Come and join us! We always welcome new members. Our regular evening get-togethers are a great way to learn about and enjoy all aspects of wine in convivial settings in the Brighton/Worthing area
SWAS was established 44 years ago and has evolved over the years. We are an eclectic assortment of like-minded folk who all enjoy good company and good wines. We try to meet on the first Saturday of each month in the comfort of members' homes in the Brighton/Worthing area to taste good wines and share good food. No one is ever obliged to host a tasting and you can attend only those evenings that you would like to. Current annual membership is just £3.00 for an individual and £5.00 for a couple, membership renewal is on 1st December each year. There is a charge per head for each event just to cover the cost of the wine and food but we are non-profit making. Lack of wine knowledge or experience is absolutely no barrier to joining!
Due to the current Covid-19 situation we have to comply with Government advice so, sadly, Alex & Bill's Tasting in Worthing on 4th April 2020 has been cancelled as has Claire & Mike's that was planned for 2nd May and Sally & Peter's on 6th June. Hopefully we can reschedule some of these to later in the year. In the meantime...
Virtual Tasting Events...!
An experiment attempted on Sunday 12th April was very successful when Bill & Billy hosted a 'Virtual SWAS Tasting' using the Zoom on-line conference software. Twelve members & friends took part and thanks are due not only to the hosts but to all the participants! There is a good chance that such a Virtual Tasting will be repeated, maybe even on a weekly basis.
A second event took place at 1pm on Sunday 3rd May and a third at 1pm on Sunday 10th May.
Virtual Tasting #4 Sunday 24th May at 1.00 pm: 'Pinot Noir' - Fourteen members joined in
Virtual Tasting #5 Sunday 31st May at 7.00 pm: 'White Burgundy' - again 14 members joined in
Virtual Tasting #6 Sunday 7th June at 7.00 pm: 'Cabernet Sauvignon' - let Bill know via our mailing list should you want to be involved and he'll send you a link just before the start time.
All members can now be contacted at the same time using our new 'Mailing-list' email address: email@example.com
