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 their wine making skills were not improving, one brave member ‘Haydn Williams’ dared to suggest that they tried appreciating commercial wines.
Nowadays, GWAS is a friendly, informal group of some 90 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 plentiful supply of bread and cheese. We meet about 6 times a year, with different members organising each one.
