Wine Appreciation

Thu 14 Apr, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 months that begins at 7:00 pm on day Second of the month, repeating indefinitely

The u3a Wine Appreciation Society has now been running for 10 years.
Our objective is to take a not too serious look at the world of wine by keeping up to date with all new trends and products available on the market; discussing Grape varieties and new trends often with blind tastings.

The group now has considerable experience in buying and tasting and all members are welcome to front a session should they wish.
We normally taste and discuss 7 – 9 wines and conduct regular “blind” tastings all of which are a lot of fun.
Tasting glasses and tasting sheets are provided. A kitchen is available for the supply of water.

All costs are shared and the average “fee” will be £12 per head, this covers the cost of wines and of course the room hire and parking charge, this is presided over by our treasurer working in conjunction with the u3a in Bury.

In the past, we have organised a group visit to a local vineyard and this is something we hope to repeat.
Future plans hope to include Food, Cheese, and Wine pairings.

Membership needs to be restricted to 30. The group is at present oversubscribed and there is a waiting list. Inquiries from new members would always be welcome. Please contact me directly, Bob.
