[people] Membership

Joining the Society

Winery We warmly welcome anyone with an interest in wine, whether complete beginner or passionate wine enthusiast. No prior knowledge is ever assumed as the Society aims to teach members all they need to develop a love of wine. Undergraduates, graduates and tutors are equally welcome and we are also able to accept a small number of non-university members each year.

Every term we host some of the world's most famous wineries, offering unique tastings and exclusive access to many of the leading figures in the international wine trade. We set no entry requirements and the membership charge offers extremely good value for money!
