Group Wine Appreciation
Meet: Second Thursday at 7.45pm
Location: Hadsley Room, Ware Priory

This is a Hertford U3A group to which Ware members are invited.

Our aim is to combine knowledge with pleasure. We taste 6/7 wines at each meeting on a specific theme using the expertise of group members or an outside speaker. We aim to learn not only the principles of wine appreciation but also about grapes, their names and wine producing regions of the world. We also look at the relationship between food and wine - more in theory than in practice.

For more information, contact Brian Thompson via email.

If you're interested in either of these evenings, please contact Pam Jones via email so the right number of bottles can be ordered.

New members are welcome.
