This is a new diversion and venue for the Wine Club. The Port House established in The Strand about 3 years ago is fast becoming a venue to visit. Our evening will be hosted by Carollan O’Brien who is passionate about her subject. We will be having an interesting adventure and then a collation of Tapas accompanied by wine to complete the evening.
