Wine Appreciation Group – An Appreciation
At an Open Day several years ago four enthusiastic ladies approached me and asked if they could start a wine group and shortly after Wine Appreciation was formed with Lesley Thompson in charge. The four grew into a dedicated five and briefly six. They took the U3A ethos ‘Learn, Laugh and Live’ to heart and had great fun trying at least two different wines each session (I’m told not one bottle was left with wine for another day). Meeting in each other’s homes the hostess provided, what turned out to be, lavish ‘nibbles’; almost a feast I would say. The wines were drunk and duly discussed. However, due to the sad death of one of the members and another two moving from the area, the group became too few to continue. The good news is that they still keep in touch and no doubt continue to raise a glass to each other.
