WINE APPRECIATION GROUP – A NEW VINTAGE

New members

The Wine Appreciation Group is an unstuffy collection of people who want to learn about and compare wines that will help us choose the best – whether for a daily glass, a dinner party or even a wedding. We aim to meet every two months in Faringdon or nearby. All u3a members are welcome and there’s no annual subscription, just a charge for each event you come to.
