December 2013 Meeting at the AC Wine Club

Next week is the first Wednesday of the month and so the AC Wine Club will meet once more.

Wednesday 4th December 8.00pm at the Ardclough Village Centre

Grapes ripening in an Abbey Farm Celbridge backgarden 2013
Last month we had a great session where principal grape types were shown through a combination of wines that I use for my Two Hour Wine Tasting Course. It created such a good buzz around the place that I was asked were we meeting every week!

Next week I thought we might discuss sparkling wines. Let's face it we won't be meeting again until after New Years has been rung in.

Then I decided to do this by looking at Prosecco only! Should be interesting. I'll have a line up of various sparkling wines from the Veneto in northern Italy. Hope you like bubbles!

As the bottom of a bottle of wine is always limiting I would appreciate advance bookings to either or to 0876919191

The AC Wine Club has a New Venue

Earlier this month the Ardclough Community Council took over the recently emptied school house in Ardclough. The new St Annes NS was finally opened. In association with the VEC the Community Council has now begun a series of courses ranging from 'Computers for the Terrified' to 'Yoga'. I dropped in this morning to look at the old school with a view to using it as a venue for the Ardclough Wine Club (otherwise known and the AC Wine Club).  It's perfect.

The astute, observant and possibly wary, of you will know that the Club didn't meet at all last year. I know. Not at all! Not very good. As all good politicians say though, let's move forward and get the Club going again.   

I propose to market the idea that we meet on the first Wednesday of each month at 8.00pm beginning on Wednesday the 6th November.

As before there will be a nominal charge on the evening of €5.00
I will supply glassware and wines until we organise a better system
Leave a message of interest for me on 0876919191 or indeed at

If there is sufficiant interest I also intend to begin weekly Wine Appreciation courses up in Ardclough in the New Year. Ardclough; a wine hub? Absolutely.
