The wine appreciation group has been running successfully for seven years. Although we have a strong nucleus of members we would welcome a few new participants. We have therefore decided to revisit some fundamentals at the beginning of the Autumn term in order to cater for such members.The group meets, currently, on the third Tuesday of the month at the Colliton Club at 7.15 pm.
To cover the cost of up to five different wines, we contribute £5 per meeting. Our aim is to learn about different wines – how they are made, different grape varieties and the importance of climate and soil. Matching wine with food is important; however we have discovered that it is a highly individual preference. Occasionally we have a meal together or visit a vineyard which provides an opportunity to taste local wines.
You do not need any knowledge about wine to join us.
If you are interested in joining the group, or would like more information, please contact me.
