Aston Wine Club – January 2022
Aston Wine Club has been established for more than 25 years, and is probably one of the best local wine clubs in the country! Our aim is to have fun socializing with friends and enjoy tasting wine from all over the world. It provides the opportunity to taste unusual & sometimes very expensive wines outside of the wines that we might normally imbibe. With old and new world, still & sparkling, red, white, rosé and orange, we have a really varied & interesting tasting programme.
We meet on the third Friday evening of most months in Buckland Village Hall, where you will be welcomed with a glass of wine in advance of a relaxed, fun and informative evening, led by a wine merchant, wine writer, wine educator or other expert. We sample eight wines with a break for a light supper after the first four, then on to the last four wines. All this for a whopping £15 for members and £20 for guests!
We like to keep things lively and over the years we have enjoyed trips to Waddesdon Manor for private tastings in their cellars, fish n’ chip & champagne evenings, members’ nights where members introduce their personal favourite, presentations focusing on certain countries or regions within a country, and special Christmas events with a meal.
A couple of quotes from our members:
“Coming to the club has expanded my horizons and introduced me to lots of wines I would never have tried before – and not all of them expensive! I have learned never to have preconceived ideas about any wine producing country and that price is not always an indication of a good wine. It’s all down to your own personal taste – there is no such thing as a right choice.”
“I have always enjoyed drinking wine but had become a little stuck in my ways and would typically always drink my go-to favourites. Wine Club has been fantastic in expanding my knowledge of different wines and enabling me to now enjoy a much wider variety of wine regions and grapes.”
