Gotherington Wine Club

Established for over 40 years and run by members, we have grown into a real community group. It’s a great starting place to meet other people in the Village so we would highly recommend our Wine Club to newcomers.

Invitation

Come for a Taster Evening as our guest and try us out for just £5 payable on the night.

We are a great mix of friendly Gotherington (and beyond) folk who enjoy a few glasses of wine together followed by a a light ploughman’s supper. It’s a non-profitmaking social evening of fun, in a very relaxed atmosphere, which is centred around a different wine related topic each time. We meet once a month (3rd Tuesday of the month 7.30pm for 8pm start) in the Village Hall. We are not stuffy in any way – we don’t sell wines and we certainly don’t offer spitoons!
