This may be a digital age, and this may be The Society’s (online) Community, but that does not mean that we have forgotten the benefits of meeting face to face to get to know each other (and to taste wines!).
The community allows us to share ideas and stay in touch wherever we may be, but The Society still runs hundreds of tastings, meetings, dinners and training events each year and I would love to take advantage of these to meet you in person.
There are a few opportunities in the next couple of months that I’d love to add a ‘Community’ element to, so that we might bring virtual friends together in person, and I thought I would let you know about them.
Note: if you are planning on attending any of these, leave a comment below so other members can look out for you and maybe make plans to introduce themselves.
I can’t make this particular upcoming dinner myself, sadly, but @Tim_S has mentioned that there is a chance for a group of members to take a table at this well-loved Italian wine & food event here in Stevenage. If you are a fan of Italian wines and you’ve missed out on the previous events (that were sell-outs), do make sure you come along to this.
There are 50 wines to try and the producers are in town for the London Wine Fair. The trade event is a big and busy event, but the evening promises to be relaxed and informal and a great opportunity to chat with them, with Society staff but also to meet each other. I am planning on dedicating one of the exhibition tables to the community - so if you can make this evening’s event, do come and say hello.
3. Friday 25th May - Lunch at The Society (Special Event)
(there’s no booking link to this yet)
There is a special event happening on a Friday and there is the opportunity for us to take up to 2 tables (16 people). I will be attending and would love to meet you and join you on a tour of the warehouses, plus a 4 course lunch with wines and aperitif. I would love to hear your thoughts on the community and ways we can improve it further.
if you are interested in this event, leave a note below and I will send you a PM with booking details!!
The events are all ticketed separately, but once you’ve secured yours let us know so we can see who else is going and make our plans.
