Wine Appreciation 2
Coordinator: Linda L
This Group has the same interests as group 1
Update October 2020
There are eight members in our group and before the onset of lockdown we met once a month on a Thursday. We purchased two bottles of either red or white wine from various countries and had 50 ml of tasters in a glass. We made our comments on the wine as to colour, grape variety, taste on palate and what type of meal you would have with it.
Once a year we had a BBQ in summer, and winter dinner at a member’s house. Each member was tasked to bring either a starter or dessert and a selection of cheese and chocolates. The main meal is cooked by the host with the wine mainly being red, with a dessert wine & port to drink with the cheese.
----- Lockdown means we are not able to meet in person, so we have a weekly Zoom meeting. We drink our own wines and tell the others all about it. It is very sociable for the 40 minutes duration. Here is a screen shot of us of one of our meeting. It goes to show that group activities can continue while we have social distancing rules in place
It must be said that this way does not have the same personal connection as meeting sociably, but it is a good way with Zoom allowing us to continue to keep the group and its members connected
