Wine Tasting by Majestic Wine

We are very grateful to MAJESTIC WINE in Welwyn Garden City for offering to host a private tasting for us which will be based upon their showcase wines for Christmas. There will also be a one off opportunity to order wines at a special discount on the evening. These can be delivered free of charge on a later date.

7pm start. You are welcome to arrive from 6.30pm for browsing. Cost: £5.

Following the tasting we have reserved a private area at the nearby Bakehouse where we will be having a bite to eat together. We will take advantage of their special 2 for £10 offer.

You are welcome to join us for one or the other activity, or both. Please contact Nigel Jeffery by Thursday 15th November – (nigel.jeffery@welwyntwinning.org) to confirm your participation.
