WINE GROUP

See below for planned events. If anyone would like to join the (very informal) committee of hosts and helpers please let me know. Please let me have any suggestions for events by type of wine, region, country, grape variety or anything else you can think of.

Dear Member,

I trust you all enjoyed Lauren’s Desert Island wines as much as I did (I’ve just circulated her notes on the wines, gin and tonic); and a gin tasting could be an event for next year’s programme if all are in favour. I have also been asked to organise an UERSA vineyard tour in early July and will send you the details as soon as I have them.

Thursday 4th May - Wine Tasting Competition (with prizes)

Our next wine tasting will be at 7pm on Thursday 4th May at 21 The Mint and as they say “now for something completely different” a Wine Tasting Competition (with prizes) by Roger Seebold.

This is your chance to become an acknowledged UERSA wine expert by tasting and appraising five white and five red wines. Roger has produced a description of the event, which you can download here.

If you’d like to come along and enjoy the fun please ask me for a booking slip, and return it to me as soon as possible, and no later than 27th April. (The last event reached our maximum of 30 attendees and I had to turn down a couple of late bookings.) Tickets are 10 each.

Thursday 20th July - South American Wines

(NOTE change of date)

Tuesday 10th October - Bordeaux: Appellations and Classifications

Kind Regards

John Carroll
