Convenors: Penny and Adrian Tel: 01434 682 939
The Wine Appreciation Group was set up earlier this year with the aim of bringing wine-lovers together to share knowledge, opinions - and, of course, wine. We meet in the afternoon, roughly once a month (meetings are arranged to fit members' diaries), at the convenor's house in Riding Mill. Members team up in pairs to buy and present wines to the group; the tasting leads on to light-hearted discussion and rating of all the wines. Shiraz/syrah, riesling, merlot, chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon are all on the programme for the next few months.
