Welcome to the South of England's premier wine society.

The Winchester Wine Appreciation Society has been running for over 25 years, and we are a group of over 70 members comprising enthusiasts and small buyers, with a knowledge of wine ranging from reasonable to excellent.

A carefully crafted programme of tutored tastings and social events is prepared annually. Whether you are new to wine tasting or already have an in-depth knowledge of wines from around the world, this programme should provide something to interest you. Understanding what goes into making good wine will greatly increase our appreciation of what comes out of the bottle.

There are opportunities to compare the finesse of classic old-world wines with the big flavours of new-world wines with their growing reputations. Sharing our pleasures, experiences and learning with other like-minded people in the convivial atmosphere of the Wessex Hotel's Wykeham Suite, will add value to each event.

If you would like to know how you can get involved with the Society, please contact me directly.

Cheers, Santé, Prost, Salud…
