Fabulous feedback, thanks for that!
Hadnt thought of breaking it down to stuff like hydrometer use but thats perfect, short and simple then a tasting and some nibbles etc and chat time!!!
My friends cafe houses my gallery space (I manage a second gallery on a part time basis as well in case of any confusion!) so the cafe at night is only used rarely as a cafe, it will be all ours for private functions so fine art, fine food and fine home made wines should be easy to sort.
Thought of guest speakers and maybe getting our local home brew shop to come along and do things like talk on stuff and sell some of their wares etc...after all Im still learning and my friend I have convinced to start so neither of us would be suitable yet!!!!
I will keep you posted on what happens, we are having a meeting on saturday (over wine of course!) and Ill bring up these ideas you have come up with. I personally dont have to do most of the organising but I will definitely be putting in lots of effort to make it succesful too. Its a team effort I think and often there is only one person doing all the work, Im lucky enough to have my friend who is super keen also and super organised.
Thanks for the help.
