Full House at the Village Hall for a Christmas wine tasting

The Marsh Wine Club

The Marsh Wine Club’s Christmas  tasting at Horsington Village Hall on 1st December was a great success.

Over  40 people gathered to sample some excellent wines from all over the world, and to order them for their Christmas table.

Apart from the opportunity to sample over 20 different and excellent wines, it was also a great social occasion, and it was good to see the village hall being put to good use at last after a very  quiet period during the Covid  crisis.

A serious business!

The Marsh Wine Club is a year-old buying co-operative which provides the kind of wine you will not normally find in a supermarket, at very attractive wholesale prices. At the top end there are fine clarets and Rhone wines from France, sumptuous chiantis from Italy, and, lower down the scale, some very drinkable budget wines from Spain, Chile South Africa and Portugal. They are sourced from a reputable grower and shipper ,a major supplier to top restaurants.

From time to time the Club will organise tastings, social events, even dinners.

Jay Varcoe and Richard Gaunt prepare to welcome wine club members
