For those members with an interest in wine

Wine Appreciation Group

Autumn is rapidly approaching so it is time to get the Wine group together again. Audrey is continuing to kindly offer her house as a venue. Florence and Eleanor have been doing some serious research over the summer and will tell us about what they have found.

We meet on Wednesday 19th September at 7pm. There will be a limit to numbers to 18 as usual (sorry it is all that can be squeezed out of a 750ml bottle). I will reply to every email I receive confirming their place or otherwise. If you wish to attend please e-mail Peter at

Wine Appreciation Group – November meeting.

The U3A Wine Tasting group met at Audrey Kellett’s house on Thursday 24th November.

Tom and Roberta Duncan’s ‘Mystery Talk’ turned out to be a well illustrated talk about the Constantia winery near Capetown in South Africa. The distinctive feature about the tasting was the chocolate pairing devised by the Constantia wine company. Members had the opportunity to taste three different types of chocolate specially produced for the 3 exclusive Constantia wines to be sampled. The taste buds were tantalised by the chocolates which were infused with exotic flavours to complement the wines.

A good night was had by all.
