Thank you George and Carol for last night. A lively night, but that is usually the case. Some interesting names to the wines. Hard to pronounce some!
Thanks again.


We tasted five wines, the first four were well received and the majority of our group liked the first white and red.  I chose the Austrian wine because a number of our U3A members travelled together there this summer for a holiday.


The Blush  was a very pale pink, light and refreshing, just right for a glass or two on a warm summers evening whilst sitting in the garden.


The Rioja, was a disappointment, both in taste and bouquet, as a group we would not recommend this wine.
