A varied programme of Events is organised for Old Wykehamists. All OWs are invited to the annual Winchester Match which takes place at the School in June. 

The now well-established Year-on Reunions in London or Winchester have become very popular. The term ‘Class of’ refers to the year of leaving Winchester. Those in the years above and below are also invited.

Events are organised for a range of age-groups, from Pizza Evenings at various universities for undergraduates, the Under 25s Dinner to the 60+ Years-on Reunion Dinner. Regional Dinners are also held regularly, giving those who are unable to travel to London or Winchester the opportunity to get together.

OW Wine Tasting (Online Event)  
Thursday 13 May 2021. 6.30pm
Simon Taylor (F, 1970-74) is the founder of wine merchants Stone, Vine & Sun of Hampshire. In Common Time he took an enthralled audience on a short tour of Cape wines. On 13 May, he will lead another virtual tasting, this time of wines from the South of France, a region he has championed ever since he founded his business in 2002. Simon will introduce six wines from his Provence and Languedoc-Roussillon range: two whites, a rosé and three reds, which will demonstrate the value and quality to be discovered there. Simon will be joined by two young vignerons from Roussillon, Elodie and Matthieu Collet of Domaine Fontanel.

Included in each tasting pack will be six full bottles of wine, retailing between £12.50 and £20 a bottle, a tasting sheet and a simple and effective gas preservative tin which will keep the open bottles fresh for up to a fortnight. Places for this event are extremely limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so book early to avoid disappointment! Tickets cost £100. RSVP: 27 April
