dinner
We will again return to the South Wilts Cricket Club Salisbury that so successfully hosted our winter dinner in March 23. Maestro Kenny Jelfs will again preside.
Primitivo - Zinfandel - two sides of the same coin
DNA analysis has shown that the vines and grapes from Primitivo in Southern Italy and Zinfandel from California are one and the same. Yet they produce wines of very different styles. Frank Smith will try to find out why!
Romania and its neighbours
Charlie Doyle and Mark Brandon will explore this old wine producing country that is starting to export more to the UK and presents a source of value classic varieties as well as lesser known blends
Wines the French want to keep to themselves! - Joie de Vin
Tim North from this specialist merchant based in Winchester will give us a tasting of his French range showcasing unusual and rarer wines not often found in the UK
Wines of SW France

Off the Beaten Track
The Wine Society has put together a dozen wines from lesser known or newly developed areas in the vinous world for members to explore. Kerry Attwell Thomas will be our guide
The Summer Dinner
We are likely to return to Coombe Bissett Village Hall that so successfully hosted last summer's dinner. Maestro Kenny Jelfs will again preside.
Australia makes a lot of wine at all price points but their quality wines are not often at premium prices. Bob Male will explore mainly Western Australia to show us some examples.
The Beaujolais region has been often thought of the country cousin of Burgundy, but it no longer deserves its reputation of undemanding red wines to glug as soon as bottled. John Muggleton will show a range of wines with some sourced from the vineyards. They will include a white, simple Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages and 4/5 of the Beaujolais Crus
Robert Boutflower from Tanners of Shrewsbury returns again to show his extensive South American portfolio, introducing bargain entry level well made wines as well as more premium offerings.
The Rhone Valley
The Rhone Valley produces a wide variety of white and red wines outside the deservedly popular Châteauneuf du Pape. Kerry Attwell Thomas and Nick Hodgson will be our guides.
