The North East Wine Tasting Society (NEWTS) is an informal social group that meets once a month in Newcastle Upon Tyne to taste and discuss wine.

Who are we?

We're an eclectic mix of wine lovers from Tyne & Wear and Northumberland who've made a hobby out of wine and, for some, turned it into a job. Mostly though, we just turn up to taste new and interesting bottles, pass comment, chat to new friends and share our love of fermented grape juice.


As a gathering of enthusiastic wine lovers we enjoy finding out about the nuances of wine; The Good, The Bad and - very occasionally - The Ugly!
