Johnian Society Day 2024

The Johnian Society is delighted to invite you to the Johnian Society Day on Saturday 28 September 2024 in College. The event brings together alumni of all generations to foster friendships and connections with one another.

This year we have an exciting programme for you, offering an in-depth look at the English wine industry. After tea, we will be joined by Graham Wrigley (Chilworth Manor Vineyard) and Jeremy Macklin (Marlbank Vineyard) for a short talk about their vineyards, how they got into winemaking, the positioning of UK wines and the impact of climate change on the industry. The talk will then be followed by a Q&A and wine tasting!

In the evening, we will be holding a drinks reception in College, followed by dinner in Hall.
