Wine Tasting

The Middlesex Hospital Medical School Wine Club (our name unchanged from its foundation) membership is made up of UCL and UCLH staff and friends.

We enjoy wine tasting in an informal and unstuffy atmosphere.  Our members range from those who know more about wine tasting than they care to admit to those who simply enjoy trying different wines.  Novices are warmly welcomed.

We meet approximately once a month and the evenings, including the occasional blind tasting or informal quiz, are run by guest speakers or informed members.

Bring your friends (who do not need to work or study at UCL or UCLH) for the sherry tasting; the ticket price includes light snacks.

Tickets cost £17.00* and must be bought in advance. Sorry, but no tickets will be sold at the door because the wine has to be ordered in advance.

*Membership is £5 per year and includes circulation of meeting details and £2 (if paid in advance) off each tasting.
