Another excellent afternoon of wine, nibbles and chat. Wine provided by Lorna, nibbles supplied by Lorna, chat supplied by all!
The wines were chosen by the artistic nature of their labels but all agreed that “Rex Mundi” sourced from Laithwaites was an excellent wine.
Thanks again to Gill & Roger for hosting us.
The Fun with Wine Group set off early doors from the Beehive heading for the Three Choirs Vineyard in Gloucestershire for a wine tasting and lunch.
Despite Carmen’s gallant attempt to make a Cotswolds Autumn day look like a Tuscany summer, the weather on the day was definitely on the chilly side.
We had a very knowledgeable guide who showed us around the winery and topped up our glasses as we went. Of particular interest was the sparkling wine process which turns out to be accompanied by a satisfying pop for each bottle filled.
We then headed for the restaurant and attempted to decimate the local wild boar population, fulfilling a special request from Gill’s sister.
As we are the original Wine Group, several bottles of wine were criticised praised and consumed along with the usual friendly banter.
The day was topped off by our cheerful driver who was happy to do a scenic tour around Carterton distributing the group back to their residences.
The next “Fun with Wine ” group is on March 30th at 13 Corbett Road. 2.30 p.m. start. As usual my contact phone number is 01993 843236.
As a matter of interest, following last months slide show we are expecting two new members on March 30th which is great. Roger

The Fun with wine Group meets on the fourth Thursday of the month but it is always best to check nearer the time as we sometimes change the date to make sure everyone can come. (We are a very friendly group!)
