Wine Appreciation Three

The first meeting of the new Wine Appreciation Group 3 will be on Thursday 19 April at 2pm at the White Lion, Beeston. Thereafter, we will meet on the third Thursday of each month.

The aim of the group is similar to the other two wine appreciation groups, offering the opportunity to explore, taste and discuss wines from different regions or made from particular grape varieties. Each tasting will have a theme. Future themes will be discussed and agreed at group meetings.

Prices of the wines will vary, depending on the quality and the theme, and each meeting will cover a range.

Glasses will be provided by U3A, but members may bring their own tasting glasses if they wish.

To get the group started, the first tasting will be Italian wines from Northern and Central Italy. It will include red and white wines, with some old favourites and a couple of more unusual grape varieties. The exact number of wines tasted, and the cost of the meeting, about £6 to £8 per person, will be decided by the members of the group present at the meeting.

I will be at the U3A Group Fair on 1st March to meet potential members and to answer questions about the group, or if you need any more information, please contact me by email: j.l.scottow@tesco.net
