Wine Appreciation is a new group that is meeting using zoom. We are meeting on the third Monday of the month in the evening.
The group is aimed at those who like a glass of wine but do not know very much about the different wines. We are hoping to increase our knowledge and confidence in buying and ordering wines.
Initially we have identified 4 white wines covering the range from light/sweet to dry/rich, and 4 red wines covering the range light bodied/fruity to full bodied /savoury. Trying all 8 wines will give us a good example of the potential range of flavors found in all wine.
We are going to try a different white or red wine alternate months. Each member will choose a bottle of that particular variety of wine to try at the zoom meeting, the country, or region will be a personal choice. They will then have an opportunity to share their findings.
Each month a different group member will facilitate that month’s meeting.
Over time we hope to learn
• How to taste wine
• Grapes varieties
• Regions & countries
• Methods of production.
• Wine and food in combination
• Storing, ageing, serving and tasting wine
We do not have any wine experts in the groups, rather we are supporting each other’s learning experience.
