Social Wine Club

Social Wine Club

The last few Social Wine Club nights have been very successful – we had Clear View Vineyard from Napier in July and Mills Reef from Tauranga in August.

September's Wine club will go ahead as planned without a guest speaker – the guy we had organised has just become a dad for the first time so is unavailable but we have rebooked him for February next year.

New members - If you are not already on our Wine Club list and want to join up, please just email me.
