Ladies of the Fylde Coast, Manchester and Cheshire...do you enjoy a love affair with wine? Do you want to learn more about it without the expense and pretence? Do you fancy meeting fellow wine worshippers and do a spot of socialising or networking? Then sign up - this group's for you!
Every month or so a small number of us will gather at a venue, each bringing a bottle of carefully selected wine. We'll share what we like about the wine as well as a story about the wine and where it comes from - either from your experience, the wine merchant or a little internet research. Once we have tasted each bottle, we will vote on our favourite. I am no sommelier, but I think it's a great a way of learning about grape wines in a relaxed and unpretentious setting.
Aside from wine tasting nights, I'll also organise wine tasting nights out in Lytham, Manchester and beyond. I will work with the organisers to get the best possible deals for us all.
This really is a varied and great group of ladies - a mix of professions and life experiences which makes for interestingly diverse conversations/friendships.
Please note this group now has a team of 4 organisers since it covers all of the NW. Most events are hosted by me, but some are hosted by the group's other organisers. If you're keen to host regular events yourself, once you've joined please send me a message and I can pop you on the organisers list.
**Just a wee note: I receive A LOT of messages from our male counterparts asking why it's only a group for gals - sorry laddos, it's nothing personal. No, we're not a bunch of men haters - we love you (sometimes!) - but the group began as a female networking group.
Finally, as the old adage goes: age is just a number. There are lots of Meetup groups out there for specific age groups, but that doesn't apply here.
To join, you just have to be a lady and like wine. :-)
