Welcome to the Wine Association of North Durham T

The wine club was formed from members of  Vigo, Fatfield and Hadrian wine Clubs who like to taste  and  home made and commercial wines, sprits, beers and ciders.
We enjoy learning about the grape varieties, counties of origin and any other interesting facts associated with these drinks. Our food matching  nights are very popular and so is the murder night where we act out a ‘murder ‘whilst tasting wines.

Some  members make and show wines, ciders, meads and beers .
We love passing on our knowledge to others so they can make or just enjoy these drinks.
We meet  every 3rd Wednesday at Barley Mow community Association at 7.45pm building which is behind the Barley Mow Pub in Birtley.

Email to us  for more information.
