Welcome to the Wimborne Wine Society Website

"In Pursuit of Grapeness"


as at 25th March 2020

Further to the recent notification of the cancellation of our April meeting,

PLEASE NOTE, In view of the continuing Coronavirus crisis and associated restrictions on public gatherings the WWS meetings for May and June 2020 will not take place.  In order to maintain a spirit of optimism we are hoping that by July some semblance of normality may have been restored so we may be able to have our annual gathering at Pamphill Village Hall, with wine, cheese, salad, and socialising - we may well have a lot of catching up to do in that respect!  We will keep the website as up-to-date as possible with any changes to this plan.

So, as it stands ... hopefully we will be able to meet at Pamphill on 1st July 2020 as published in our programme.

WWS Committee, 25/3/20

Coronavirus update

Regretfully, in view of the present issues regarding pandemic Covid-19, and government guidelines regarding social gatherings, we have to announce that the April 2020 meeting of the Wimborne Wine Society has been cancelled. This is a shame, as we always enjoy Michaela's informative presentations on the wines of her native Germany, and of course we will try to have her back as soon as possible in the future.

We will be notifying members by EMail accordingly, and apologise if any addresses are not up-to-date.   At present we have no plans to cancel the May 2020 meeting but of course we will keep a watching brief on the situation and advise members of any subsequent changes to our meeting programme.

Wimborne Wine Society started life as a Wine Circle in 1967 when 13 local winemakers met to share information with each other about wine making techniques.

Eventually the Circle joined The Dorset Federation which had over 20 circles from all over Dorset as members. Home wine making then became less popular and many Wine Circles lost membership and closed down. With this in mind the Wimborne Wine Society was born in October 2003 aiming to enable members to enjoy and learn about commercial wines in a relaxed and informal way.


Since then the Society has grown its membership to become one of the most successful in Dorset.

The Society usually meets on the first Wednesday of each month at the Allendale Centre where members enjoy a wine tasting/presentation by a guest speaker or by another member. There are also social events such as a Christmas Party and Skittles evenings.

Our meetings are usually held on the first Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm at:

The Quarterjack Suite

Allendale Community Centre

Wimborne BH21 1AS
