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.
