The Weird and Wonderful – Unexpected Wines from Unusual Places

The Weird & Wonderful Wine Tasting has been moved to 6 May, which is a really good thing as it’s even bigger and better than originally planned. There will be 11 different wines (15 different grape varieties) and fabulous food to accompany the wines. This is a perfect chance to try some wines that are absolutely delicious and great with food that you really should know about.

We will also be celebrating the anniversary of the Wine Century Club with president and founder, Steve de Long. For those of you unfamiliar with the Wine Century Club (, it’s an association of wine lovers who have tried AT LEAST 100 different wine varieties over their drinking lives. That might sound daunting at first but just drinking the readily available wines in the UK will get you a long way toward that 100. And if you attend this tasting, you’ll have another 15 to add to your “life list”.

This will be a ton of fun. Learn about Petit Rouge, Saperavi, Pecorino (NOT the cheese!), Frappato, the nearly unpronounceable Hondarribi Zuri, and many more. Taste wines from Spain, Portugal, France, Italy and Georgia (!??!). You know you have to do this.

Details are -
