Title: Where are YOU located ?
Post by fermentingtom on Apr 26th, 2010 at 11:57am
With the decline in "active" homebrew groups, this forum is an ideal way to contact each other "locally", perhaps with a view to "meeting up" or if visiting another area to meet a fellow member.
When adding your "details" please consider ADDING your LOCATION --quite a number of members ask about groups in their area , so this way it's an opportunity to "enlarge" your personal contacts .
F.A. could you mark this as a "voluntary prequesite " by highlighting ?  -- it may save a lot of "location" questions !
;) ;)
Thankyou,
F.T.

I live near Appleby-in-Westmorland, a very beautiful place, famous for the Whit monday race in May and the Horse fair in June (when all the locals go into hiding haha) not heard of any groups round here?

The object of this thread was so you could see at a glance where people are --if in "Your Signature" you place your "town" , it would be there for all to see  e.g. mine's "DUDLEY"

I'd like to mention the virtual wine circle for those who would like to have an ubiased opinion on their wines.  contact bob@winesathome.co.uk or on Facebook (Search for Virtual Wine Circle). 

We are also on Twitter at: VirtualWineO

It's a great way of getting an unbiased opinion on your wines, and have fun too! 

The Competition is June 11-13th, bottles must be in by June 6, which gives you a month's time! 

Contact us through the above ways, we'll get more info out to you!

Hi George  ;)

No problem as far as I'm concerned, we all have bad days and I've lost my rag a time or two too, although I don't think I've ever been quite as vehement, vitriolic or vituperative as you were on that fateful day.

Apology accepted, welcome back [smiley=beer.gif]

Now behave yourself.  ;D

BTW: It was good to meet you the other weekend.

Stick with it, but make sure you use the appropriate enzymes, not too much sugar to start, a good yeast and you'll brew your own forever.

Title: Looking for homemade wine members in Essex
Post by Robert A on Jul 20th, 2015 at 12:21pm
Hi , I am newly retired, and now I have the time I would like to take up again the hobby of making homemade wine.
I live in Maldon, Essex and have tried to find a local homemade wine group without success, all the ones listed on the NAWB site seemed to have either closed or turned into social groups tasting supermarket wines.
So are there any members nearby that I could swop notes with.

Moved from Test Posts by Moderator 20th July.

Title: ESSEX-- Anyone on the Forum ?
Post by Fermenting Tom on Jul 20th, 2015 at 10:11pm
Robert I don't know if any of these  are in close proximity to you, or still exist, your local Horticultural/Gardening/Allotment clubs sometimes have home made wine members, might be worth following up, that said, other than the Social meet up for a drink chat and comparison tastings, you'll get all the information you need on this Forum..........
  County of Essex
    Billericay Winemakers Circle
    Braintree Wine Circle
    Buckhurst Hill Wine & Beer Circle
    Colchester Cellar Club
    County Beermakers
    Danbury Wine Circle
    Halstead Winemakers
    Hutton Wine Circle
    Leyton Wine & Beer Circle
    North Romford Wine Circle
    Ongar Wine Circle
    Tolleshunt Knights with Tiptree Guild of Wine & Beermakers
        meets on 3rd Wednesday of the month
        contact Cliff Bayley for further information
    Upminster Wine & Social Club
    Wethersfield Wine Club
    Wickford Wine & Beer Circle
        Meets on 2nd & 4th Wednesday of each month
        Rawreth Parish Hall, Rawreth, near Wickford, Essex
Not being a member any longer of NAWB I don't have current membership details- hope this helps.
Maybe a forum member in your locality may respond.
;) ;)

Hi, I am in Maldon, Essex,
Would love to know of nearby groups or circles.
Sadly The Essex Federation of Wine Makers, no longer exists.

I appreciate that, however if any of those circles listed on the defunct NAWB list are near you, your Library may have some information.
Alternatively............
Phone in your local radio station asking if "Any local winemakers out there ?

B_B,
Sutton-Coldfield.
Sorry for the lateness responding, just spotted checking on somewhere else.
Bad news, the S-C Wine Circle closed about 2005, some transferred to Castle Bromwich, but that closed in 2011 -- old age and the death of the prime mover.
Check with Sue or Paul at your HB shop they would know talking to customers if a group exists.

V_T,
Likewise apologies -- you're right -- you are out beyond the sticks !!
Have looked at Club members of NAWB , none listed for Norfolk.

Sometimes in rural areas the local horticultural society have wine sections, you might try there, other than your library (if you have one)-- our council shut ours !!
