The Upton Wine Appreciation Club
The Club, formed in 2005, provides village residents, their families and friends with informal monthly meetings at which we taste wines relating to a particular theme. Meetings are usually attended by thirty to fifty members, and eight wines are tasted with information provided by a speaker – often a Club member, otherwise a visiting professional. The meetings are intended to be informal and inclusive, providing an opportunity for members to socialise and for newcomers to the Village to be welcomed.
We typically meet in the Village Hall on the third Wednesday of the month, except for December when we meet a week earlier and July and August when we have a summer break. Meetings start at 8 p.m. and topics for forthcoming meetings are displayed on the Village website.
Full membership is open to all residents of Upton over the age of 18 years, their immediate families (children over the age of 18 years and parents), ex-residents of Upton and those closely associated with the village. Guest membership is available for invited guests of members, subject to an attendance limit of two meetings per Club year.
At present annual membership is £10.00 and Guest membership £2.00. The charge for each meeting varies between £5 and £10. New members are always welcome and if you are interested in joining please contact the Secretary.
