Wine Tasting EveningMember event

We would like to invite you and one non-member guest to an evening of Tutored Wine Tasting preceded by a Guided Tour of Trinity Hall, Aberdeen on 29 November between 5.30pm and 9pm.

As our cars are mostly manufactured in Germany, we will take a journey through a diverse and surprising selection of German wines, led by Carol Brown of Wine Uncorked Education. Carol is a member of the Association of Wine Educators and the Circle of Wine Writers. She has been talking, teaching, tasting and writing about wine in Aberdeen and around Scotland for a number of years. Carol is an Approved Programme Provider and tutor for the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) and has a regular wine feature in the Press and Journal and the Courier.

We will also take the opportunity to share the rich history of the Seven Incorporated Trades of Aberdeen during a tour of their Trinity Hall HQ. This will be led by Bruce Campbell who, until recently, was their Deacon Convener. Bruce will show us around their impressive building and share stories covering a number of areas including the mission of The Seven Incorporated Trades of Aberdeen, which exists to:

  • Deliver on its historically grounded commitments to skills, people development and education;
  • The care and wellbeing of its members and their dependents;
  • Raise and disburse funds for the advancement of young persons living in the Aberdeen community;
  • Maintain and provide access to the historical artefacts of the trade crafts of Aberdeen.

Guests are to arrive from 5.30 pm. A glass of wine or a non-alcoholic drink will be provided upon arrival. The tour starts at 6 pm sharp. The wine tasting will commence at 7 pm accompanied by cheese, crackers and water. The event will finish by 9 pm to allow timely access to public transport home. Doors close at 9.30 pm. If you'd like to drive, on-street parking is available nearby and spittoons will be provided.

As we need to commit to people, facilities and costs up-front, we kindly ask that you provisionally book here. Members plus friends very welcome. We expect tickets to be around £30 / head, depending on final numbers. Once we have the final go-ahead, we will confirm prices and seek deposits.

Kind regards,
Mike on behalf of the R2 Pit Crew
