Group Leader Dennis Freeman
U3A SUTTON BRIDGE WINE INTEREST GROUP - SWIG
The next SWIG date tends to be arranged when the members get together and chose the most beneficial date, there is no regular commitment.
The U3A Wine Group held a Christmas Wine Group party - hosted by Anne and Dennis.
Everyone brought a favourite bottle of wine for all members to try and some snacks to accompany the wines. Dennis inflicted a Wine Quiz on his willing victims and the surprised winners (seen in the photo receiving their bottle of mulled wine from Dennis) were Sylvia and Diane.
Format of meetings. The Wine Group meets at various venues and dates, usually at members' homes. Whoever is hosting chooses and researches details of 3 to 5 wines and purchases the nibbles and wines. Glasses are provided and a jigger (to measure quantity so you know what you have drunk).
We are all learning, and no prior knowledge is necessary, just some on-line research and enthusiasm. Member hosts may choose a grape variety, a country or region, a supermarket or wine merchant or just what you like to drink. The choice is theirs.
An initial attendance fee is set at £10 per person to cover costs, £5 per meeting thereafter.
The Wine Appreciation Group is now full, but if you are interested in joining the waiting list, please contact Dennis for details.
