about

What you can expect if you join

Learn about New Zealand wines and wineries from people who work and breath wine; the winemaker, the winery owner, winery representatives, and other wine aficionados. During the monthly tastings compare the wines on offer with those you’ve had on your travels and share your experiences with wines, places and people you have met along the way.

Our meetings are on the 2nd Wednesday of each month starting about 7:45 pm and typically cover a range of 6 – 8 wines of a particular brand, range, region or varietal. These are brought to us by knowledgeable people passionate about the wines. During this time we strongly encourage members to participate and discuss the wines tasted, compare notes, and judge the wines for yourselves.

As part of the club experience, you get to purchase the wines tasted on the night which is often discounted just for us.

We also have some social events during the year including two dinners (mid-winter and Christmas), a barbeque in January and the AGM in May.
