Bramhope Wine Appreciation Group

We are a group of like-minded people who are interested in wine. We taste wine to sort the good from the bad, (and we don't always agree which is which!) We enjoy learning about wine - and last but certainly not least - we love wine.

The group has been in existence for over twenty years now and has changed from a local authority run night school to a meeting of friends with a shared interest in drinking wine at reasonable prices.

OK so occasionally we push the boat out and have an expensive tasting, but as we have a basic cost of 5 per tasting this is absorbed by savings.

We all club together to pay the annual rent and this works out at 30 per person per year.

We meet in the upstairs room at the Robert Craven Memorial Hall on the 3rd Tuesday of the month (except August) - in the evening at 7.30pm.

New members are always welcome - don't worry that you won't know enough about wine - that's what we are all there for, to learn. And no matter how long we have been coming, we are all still learning!

If you would like to hear more about us, or come to a meeting to try us out, you can contact us on e-mail:- Jill Thorley

Or by telephone: 0113 264 5501

Don't be shy - give us a try!



Although we had a fine day for our garden party this year it was not warm enough to be outside all the time. However the members who were hosting us generously opened their house so we could enjoy all the super foods that had been brought. There was also a rather good selection of wines (of course) which started, as usual, with champagne. It is always a special day looked forward to by everybody. We now have our summer break and will be back to “work” in September. Why not join us in 2014?


Here are a few pictures taken then:
