We meet 6 times per year and spend the evening learning a bit about wines and winemaking. We typically try 6 to 8 wines of an evening and usually provide a little food to wash them down. Why not come along to our next meeting?

Next Event

Is it all about the Malbec? - Fri 6 Oct
9th September 2017

Wine tasting with the Croughton Wine Appreciation Group at the Village Hall, Friday 6th October at 8pm. 

In recent tastings we have asked the important questions “Is it all about the Riesling?” and “Is it all about the Rioja?” and tasted great wines from Germany and Spain. In our next tasting we will be finding out “Is it all about the Malbec?”, so come and join us and find out about Malbec and what else Argentinian wines have to offer. 

Prices are £8 for members and £12 for guests. Please let us know in advance that you’re coming so we can ensure we have sufficient wine and cheese and other snacks. Email: croughtonwag@gmail.com or call Claire on 810987.

June 2017 - Is it all about the Rioja? 

Last year we asked “Is it all about the Riesling?” at our German wine tasting and so for our June event we asked the same of SPANISH wines, “Is it all about the Rioja?” There were two Riojas amongst the 8 wines.......but they were not the high score for the evening.
