Munster Wine & Dine Launch Next Week

Munster Wine & Dine Launch
Anyone for gin? MWD members at
Ballyvolane House on a 2016 highlight visit.

Beverley, secretary of the Munster Wine & Dine Launch, has been in touch about next week's launch of the 2017 programme in Club Brasserie. Looks like it will be a terrific evening......

"Just a quick reminder for those of you who haven't signed up yet for the 2017 MWDC programme launch in Club Brasserie on Wednesday 15th Feb. We will need to confirm numbers with Club Brasserie by the end of this week, so can you let me know if you would like to come along by Friday at the latest? (see details of event in email below). Can you also advise of any special dietary requirements that we need to cater for?   

We look forward to seeing you next week and sharing our exciting programme for the upcoming year with you!"

2016 was a fantastic year for the Munster Wine & Dine Circle with lots of interesting and varied events and a significant increase in membership numbers. We are looking forward to 2017 and another year full of tastings, dinners, tours, and plenty more. 

Membership subscriptions for 2017 are now up for renewal. At the last committee meeting, it was agreed not to increase membership subs this year. Therefore, single membership is still €30 and joint membership €50. Please find membership renewal form for 2017 attached. Cheques can be made payable to the MWDC - we hope to have an e-payment system set up for future renewals but for the time being, payment can be made by cash or cheque.  

Membership renewals will be accepted at the 2017 programme launch, which we are delighted to announce will be held in The Club Brasserie on Lapps Quay on Wednesday 15th February (see details below). 

As 2016 saw a huge increase in interest and our numbers growing to over 60, we have decided to cap membership for 2017 at 70 to ensure that members get the chance to attend as many events as possible. We also feel that 70 is a more manageable number for the time being - we will review this number next year. Applications will therefore be accepted first from existing members who wish to renew for another year, and once all existing members who wish to renew have renewed, the committee will review applications from new members.      
   
We are really excited about our 2017 programme which we will be launching on Wednesday 15th February in The Club Brasserie on Lapps Quay. Beth and Harold have chosen some wonderful local products to showcase for the evening and have devised a brilliant menu of tasting dishes based on these products.

The evening will kick off at 7.15pm with a prosecco reception followed by a fun and informal tapas-style meal during which you'll have the opportunity to meet other members and we will share the programme for the year with you.  

Tickets for the event cost €25pp. 

If you'd like to attend the programme launch, please RSVP to mwdcircle@gmail.com immediately!
