Wine Society

Meetings are normally held in the Stradbroke Community Centre and start at 7.30 pm.  Membership for next year runs from September 2017 to September 2018. Please contact Gwyneth Harris, our Treasurer, for a membership form if you would like to join. Her address is: 16, Woodfields, Stradbroke, Eye, Suffolk IP21 5JQ and her phone number is 01379 388089. It costs £5 for an individual or £8 for a family. 

The only remaining date for 2017 for your diary is  December 2nd.

The dates for 2018 are: January 20th, April 7th, June 16th, September 15th, October 27th, December 8th.

For each meeting you will receive a booking form about three weeks before the due date. This form gives a description of the tasting to be offered, indicates who will be the speaker and also gives the cost of the meeting. Members may also invite guests and the cost for them is normally £2 more per person than members pay.


The photograph above shows some vines from Chateau Margaux, the wines from which we have not yet tasted.  However, we have had other wines from all over the world introduced to us by experts or enthusiastic amateurs. It is an excellent way to expand your knowledge of which wines you really do like and which, sadly, you do not. Apart from more formal wine tasting evenings with a speaker, there is also a variety of different kinds of social evenings focussed around wine. We have occasional group meals out and in the distant past there were even three coach trips to France.
