    BBQ – Derek’s place

    4:00 pm to late

    Venue: Derek’s place (see email for details)
    No Charge event
    BYO wine
    Food Your committee arrange the meat and salmon, and we ask participants to contribute by providing a salad or dessert, this should be sufficient for about eight people. This year we would ask that if your street address has an odd number, that you provide a dessert; and an even number, a salad.

    We have noted in recent years that newer members have not always attended this event.  I encourage you to do so. The weather does not matter, the venue has covered outdoor areas to suit any occasion, including rain. The BBQ is a great opportunity to mix and mingle so please think seriously about attending.

    Anne asks you to bring any screw caps along that you have been collecting over the holiday period.

Cost to members

We try to keep the cost to members as affordable as possible. Our subscriptions are $25/year, and our door charge is between $10 to $20 each event, depending on the support offered by the presenters, covers the cost of wines we are tasting on the night, light supper, room hire & presenter gifts.

Cellar Club Glasses

In an endeavour to reduce the amount of washing of club glasses, we just wanted to remind all members are expected to bring your own glasses to tastings. We recommend the standard 215ml wine taster glass as shown here. The club will continue to provide glasses for guests and the occasional club member who forgets.

If you wish to purchase 6 of these for $18, please contact Wayne and he will either drop them off to you or bring them to the next tasting. Sadly the suppliers of the glasses no longer provide boxed sets, so you will need to find/provide your own solution for taking them to and from tastings.

Forgotten corners: Boosting biodiversity on Marlborough vineyards

Winepress | Sophie Preece – 12/8/19 Thousands of “forgotten corners” in Marlborough vineyards could be planted with native species, enriching the region’s biodiversity. That might require a change in mindset for growers who like their rows straight and their fence lines sprayed, says Marlborough District Council environmental scientist Matt Oliver.
