Paul Tate-Smith presents Wines of Chile and Argentina


The North Yorkshire Wine Society (NYWS) has been in existence since 1972, its purpose and emphasis being on the exploration and enjoyment of a wide variety of wines. There is something of interest for everyone from beginners to experts, and all the major wine areas of the world are covered in a relaxed atmosphere. 
We aim to have 10 “tasting meetings” per year, plus a Summer party and a Christmas dinner. 
The annual subscription is £25 per person, and the charge for tasting meetings is £15. Bring your own supper.
