The Rottingdean Wine Club organises visits and trips to places of interest including of course vineyards. Certainly the South of the UK and especially the South-East have many vineyards and is a rich source of sparkling and increasingly still wines. We will be visiting some of these in 2019.
The Club is affiliated to the Sussex Federation of Winemakers and from time to time the Federation arranges visits and seminars in which we take part. Seaford and Eastbourne wine clubs also arrange visits and we are kindly invited to come along.
The events for this year are or have been:
February 1 – 3 Seminar at the Haddon Hall Hotel, Eastbourne (Sussex Federation)
February 13 Seaford Blatchington Golf Club dinner 7pm. Further details from Ken Lloyd on 01323 896899 or at the Rottingdean Wine Club meeting on January 10.
