Wine tasting





Welcome to G. W. A. S.


GWAS was formed in 1988 by a small group of villagers who shared a passion for wine. In those days it was an excuse for friends to get together in the village hall and sample the fruits of their own labours. After a while however, and realising that thier wine making skills were not improving, one brave member (Haydn Williams) dared to suggest that they tried appreciating ‘off the shelf’ wines.


Wine tasting in GrandboroughNowadays, GWAS is a friendly, informal group of some 100 plus members and until recently was hosted by Bruce Townsend. In January 2013, Bruce handed the mantle over to Ian Johns.
The meetings are fun and informative. We normally sample 7 wines with a plentiful supply of bread and cheese.

We meet about 6 times a year, with different members organising each one.
