What we're about

Lovely ladies of the Fylde Coast, Manchester and Cheshire, listen up - this Meetup could be for you! Do you enjoy a love affair with wine? Do you want to learn more about it without the expense and pretence? Do you want to meet fellow wine worshippers and do a spot of socialising or networking? Then what are you waiting for? Every month or so a group of us will gather at a venue and each participant will bring a bottle of carefully selected wine. We'll share what we like about the wine as well as a few little facts about where the wine comes from - either from the merchant or a little internet research. Once we have tasted each bottle, we will vote on our favourite. I am no sommelier, just as many a book club host hasn't a Man Booker, but I think it's a great a way of learning about 'grape' wines (soz, scraping the barrel ;-)). I'll also arrange a small buffet at every event - I'm promoting responsible drinking here and we'll probably need a few palate pleasers so as not to cause too many light heads. Aside from wine tasting nights, I'll also organise nights out/wine tasting nights in Manchester - with these events 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. Great networking/business partnership ops too.

But the one thing that connects us all apart from wine? We're all chuffin' awesome and successful in our own right, so let's celebrate that too - why not!

Just a wee note: I have lots of messages from our male counterparts asking why it's only a group for gals - sorry laddos, nothing personal. No, we're not a bunch of men haters - we love you (sometimes!) and we're not a group of cackling witches who dance around a cauldron of wine either (someone said this one) Really? Must we go there?

Finally, as the old adage goes: 'age is just a number'. There is no age limit here - you just have to be a lady and like wine :-)

Sound good? Sign up!

Looking forward to seeing you soon Wineetas!
