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 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.


2020 meetings programme

25 February 2020. Is wine under a fiver worth drinking?

You’ve probably seen some recent research noting that over half the wine drunk in the UK costs under a fiver. What the glowing text on the label doesn’t tell you though is that the drinkable contents may have cost as little as 30p – the rest is packaging, taxes and margins. But if you move up to £10 for your bottle, the wine itself could well be worth over £3. This tasting will set out to check whether our palates agree that a £5 bottle may not be worth the investment. But is a £10 one worth the extra?
