Wine Appreciation 1
This group was formed when Ems Valley U3A was formed!. We meet once a month on the third Tuesday of the month at 3.00pm in the Church Hall, Church Path, Emsworth, and taste 6 wines. For the past eight years we have ventured abroad, to wine regions in Europe, during the summer.
We have a wine tasting barbecue in July, and a wine tasting Gourmet Dinner in January or February. As the group progresses we study wines and grape varieties in a little more detail! We have a membership of over 50.
We operate on a 12 month term subscription basis, to include all wines for the year. Renewal time is January.
Wine Tasting Tours
Wine Appreciation One is now retiring from the European Tour stage, after ten successive annual visits to France, Spain, Italy Germany and Portugal. You can see photographical memories of the last two on the Wine One sub page. But we are not entirely going into hibernation. We go to Denbies Vineyards on 18th June at Dorking, we have our Wine Tasting Barbecue in July and we regularly attract an attendance of 40 or more at our monthly meetings. If anyone wishes to borrow my recent 120 page book entitled "U3A Wine Appreciation - ten years wine travels in Europe" please email me and I will see if it is available.
