Founded by Carlo Caro and James Edward Fournier in 2011, the Durham Champagne Society was established to mix the culture of quality champagne tasting of prestigious champagne houses with events, personally described by Tatler magazine as 'rivers of fizz' (2016). This year with multiple tasting events and our annual Winter and Summer balls, we invite you to become a member of this prestigious society and look forward to seeing you in the future at our social events.  

Events this year: 1st Term: October Tasting, The Winter Ball. 2nd Term: February Tasting. 3rd Term: Summer Tasting, The Summer Ball.
