All the paraphernalia associated with the love of the grape will be examined.

Who can deny that the drinking of wine is among the most pleasureable of pursuits? The lecture will cover the functional but intrinsically beautiful wine related items such as drinking glasses, decanters, bottle labels, bin labels and corkscrews. The day will finish with a 'Roadshow' when members can bring along old corkscrews or other wine related items for John to present and discuss
