UPCOMING EVENTS


The judgement of Swindon
Saturday 27th April 2019

In 1976, a high profile wine tasting event, known as The Judgement of Paris, pitted a selection of French clarets against the upcoming wineries of California. To the dismay of the French, the Californian wines won!

Now, over 40 years later, Swindon folk are invited to recreate the tension and excitement in its very own Judgement of Swindon! Raising funds for the Eastcott Community Organisation, the event involves a blind tasting of six red wines from Bordeaux and California.

Let's see which side of the Atlantic will be victorious.

No wine tasting experience is necessary; everyone (over 18) is welcome to come and enjoy this informal sociable event. The price includes six glasses of red wine, plus cheese and biscuits.

Savernake Street Social Hall, 7pm
