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.

2021 meetings programme 

20th July. We had a very successful Buffet Lunch wine tasting. This was a grand get-together for 36 members to re-connect after nearly 18 months without a wine tasting. See some pictures below.

Given the continuing uncertainties of the new normal we decided to fix just two more meetings this year, before getting back into a full series of tastings in 2022.

28th September. Tutored tasting of up to ten French wines by Ian Lloyd.

In April 2020 we were looking forward to an expert tasting from Ian Lloyd, the wine writer for our local Advertiser magazine. The enforced 17 month delay has not dimmed Ian’s fondness for Old World wines, particularly from France, for a tutored tasting of 10 wines from Bordeaux, the Loire, Alsace and Provence.

7th December. Traditional Festive Lunch at Sadlers.
