Wine Appreciation 1
WINE APPRECIATION ONE
This group was formed as one of the first interest groups when
Ems Valley U3A started in 2005! We meet once a month on the
third Tuesday of the month at 3.15pm in the Church Hall, Church
Path, Emsworth, and we taste 6 wines, normally 3 red and 3
From 2009 to 2018 we travelled abroad to Wine regions in
Europe, during the month of June. Our last wine visit was to
Northern Italy in June 2018. These visits gave us a great insight
into old world wines as well as very varied sightseeing
We have a wine tasting barbecue in July, and a wine tasting
Gourmet Dinner in January or February. We have a total
membership of 55 and at any one tasting we average 40
members. Normal tastings commenced again, following the
relaxation of Covid lockdown restrictions, in August 2021.
We operate on a 12 month term subscription basis, to include all
monthly tasting wines for the year. Renewal time is January.
The Barbecue and Wine Tasting dinners are charged separately.
The group is currently led by Alan Borrow who was in the wine
trade for the latter part of his working career.
