A WINE interest group is meeting in Salisbury on August 14 to discuss the wine trade.

The group will attempt to unravel the complexities of how the wine trade does its buying and the ways some retailers have found to ‘cut out the middle man’.

There will also be a tasting of unusual French wines.

The meeting takes place at the Mercure White Hart Hotel at 7.15pm.

Anyone who would like help or advice with wine buying is invited to go along.

Seats are limited, contact Mark Brandon on 01722 328259 or brandywine@brandonmg.plus.com to book.
