Wine Appreciation

Group Conveners : Kathy McHale and Diana Pavey

A sociable group of members interested in and wanting to learn more about wine-tasting, production, types of grapes, regional variations, history of winemaking and more

❑ Regular monthly meetings are generally themed, agreed by members and most recently have included ‘sparkling’ wines, regional wines from both old and new world including English wines. More formal sessions are facilitated by Luisa Welch, a member of the group and professional wine educator. Less formal sessions may be facilitated by group members and have included ‘wines from our travels’, local supermarkets and wine shops suggested by group members

❑ Meetings are held in a member’s home with a plated supper generally prepared by the host, usually the member whose house where we are meeting

❑ In addition to the regular monthly meetings events are arranged to include a summer garden and festive party as well as at at local cafes/restaurants to which members on the reserve list are invited

❑ Costs to cover 5/6 bottles of wine for tasting, food and 2 bottles of wine for drinking with supper are £20 per participant payable at the meeting. As costs are incurred in advance of the meeting it is important that members confirm attendance and commit to attending
